The Phils will look to bounce back after losing a tough pitcher’s duel in the Queen City last night. Kendrick takes the hill against the Red Legs and may have his work cut out for him: current Reds hitters are hitting .349/.359/.635 with 5 HR in 66 PA against him.
Meanwhile, the Phils will look to solve Bailey, who has held the current Phils to a .244/.270/.314 line in 90 PAs. Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins have had the most success while Chase Utley has struggled against the 6’4″ righty. Bailey’s last outing against the Phils (August 21, 2012) ended with a W, giving up only two earned in 6.1 IP.
LINEUP: Revere CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Young 3B, Brown LF, Nix RF, Quintero C, Kendrick P
Your Gameday Beer – Rock Ice
This is a Costa Rican important that is generally noted as one of the nastiest, grossest, least-tasty beers on the market. So why is it the Gameday beer? I’m feeling a cold, rainy, nasty, ugly game where both teams will either hit the lights out or be stifled by accidentally fantastic pitching that is aided by the rain. It worked last week for Kendrick – here is hoping for a repeat performance!
