Philadelphia Phillies (9-13) vs Pittsburgh Pirates (12-9)
Cliff Lee (2-1, 2.83) vs. James McDonald (2-2, 4.12)
Last night was a total bummer. Can it get any better? The offense is a mess, despite both Chase Utley and Ryan Howard going yard against lefties last night, and it seems when the starters do well, the bullpen does not – or vice versa. They can’t play a complete game, and they haven’t in what seems like ages.
Lineup: Rollins SS, Frandsen 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Nix RF, Brown LF, Carerra CF, Kratz C, Lee P.
GAMEDAY BEER: Goose Island Night Stalker
This just sounds like a fun beer, and it was give a perfect 100 by Rate Beer. It is a jet black, dry hopped Imperial Stout, extremely rich and full flavored with malt and chocolate followed by a bright dry hopped aroma. It’s also 11.7 % ABV, so tread carefully. Although, with the way the Phillies are playing, a stronger beer is now a necessity.
