Chase Utley is playing at Reading tonight. More good news, the Phillies can sweep the Nats with a win tonight.

It’s up to Kyle Kendrick to bounce back from a terrible start in Colorado over the weekend. We’ll see if he’s trending down or if it was the Rocky Mountain air.

With one mroe RBI, Michael Young will hit 1,000 for his career – a nice milestone. If/when he gets there, he’ll be the 242nd player in MLB history.

Lineup: Revere CF, Young 3B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, D. Young RF, Frandsen 2B, Ruiz C, Kendrick P

Gameday Beer: Elysian The Wise ESB

Last night we went with Loser from Elysian, which has a bit of a bittery taste for a pale ale. Tonight’s brew is an extra-special bitter. The Wise ESB Pours reddish-copper with a thin, creamy beige head. Subtle smells of caramel, honey, citrus and grassy floral hops entice while the taste delivers a pleasantly bold hop flavor against a very strong malt backbone. Well-balanced and delicious. Grill some chicken and pop some brussel sprouts in the pan, and enjoy tonight’s game. -PG

    but their 3,4, and 5 hitters are automatic outs right now. Howard , Brown, and D Young. Luckily they are playing a team even worse offensively.

    Another BS for Paps… ugh. And we haven’t had a hit since the 1st inning. This is looking grim.

    @Adam, Stutesy may be. But remember Lap allowed this to happen!!!

    Howard that was YOUR put out w Denard Span at 1st base in the 9th. And then PAP was late to cover the bag. Span scored via that overpaid d*ck Werths single.

    Howard was starting to look so much better at the plate of late.
    Gio made him look like a fool, like a sand lot player.
