Today is a perfect opportunity for Phillies starter Cole Hamels to turn his season around. The Phils are coming off a big win last night thanks to a walk-off grand slam by John Mayberry Jr, and Hamels gets to face a Marlins team that he’s had success against this year. In three starts, he has a 2.25 ERA and 21 strikeouts. He’s coming off another rough start, however–a 5 inning, six run outing against the Brewers. Hamels hasn’t pitched all that bad this year, either.

His high ERA is (in my opinion) a mix of some sub-par pitching and shoddy defense behind him. I think he’s been better than his 4.86 ERA suggests. Still, though, Hamels has to be feeling the frustration of not getting any run support, along with his defenders making it even tougher for him to pitch well and win games. This is why today is perfect for Hamels. He is facing MLB’s worst team, who were on the receiving end of a gut punch last night.

For the Marlins, Jacob Turner will get the start, and he’s coming off his season debut against the Mets where he pitched seven scoreless innings against the Mets. He only has 14 career starts, so he’ll be new to the Phillies.

Lineup: Revere CF, M Young 3B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Mayberry RF, Kratz C, Galvis 2B, Cole Hamels P

Whirlwind WitbierYour Gameday Beer – Whirlwind Witbier
Tonight we have a gentle offering by Victory. This classic German Witbier is supremely drinkable on any evening, especially a rainy one like today. The flavor is comprised by wheat malt and yeast with notes of orange zest, coriander, and clove. Essentially, it’s another more sophisticated version of Blue Moon, if you fancy those. If you can find some fresh shellfish, like a bushel of crabs, have that with it. – By Brian

    Another must win for the Phillies.

    Is there some brain damage with Revere? to make the first out of the first inning trying to steal third?

    Guys an idiot period. Hard to win with players who have 0 understanding of the sport or how to play it.

    Go Phils

    lets double Coles win total

    How good is Hamels command today on 45 strikes in 56 pitches? It’s Lee like.

    Tehran has 79 pitches, 56 strikes which isn’t Lee like.

    But Tehran takes a no-no to the 7th with 9 K’s. That’s pretty Lee like.

    Just when I’m wondering where and when this fairy tale about the no hit jinx started, Tehran yields a base knock.

    I mean within a millisecond.

    Life is truly a bitch.

    That inning oughta show well in the 2013 highlight film presentation. No runs, 1 hit, 0 errors and 12,000 left on base. FREAKING hate this batting order, but good lord, what’s a manager to do with this contingent.

    They can’t do this.

    But guess what?

    They couldn’t even do this.

    Even. At last.

    And the great quote from Joaqin Andujar stands tall. “Yaneverknow.”
