Cliff Lee, one of the few true bright spots of this Phillies team, looks for win #14 tonight. With 1/3 of an inning, Lee will hit the 200 inning plateau for the sixth straight year. He’s been one of the steadiest pitchers in baseball during that time, yet he sort of flies under the radar because of how this team has taken a nosedive.

I know Monday Night Football is on, but do yourself a favor and flip between the Phils and the Bengals/Steelers game. Who knows how much longer Lee will be in his prime and we should take in the fact that he’s still pitching at a supreme level.

Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Brown, LF, Ruf 1B, Asche 3B, Bernadina RF, Lee P

download (2)Gameday Beer: Rogue Dead Guy Ale

In the style of a German Maibock, Rogue Dead Guy uses Pacman ale yeast. It’s deep honey in color with a malty aroma and a rich hearty flavor. It’s really good, too. As Edgar Allan Poe once said, “Who cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today.” Gotta love that. Spend it drinking a 22 oz. bottle of this. -PG

    Great game and only one comment! Best performance of the season maybe? Vintage Cliff Lee tonight- pitching and hitting.

      Lefty,
      I agree! Cliff put on a clinic tonight from both avenues: hitting and pitching. I think if we can get healthy, fix a few holes in the off-season, and keep Ryne at the helm, we could be in for an exciting, positive 2014 season…I hope.

    I wish I still lived somewhere were I could have watch this game. The highlights on MLB made it look like Cliff was cruising both on the mound and at the plate.
