Last night was incredible at Citizens Bank Park, with the Phillies coming back from a 3-0 deficit in the ninth inning to defeat the Astros, 4-3. Chris Snelling, Pat Burrell, Geoff Jenkins and Pedro Feliz all got huge hits, while Chase Utley got hit, all off Jose Valverde in that splendid ninth.
Tonight Kyle Kendrick will try to get back on track; Jimmy Rollins is still out, but he pinch hit yesterday and may be back tomorrow. Pedro Feliz, who has great career numbers against Roy Oswalt, will hit second.
Phillies: Kyle Kendrick (1-1), 6.14 ERA
Astros: Roy Oswalt (0-3), 9.00 ERA
Gametime: 7:05 p.m.
Weather: 62 degrees, sunny
Your gameday beer: If Kyle Kendrick has a third-consecutive stinker, it might be time to actually send him to Japan for Kobayashi. So, hot dog eaters, have a Sapporo Draft. It’s the basic Japanese American microbrew. Not great, but not bad. Do I even have to tell you what to eat with this?
