Breaking: Phillies sign LHP Steve Kline.
Life without Jimmy Rollins: Blunder-rific.
The Phils lost yesterday, 8-2, but will look to rebound tonight. Good defense is essential, as is timely hitting, especially against the tough John Maine. Adam Eaton gets the call for the road grays. A Phils win would give them a 2-1 series win and bragging rights for the next week.
Rollins is a game-time decision; the Mets today signed Claudio Vargas to a Minor League deal.
Phillies: Adam Eaton (0-1), 3.52 ERA
Mets: John Maine (0-1), 9.00 ERA
Gametime: 7:10 p.m.
Weather: 60 degrees, partly cloudy
Your gameday beer: Last night without Rollins, the Phils looked dead. That’s why Dead Guy Ale is the way to go tonight! It’s a light, crisp beer that has some strong hops inside. Made in Oregon, it’s a good compliment for some grilled chicken and asparagus. Eat classy.
