Two homers. Five ribbies. Rod Barajas was a beast last night against the Phillies … blah, blah, blah that’s a broken record.
Time to get down to business. The Phils offense hasn’t been much outside Jayson Werth and Jimmy Rollins lately â€” it’s time for the big boys to step up, and no better time than today, with the Phils facing Blue Jay stud pitcher Shaun Marcum. He is 4-2 with a 2.22 ERA. The Phils will counter with Kyle Kendrick, who wasn’t bad his late time out against the Braves.
Carlos Ruiz is starting today, back from his illness. Werth starts again. Rain is in the forecast yet again.
Phillies: Kyle Kendrick (3-2) 4.87 ERA
Blue Jays: Shaun Marcum (4-2) 2.22 ERA
Gametime: 1:35 p.m. EST
Weather: 65 degrees, rain
Lineup: Rollins, Werth, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Jenkins, Feliz, Ruiz, Kendrick

Your gameday beer: As we say goodbye to a Canadian counterpart, we do so in style. It’s Moosehead tonight. Cleaner than most of its American brothers, it finishes nicely and can be drank in bunches. Eat some honey glazed chicken with it.
