Gameday: Phillies (20-15) At Diamondbacks (22-12)

If you went to bed last night before the eighth inning, shame on you. The Phillies did what they do best by beating the D-Backs with a late flurry. They’re at 20 wins now, and are only the third National League team to reach that mark.

It’ll be difficult to reach 21 today. The boys will face all-universe starter Brandon Webb, who is 7-0 and is your early favorite for NL Cy Young. The Phillies counter with their “ace,” Brett Myers, who pitched relatively well his late time out, a no decision against the Giants. If the Phils win, they would take the weeklong series, 3-1. Pat Burrell gets the day off after two straight 0-for games. Greg Dobbs gets the start at third base.

Phillies: Brett Myers (2-2), 4.70 ERA
Diamondbacks: Brandon Webb (7-0) 2.49 ERA

Gametime: 3:40 p.m.
90 degrees, sunny
Lineup: Victorino, Bruntlett, Utley, Howard, Jenkins, Dobbs, Taguchi, Coste, Myers

Your gameday beer: Hopefully Brandon Webb doesn’t put a spell on the Phils, but I’m prepared. Today we go with Hocus Pocus by Magic Hat. Kind of a second-rate Sam Adams Summer Ale, it’s light and refreshing and goes well with a burrito.

Go Phillies!
