Is J-Roll’s return going to provide the Phillies with the offensive spark they’ve been looking for?
Has Ryan Howard turned the corner or is he still flirting with disaster?
Will Jamie Moyer show another young pitcher who’s the boss?
Can the Phillies extend their league-leading road wins to 12?
These questions and more will be answered this afternoon as the Phillies take on the Giants for the fifth time in nine days. 23-year old Tim Lincecum takes to the mound for San Fransisco after going six innings and allowing 4 unearned runs in his start last Sunday against the Phils. He has a 9.00 ERA against the Phillies in his career but is pitching at the 1.49 mark this season. Jamie Moyer was drafted the same month Lincecum was born (June 1984).
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (2-2) 4.15 ERA
Giants: Tim Lincecum (2-1) 1.49 ERA
Gametime: 4:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 50 degrees, fair
Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Jenkins, Feliz, Coste, Moyer
MLB Gameday Audio
Your gameday beer: Keeping with the San Francisco theme, this afternoon’s beer is Anchor Steam. Brewed in the Bay Area since 1896, this drink has a deep amber color, thick creamy head, and rich flavor. You can drink it with anything, but I’m gonna recommend some bar food like chili fries or nachos.
