Last night Adam Eaton didn’t pitch well enough to give the Phillies a win; tonight, Kyle Kendrick will have to baffle the Baby-Backs, as he faces Micah Owings. While Owings isn’t dominant, he sports a superb run support of 6.63 (of course, almost all the D-Back starters have high run support numbers). It’s up to Kendrick to subdue the tough Arizona offense.
Phillies: Kyle Kendrick (2-2), 5.01 ERA
Diamondbacks: Micah Owings (4-1) 4.42 ERA
Gametime: 9:40 p.m.
Weather: 84 degrees, sunny
Lineup: Victorino, Bruntlett, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Jenkins, Feliz, Ruiz, Kendrick
Your gamenight beer: I don’t necessarily want to honor an opponent’s player, but Micah Owings is Jewish, and how often do we get to drink Jewish beer? Here is He’Brew’s (good name, eh?) Rejewvenator (good name, eh?). Though it’s not the one pictured (that’s Genesis 10:10, which is retired â€” to the sauna ha ha ha), it’s a German-type (ironic?) kind of beer with multiple flavors and textures. Drink it with â€” uhhhh â€” matzo.
