Gamenight: Phillies (24-21) At Nationals (19-26)

After losing two of three to the lowly Blue Jays, the Phillies need to rebound starting tonight against the Washington Nationals. After these three, it’s four in Houston to face the overachieving Astros. Five of seven is realistic and wanted.

Problem is the Phils face Tim Redding, who threw a complete game two-hitter against the Phils to begin the season. This time the Phils will need to materialize a heck of a lot more offense. Brett Myers, who has performed poorly this season, looks to rebound tonight.

It’s the first time the Phils will play at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

Phillies: Brett Myers (2-4) 5.91 ERA
Nationals: Tim Redding (5-3) 3.55 ERA

Gametime: 7:10 p.m. EST
Weather: 65 degrees, partly cloudy
Lineup: Rollins, Werth, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Jenkins, Dobbs, Ruiz, Myers

Your gameday beer: Tonight, grab a RedHook Blonde Ale. It’s citrusy but not too much, and it goes down pretty smooth. To eat, have some pasta tossed in olive oil and mushrooms, topped by formaggio.

Go Phillies!
