One more time, VOTE BURRELL.
The Phillies snapped a four-game losing streak, beating the Cardinals 4-2 Wednesday night. JA Happ pitched 6+ innings and was pretty effective in handling the Cardinals. The Phils took an early lead, and while they blew it, the offense responded with solo shots by Ryan Howard and Pedro Feliz in the eighth. Brad Lidge collected his 20th save.
Today it’s the final game of the triple set, and the Phils will gun for their 50th win of the season, with Jamie Moyer going against the Cards. Moyer has been generally effective this season. He’ll face Braden Looper, who has had a pretty similar season, having a few bad starts but a bunch of quality, non-dominant affairs. This should be a close one.
Alyssa Milano is at the ballpark today, promoting her clothing campaign with Major League Baseball. If that matters.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (7-6) 4.12 ERA

Your gameday beer: I’ll be at the game today, having a nice brew while enjoying the summer sun and a Jamie Moyer outing. I won’t have it, but I’ll recommend Yards Saison. An easy beer, it’s a farmhouse-style brew. I might have some pulled pork today, so eat that with it.
