Gameday: Diamondbacks (46-47) At Phillies (51-43)

Today the Phillies will try and continue their winning streak against Randy Johnson and the Diamondbacks. Johnson isn’t the pitcher he once was, but he has a 10-3 record with an impressive 2.61 ERA in 19 starts against the good guys. Among players with a lot of experience against the lefty, Pedro Feliz is hitting .217, Pat Burrell is hitting .154, Jimmy Rollins is hitting .167 and, somehow, Geoff Jenkins is hitting a respectable .273. Take that, lefties. Jayson Werth also has three hits in nine at bats against him.

Werth got the big hit last night, ending a 12-inning roller coaster. The bullpen was used a bit, but not too much to cramp them. Look for Ryan Madson to get into the game once Eaton is pulled, because Eaton will get pulled.

Phillies: Adam Eaton (3-7) 5.20 ERA
Diamondbacks: Randy Johnson (5-7) 5.18 ERA

Gametime: 3:55 p.m. EST
Weather: 88, partly cloudy
Lineup: Victorino/Werth/Rollins/Howard/Burrell/Feliz/Bruntlett/Ruiz/Eaton

MLB Gameday

Your gameday beer: Was at Monk’s yesterday and tried some St. Bernardus Abt 12, an abbey beer from Belgium. Man, oh man, get it. It’s got a strong, dark color and has a bit of a nutty flavor, but it’s so light and smooth you won’t believe it. And it’s potent. Got me tipsy in no time. Eat some ol’ mussels with it.

Go Phillies!
