Gameday: Phillies (53-45) At Marlins (51-46)

The Phillies will look to take the three-game series from the Marlins today as Cole Hamels faces Josh Johnson.

For Johnson, it’s his second start back from Tommy John surgery. In his first, he went five innings, giving up three runs while striking out six and walking none. Not bad. For Hamels, it’s his 21st start of the season. He’s received a nice rest since his last start a week ago, and he’ll try to have his ninth consecutive start of seven innings or more.

In his only start against the Fish this season, Hamels had one of the worst starts of his career. He went 5.2 innings, giving up seven runs on eight hits.

Phillies: Cole Hamels (9-6) 3.15 ERA
Marlins: Josh Johnson (0-0) 5.40 ERA

Gametime: 1:10 p.m. EST
Weather: 89, storms
Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Jenkins, Feliz, Ruiz, Hamels

MLB Gameday

Your gameday beer: Yesterday I tried Phin & Matt’s Extraordinary Ale from Southern Tier. I smelled it, and it smelled like a pale ale. I sipped it, and I narrowed it down to an American Pale Ale. I looked it up to find out, and I was dead on. This APA is distinct with strong bitterness, but that’s what you want out of a pale ale. It wasn’t bad. Nothing great, and nothing I’d drink regularly. But it was good. Eat some oysters with it.

Go Phillies!
