John Maine, 4-0 lifetime against the Phillies, will try to stop the good guys’ four-game winning streak tonight when the rivals clash at Citizens Bank Park. The Phils bring Jamie Moyer to the hill. In two starts against the Mets this season, Moyer is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA.
Last night the Phils got to Johan Santana, then pulled off the walk-off with a Shane Victorino single. JA Happ pitched well enough to get to the bullpen, which was dominant in keeping the Mets from doing anything at all. A total win. Pedro Feliz is a hidden hero from yesterday’s game, striking a two-out double and scoring on Vic’s single. He’s hitting .500 (6-for-12) in his last three games.
It’ll be hot at the park tonight (you know, I’ll be there), though the weather is luke warm and rain is expected.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (7-6) 4.13 ERA
Mets: John Maine (8-6) 3.86 ERA
Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 77, possible storms
Your gamenight beer: From Bourbon Brown to Black Bavarian. This black ale is satisfyingly nutty and filled with strong aromas, though it’s not necessarily heavy. It’s the perfect kind of beer to drink during a Moyer start â a little more aged, a little more complex, a little easy on the pallet. A good drink for your post-Fourth hangover. Have some grilled steak with it. Ya know, leftovers.
