Gamenight: Phillies (54-46) At Mets (53-47)

After a miraculous win in game one, the Phillies look to take the three-game set with the Mets tonight.

Welcome Back, Brett: Brett Myers returns to the Phillies rotation after being sent down to the Minor Leagues July 1. He had four starts down there, and each was good, but not great. We’ll see how the fastball is doing when he faces David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and the like.

Not The Maine Man: John Maine is scheduled for the Mets, and he’s been atrocious lately. He has given up 14 runs in his last four starts, never once getting out of the sixth inning. One of those starts was against the Phillies, and though he gave up one hit, it was a three-run home run from Ryan Howard.

Collpase Continued: The Mets should have a skip in their step to avoid another monumental collapse like they had last night. What the Phillies must do: Hit early and hit hard.

First Place: It’s kind of on the line tonight.

Phillies: Brett Myers (3-9) 5.84 ERA
Mets: John Maine (8-7) 4.22 ERA

Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 80, cloudy

MLB Gameday

Your gameday beer: Since Brett Myers is back tonight, and we want to give him the benefit of the doubt, here is Pranqster, in his honor. It’s a tasty Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale. Eat some linguini with shrimp tonight. I just hope the Pranqster himself can go seven and give up as little as humanly possible.

Go Phillies!
