Gamenight: Phillies (64-56) At Dodgers (61-59)

Avoiding a four-game sweep in Los Angeles won’t be easy, but Brett Myers has been a stud since returning from the minor leagues. He’ll need to pitch well to give the Phils a big win tonight (especially with the Mets taking care of Washington).

Hiroki’s Year: The Phillies were courting Hiroki Kuroda before he landed with the Dodgers. This season for the Blue, he is 6-8 with an ERA just over 4.00. He would’ve slid into the No. 3 role nicely in Philadelphia. This will be the first time the Phils have faced Kuroda.

Big Man Brett: Brett Myers is 2-0 with a 2.10 ERA since re-joining the Phillies. His last start was a fantastic start against the Pirates, and we all remember what happened when he was pulled.

Pat Pushing It: Pat Burrell has just two hits in his last eight games.

Victorino Out: Shane Victorino isn’t in the lineup again tonight.

Phillies: Brett Myers (5-9) 5.09 ERA
Dodgers: Hiroki Kuroda (6-8) 4.02 ERA

Gametime: 10:10 p.m. EST
Weather: 81, fair
Lineup: Rollins/Werth/Utley/Howard/Burrell/Jenkins/Coste/Bruntlett/Myers

Your gamenight beer: Rick recommends Sawtooth Ale from Left Hand Brewery in Colorado. An Extra Strong Bitter ale, it supposedly contains a nice whiff of caramel. I can dig that. Eat some spicy Indian food with this bitter, but delicious brew.

Go Phillies!
