Gamenight: Pirates (52-62) At Phillies (62-52)

After another series loss to the Marlins, the Phillies will try to pick it up against their bizarro selves, the 52-62 Pirates.

Here We Go Again: Need a reason not to watch this game? Paul Maholm pitches for the Pirates tonight. Remember him? He let up one run on two hits in a complete game win against the Phils in April. That game, oddly enough, was played after the worst day of my young life. So it can only get better, right?

Stepping Up: Chase Utley is carrying a 12-game hitting streak, during which he has hit three homers and driven in seven.

Bucc You: The Phillies are 16-12 against the Pirates since 2003.

See Sammy: Juan Samuel will be inducted into the Phillies Wall of Fame tonight.

Phillies: Joe Blanton (6-12) 4.94 ERA
Pirates: Paul Maholm (7-7) 3.95 ERA

Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 77, partly cloudy
Lineup: Rollins/Victorino/Utley/Howard/Burrell/Werth/Coste/Bruntlett/Blanton

Iron City BeerYour gameday beer:  In honor the Phillies cross-state rivals, tonight we’re serving up some Iron City Brew.  The beer has been made since 1861, but it is know for being one of the first beers to be available in an aluminum bottle –  apparently that keeps the beer cold 50 minutes longer than a can.  Like Bud, Iron City is best served ice cold, have it with kielbasa.

Go Phillies!
