Rodrigo Lopez was impressive in his Phillies debut. In 6.1 innings, he allowed only two runs on six hits and one walk. Lopez will look to duplicate that performance.
Homer Bailey is coming off one of the best starts of his career. He gave up two runs on three hits in 7.1 innings against the Cardinals. Bailey has walked 15 batters in 16.2 innings. The Phillies are going to need to take advantage of his command problems and take walks. The Phillies had no problem getting on base last night. Driving in runs was the problem. With the amount of baserunners that Bailey allows, the Phillies need to bring those runners home. Bailey has struggled against the Phillies in his career. He is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA.
Your Gameday Beer – Lord Chesterfield Ale
This is that red bottle you get when you buy a Yuengling sampler pack, but it’s also available in these classy cans. You could describe this pale ale as the Lager’s little brother – light in color and flavor and extra fizzy. It is named after Philip Stanhope (1694-1773) the 4th Earl of Chesterfield. It goes well with 10 cent wings. – By Brian
