Jamie Moyer takes the hill tonight against the Reds. In his last three starts, Moyer is 3-0 with a 3.11 earned run average. Moyer faced the Reds earlier this season and gave up three runs over six innings.

Micah Owings will start for Cincinnati. He is 2-1 with a 4.13 ERA in his career against the Phillies. He was rocked in his last start against the Phillies; five earned runs in three innings. Chase Utley is 5-for-10 with a home run and Greg Dobbs has two career home runs against Owings.

The Phillies have scored only six runs since their 22 run outburst. With Moyer on the mound, three runs may not cut it. They have a good chance against Owings, but run support is key for Moyer. With a win, the Phillies will take 3 of 4 from the Reds.

Tonight’s lineup: Rollins (SS)/Victorino (CF)/ Utley (2B)/ Howard (1B)/ Werth (RF)/ Dobbs (LF)/ Feliz (3B) /Ruiz (C)/ Moyer (P)

Your Gameday Beer: Kalik. This is the King of Beers in the Bahamas. The brew was designed by Heineken for the Commonwealth Brewery based on the tastes of the islanders. As you can imagine, it has all the qualities of an ice-cold Bud or Corona – fizzy, yellow, and way too easy to drink on a hot summer day. Fortunately you can find the beer in America and even at some supermarkets. Make some fancy mac-n-cheese with ham or bacon in it. -By Brian
