Gameday: Phillies (7-9) at Diamondbacks (8-8)

Philadelphia Phillies (7-9) at Arizona Diamondbacks (8-8)

Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 1.93) vs Wade Miley (1-0, 3.12)

Time: 9:40 PM, Chase Field
Weather: N/A
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The scheduled starters for tonight would have been Cliff Lee for the Phils and Daniel Hudson for the D-Backs. Two pitchers that can throw up a bunch of zeros on the scoreboard on any given night. And with the way the both offenses have been playing recently, there might have been a whole lotta zeros between the two teams.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), both Lee and Hudson won’t make their starts tonight, and will be replaced by Kyle Kendrick and Wade Miley.

Kendrick hasn’t faced the hitters on the D-Backs all that much, but one guy that has owned him so far is Miguel Montero. He’s 4-6 with a double and a home run off Kendrick. The Phillies righty has also had struggles in Arizona, where he’s given up eighteen hits and eight runs over 13 innings at Chase Field. However, we should expect a different Kyle Kendrick on the mound tonight, as he’s been very solid for the Phillies ever since the beginning of last year.

Tonight will be the first time Wade Miley will face the Phillies, and he’s coming off a performance against Atlanta where he gave up three runs in less than two innings. Before that, he had pitched seven scoreless. He’s a young lefty, which means the Phillies could struggle against him a great deal, especially with the way the offense has been playing.

Lineup: Pierre LF, Polanco 3B, Rollins SS, Wigginton 1B, Victorino CF, Ruiz C, Mayberry RF, Galvis 2B, Kendrick P

Orval Trappist AleYour Gameday Beer – Orval Trappist Ale

I’ve said it before, monks know how to brew beers and this Belgian Pale Ale is no exception. First it hits you with a apple/pear scent then a complex taste of citrus, caramel, and earthy yeast – all in a creamy buttery consistency. Wow. I hear it goes well with Thai food, but this is certainly one you can drink alone. – By Brian
