St. Louis Cardinals (62-52) at Philadelphia Phillies (51-62)
Lance Lynn (13-5, 3.52) vs. Vance Worley (6-7, 3.83)
Lance Lynn may not be a big-name pitcher, but he is having himself a solid year. He averages a strikeout per inning. Lynn has been a little inconsistent lately, however. He has a 6.35 ERA in his last three starts. Lynn tends to have the most trouble in the first inning, but then settles down after.
Worely is coming off a terrible start against the Braves where he lasted just under four innings. Worley, like Lynn, has shown signs of inconsistency throughout the season. Overall, he is having a decent year, but he still hasn’t been as good as he was in 2011.
Your gameday beer: Time for a tasty treat. Get yourself an Indian Brown Ale, courtesy of Dogfish Head. It tastes of chocolate, raisins, molasses, all the good stuff. Dogfish Head has a brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, so if you’re bored this weekend, take a trip down and sip that good stuff. –By Tim
