The Phillies look to take the series win today against the Diamondbacks, as they send Cliff Lee out on the mound. I think it’s safe to say that Lee won’t have to worry about any of the trade rumors that have been swirling. Ruben Amaro Jr. came out and stated that Lee “isn’t going anywhere”, and I believe him.

Lee is coming off one of his best starts of 2012, where he threw seven innings of shutout baseball on Tuesday against the Nationals.

Trevor Cahill will be on the mound for the D-Backs. Back on April 25, he allowed four runs in 5.1 innings in a 7-2 loss to the Phils.

Jimmy Rollins streak of 62 straight games started is over, as he gets the day off today after getting scratched from the original lineup.

Lineup: Schierholtz RF, Frandsen 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Mayberry CF, Brown LF, Kratz C, Martinez SS, Lee P

Philadelphia Original LagerBrewed by Red Bell Brewery out of the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia, this beer is a classic microbrew lager. It’s a bit heavier than Yuengling, with more of a roasted malt flavor and some sweet coffee and caramel hints. Its supreme drinkability coupled with a pour that looks like iced tea means you can sneakily house several of these bad boys. Have your favorite pasta with some marinara sauce and a few Philly Lagers. – By Brian
