The Phillies are three games behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the Wild Card.  The Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers won last night, meaning the Phillies gained a little ground.  The Phillies will try to give the Astros their 100th loss of the season tonight.

What else can we say about Kyle Kendrick?  He had a rough start to the year, but has been fantastic lately.  He hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.  In his last six starts, he is 5-1 with a 1.49 ERA.

While Kendrick is riding a hot streak, his counterpart is in the midst of a slump.  Dallas Keuchel won his Major League debut in June, but is 0-7 with a 6.35 ERA since.  He has a 1.54 WHIP and allows 9.7 hits per nine innings.  The Phillies were able to drive runners home last night with their offensive outburst, and they need to do the same tonight as the opposing pitcher gives up a lot of baserunners.

Two Jokers Double-WitYour Gameday Beer – Two Jokers Double-Wit
Two Jokers, from Missouri, is an excellent witbier brewed in the classic European style. The flavor embodies those tip-of-the-tongue spices like cloves, pepper, and coriander but is tempered by citrus accents. It’s a little creamier than a traditional wit, but its light body makes for easy drinking. I recommend it with a big salad topped with spicy salmon. – By Brian
