Gameday: Phillies (73-73) at Astros (47-99)

Philadelphia Phillies (73-73) at Houston Astros (47-99)

Roy Halladay (10-7, 4.01) vs. Jordan Lyles (4-11, 5.33)

Time: 2:05 p.m at Minute Maid Park
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The Phillies can’t afford to lose this one.  This series has been fairly disappointing for the Phillies, as they had a chance to gain ground in the Wild Card.  Luckily, the Cardinals lost yesterday so the Phillies remain three games out of the Wild Card.  The Astros have a history of beating up on the Phillies during a crucial part of the season, and they’ve done so thus far.  The Phillies need to give the Astros their 100th loss, and split the series.

The Phillies will be facing another pitcher with a terrible season ERA (Jordan Lyles), however that seems to be who they struggle against the most.

Your gameday beer: Today, grab a RedHook Blonde Ale. It’s citrusy but not too much, and it goes down pretty smooth. To eat, have some pasta tossed in olive oil and mushrooms, topped by formaggio. — By Tim
