The Phillies took a huge step backwards in Houston.  They had a chance to make up ground in the Wild Card, but dropped three out of four to the worst team in baseball.  The Phillies are back below the .500 mark and are four games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot.  Tonight, the Phillies head to New York and face a team that has beaten up on them all year.

Cliff Lee has a hot hand, going 3-0 with a 1.73 ERA in his last six starts.  Hopefully he can continue the hot streak, unlike Kyle Kendrick.  Lee will be opposed by R.A. Dickey, who will surely be in the Cy Young conversation this year.

As painful as the Astros series was, the season is not over.  The Phillies proved once that they aren’t dead, and they’ll have to do it again.

 Fire Island's Red Wagon IPAYour Gameday Beer – Fire Island’s Red Wagon IPA

Tonight’s selection comes to us from Fire Island, NY, that crazy place off Long Island where cars are prohibited. And it is this quirky phenomenon that give us the name of the beer since red wagons are what locals use to transport goods around the island. Ah, simple times call for a simple beer. This golden beer is balanced with floral and fruity hops and is perfect for a September evening. Have it with some grilled pork chops.
