Game 1: Tyler Chatwood (4-4, 5.53 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (14-6, 3.04)
Game 2: Drew Pomeranz (1-8, 4.93) vs. Tyler Cloyd (1-1, 2.77)
Because of strong storms, the Phillies-Rockies game was postponed on Saturday. We’ll have a split double-header on Sunday.
The Phillies enjoyed a nice come from behind victory on Friday. Despite the victory, the Phillies couldn’t do too much damage against a struggling pitcher. They will be facing pitchers today who have poor numbers: Tyler Chatwood and Drew Pomeranz.
Cole Hamels wasn’t his best in his last start, but he continues to have a terrific season. Hamels faced the Rockies on June 19 and pitched 8 strong innings, allowing just two runs.
Tyler Cloyd is off to a solid major league start. He earned his first major league win in last start. He has 14 strikeouts in 13 innings.
Your Gameday Beer – Birra Moretti
We’re going with an easy drinker. This Italian Pilsner has a crisp golden pour and similarly light flavor. It’s both bubbly and hoppy and since neither are overwhelming it makes for a nice party in your mouth. Keep it going with your favorite hoagie. – By Brian
