St. Louis Cardinals (8-6) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (6-9) Adam Wainwright (2-1, 2.05) vs Cole Hamels (0-2, 7.56) Time: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park TV: MLB Network, The Comcast Network (Home of Phillies Nation TV) Weather: Cloudy, 60 Media: Twitter and Facebook John Lannan will miss roughly 6 weeks with a quad strain in his left leg, just above his knee. I spoke with Lannan around 3:30 pm, and he thought that he’d be back much sooner. But the word from Charlie Manuel is that the lefty will be out an extended period. The Phillies will make a corresponding move to bring a reliever up, then make a move Monday for a starter from Lehigh Valley. They’ll select from Jonathan Pettibone, Ethan Martin, or Tyler Cloyd, Ruben Amaro said today. He also mentioned Adam Morgan, but he’s least likely to be selected as he tossed 100 pitches today. Domonic Brown is OK; he had a x-rays on his back, which came back negative. Saw him out in the field shagging flies, and he looked fine. The lineup is in for some sizable changes tonight as well, as Freddy Galvis gets his first career start in the outfield in place of Brown. Ben Revere, who has an OBP of just .242 this season, slides all the way down to #7. Manuel is looking to spark his guys, while Amaro was visibly unhappy with their recent effort. After zero walks in the Reds series by the team on offense, he called it “ridiculous.” You can say that again. It doesn’t get easier tonight as they’ll deal with Adam Wainwright, who walks no one. Literally. He has zero walks in 22 innings. LINEUP: Rollins SS, Galvis LF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Young 3B, Mayberry RF, Revere CF, Kratz C, Hamels Your Gameday Beer – Sierra Nevada Torpedo If you like a strong IPA with a bittery taste and aroma to it, this is a must-taste. I’ve been on a huge Sierra kick lately, especially their Pale Ale. But the torpedo is a warhead for the senses. -Pat Gallen GO PHILS!
