Miami Marlins (63-78) at Philadelphia Phillies (69-71)

Wade LeBlanc (2-3, 2.72) vs. Kyle Kendrick (8-10, 3.96)

Time: 7:05 PM, Citizens Bank Park
TV: CSN
Weather: Mostly Sunny, 75
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The Phillies are coming off a huge sweep of the Colorado Rockies.  They’re six games out of the Wild Card, two games below .500, and 8-2 in their last 10 games.  The Phillies will play two last place teams in their next two series: the Marlins and the Astros.
The Phillies aren’t where we expected them to be, and some are counting them out, but for Phillies fans there is still that glimmer of hope.

I don’t know what has gotten into Kyle Kendrick, but he has been on a roll lately.  Since August 14, Krazy K is 4-1 with a 1.53 ERA.  He has 25 strikeouts and 4 walks during that span. Here’s another stat that Phillies Nation’s Corey Seidman tweeted: Kendrick is 5-0 with a 1.78 ERA in last six starts against the Marlins.

LINEUP: Rollins SS, Mayberry CF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Wigginton LF, Brown RF, Kratz C, Martinez 3B, Kendrick P

Your Gameday Beer: Innis and Gunn Rum Cask Oak Finish Beer

This excellent make from Innis and Gunn will knock your socks off. It’s not for the faint of heart at 7.4% ABV, but if you relax with a few you’ll enjoy it without the nasty hangover tomorrow. It has a deep red color with notes of fruit, spice, toffee, and oak. This beer was discovered accidentally – they set out to make an ale-flavored whiskey 2002 and instead came up with a Scottish beer. Funny how things work. - By Pat
