Washington Nationals (34-34) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (33-37) Dan Haren (4-8, 5.70) vs. John Lannan (0-1, 6.14) TIME: 7:05 TV: CSN WEATHER: 78, partly cloudy, chance of rain MEDIA: Facebook or Twitter After a brutal road trip, the Phillies return to the bank and will face the Washington Nationals for the first time this season. They trail the Nationals by 2 games in the NL East and the Braves by 8.5 games. So, here is an opportunity for the Phillies to leapfrog back into second place. First place is clearly a different story… Ruben Amaro spoke to media and voiced his frustrations with the team, but also placed blame on himself. However, he gave the old cliche that they aren’t giving up and they aren’t blowing it up. The good news for the Phillies is that the Nationals have scored 237 runs, tied for the second fewest in baseball. The bad news is that the Phillies can’t really score enough to get past most teams, so it may not even matter. Lineup: Revere CF, Young 3B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, D. Young RF, Frandsen 2B, Quintero C, Hamels P Gameday Beer: Leinenkugel Summer Shandy You will undoubtedly be refreshed by this summer beer from Leinenkugel. Don’t let the haze of the pour keep you away, it’s got fruity notes that will tickle the taste buds. Yeah, I went there. I wouldn’t suggest drinking a whole six pack by yourself, but one or two of these will do the trick as an aside from your normal beer routine. -PG GO PHILLIES!
