Washington Nationals (34-35) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (34-37) Ross Detwiler (2-4, 3.02) vs. Cliff Lee (8-2, 2.55) TIME: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park TV: CSN WEATHER: 70, rain MEDIA: Facebook or Twitter After a walkoff win by Domonic Brown yesterday, more good news. Carlos Ruiz is back. But more bad news, too. The rain is staying, the game is delayed to start, and the showers will likely last all evening. They should play ball tonight. Some things: Cliff Lee hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in a game since May 1. The Nationals are 27th in MLB in runs scored. Good math. Ben Revere is batting .324 since may 1, third among all centerfielders behind only Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen. Nice. Lineup: Revere CF, Young 3B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, D. Young RF, Frandsen 2B, Ruiz C, Lee P Gameday Beer: Loser Pale Ale Funny name, and maybe not apropo after last nights victory. However, this beer is quite tasty. I had a bottle over the weekend, and while it’s not my favorite, it’s definitely one I’ll try again. Loser is made by Elysian. Says one beer advocate commenter: Overall: In basketball players who don’t really fit into any one position but can do a few different things well enough are known as “tweeners” and this is a tweener beer. The Andre Iguadola of beers perhaps? Nice.  -PG GO PHILLIES!
