Philadelphia Phillies (10-14) at New York Mets (10-11) Jonathan Pettibone (0-0, 3.38) vs. Shaun Marcum (0-0, 0.00) TIME: 1:05, Citi Field TV: Fox Weather: 66, mostly sunny Media: Twitter and Facebook With last night’s victory, the Phillies have now won 7 of 8 games against the Mets, including four straight on the road. The 4-0 win displayed a lot of positives for the Phils, if only for a night. Kyle Kendrick dazzled in throwing a complete game shutout, while Ryan Howard showed a little power, something fans have been waiting for him to do. Howard may have an opportunity to continue his power display today, as he has gone 4-for-8 lifetime against Mets starter, Shaun Marcum. Three of those four hits have been home runs. Marcum is making his 2013 debut after spending time on the DL with a sore neck. Injuries have long been an issue for Marcum, who only started 21 games for the Brewers last year while plagued with an elbow injury. In five career starts against the Phillies, Marcum is 2-1 with a 3.51 ERA. Rookie Jonathan Pettibone will toe the rubber for the Phils. In his Major League debut, starting in place of the injured John Lannan, Pettibone impressed, throwing 5.1 innings, while allowing two runs and striking out six. The six strikeouts were the most for a Phillies starter in his MLB debut since Cole Hamels did it back in 2006. Aside from Humberto Quintero starting in place of Erik Kratz, the Phillies lineup remains the same. That means Ben Revere is not starting for the third straight game. Lineup: Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Young 3B, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Mayberry CF, Nix RF, Quintero C, Pettibone P Your gameday beer: Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale For my money, there is no better beer for a Spring day than a pale ale, and Sierra Nevada’s version of the classic brew delivers. It’s nothing more than a basic pale ale, but it has a rich, consistent hoppy flavor, while maintaining a refreshing quality often lost in stronger versions of the brew. It goes down easily, and is the perfect beer for someone just beginning to experiment with pale ales, or a seasoned drinker looking for a smooth beer on a beautiful afternoon. Complete your lunch with an open-faced Turkey Ruben sandwich.  –By RD Go Phillies!
