The last time he faced the Phils was in June of 2010 and he gave up 6 runs over 3.1 innings before he was pulled–statistically one of his worst starts of the year.

Your Gameday Beer – Coors Light

Tap the Rockies today on this very warm, slightly humid afternoon. I’ve grown to take Coors for what it is, the best of the Big 3. It’s not going to wow you, but it will cool you off and sort of refresh you. On taste alone, St. Bernardus 12, it ain’t. But if you’re at CBP and in need a refresher, you could do worse, I think. It’s Coors, and it won’t kill you. Enjoy the game.  -By Pat
