Philadelphia Phillies (36-42) at Miami Marlins (35-40)

Cliff Lee (0-4, 3.72) vs. Josh Johnson (4-5, 3.96)

TIME: 7:05, Marlins Park
TV: CSN
Weather: Lower 80′s, mostly sunny
Media: Twitter and Facebook

After splitting a four game series with the Pirates, the Phillies head down to Miami tonight to take on the Marlins. Cliff Lee will look for his first win of the year yet again, but he’ll have a tough time, as he opposes the Marlins Ace Josh Johnson.

Lee is 2-0 with a 2.31 ERA against the Marlins in his career, but just 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA in Florida. The last time he faced the Marlins, he threw a complete game while giving up just one run and striking out twelve.

As for Johnson, he’s 5-4 with a 3.68 ERA against the Phils over his career. He faced the Phillies back in April, and couldn’t get out of the fourth inning after giving up a season-high 11 hits and 6 earned runs. However, his ERA is under 4 again, and Johnson is a guy that has the ability to shut an offense down on any given night, just like Lee. I’m expecting a pitcher’s duel tonight, and hopefully Lee will get his first win of the year.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Pence RF, Victorino CF, Polanco 3B, Mayberry LF, Lee P


Your Gameday Beer – Allagash White
This is a really good beer that is fortunately becoming more widely available around the country. The White name lets you know it’s a Witbier – way better than the more ubiquitous Blue Moon or Hoegaarden. It has citrus wheat flavors along with some strong fall scents like pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg which make it a great late summer ale. It is refreshing and smooth and very enjoyable to drink. It pairs well with a sweet chicken dish like Hawaiian or teriyaki style. – By Brian
