Philadelphia Phillies (37-51) vs. Colorado Rockies (34-52)

Vance Worley (4-5, 3.54) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (3-8, 6.05)

Time: 8:10, Coors Field
TV: CSN
Weather:
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Vance Worley will try to get the Phillies their first win after the All Star break when he takes the mound tonight in Colorado. Though Worley has excellent career numbers against the Rockies (2.25 ERA), he’s never pitched at the notoriously pitcher-unfriendly Coors Field, which has a tendency to chew up young pitchers and spit them out. Can Vanimal handle the challenge of pitching in the thin air of the Rocky Mountains? We’ll find out tonight.

On the mound for the Rockies will be career-underachiever Jeremy Guthrie. Though Guthrie has never really lived up to his potential as a pitcher, he has had a field day in the ten innings he’s pitched against the Phillies, as his career 0.90 ERA when facing them indicates.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Victorino CF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Ruiz C, Pence RF, Pierre LF, Fontenot 3B, Worley P

Your Gameday Beer – Coors Original

In the spirit of this mile-high series, sip on a can of original Coors as you witness the Phillies hit the road. The “Banquet Beer,” as it’s known, is 5 percent ABV and is the oldest of the Coors beers. Buy a six-pack, eat some steak and potatoes with it, and be sure to dispose of the cans by stepping on them, just as the Phils will hopefully do to the Rockies tonight. – By Pat
