Philadelphia Phillies (54-63) at Milwaukee Brewers (53-64)

Cole Hamels (13-6, 2.91) vs. Mike Fiers (6-5, 2.63)

Time: 7:10, Miller Park
TV: CSN
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 70
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The Phillies dropped two straight to the Brewers, and will look to end their three-game losing streak.  The bullpen has been the problem for the Phillies in the last two games, but the Phillies haven’t needed the bullpen in Cole Hamels’ last couple starts.  Hamels has been on a roll recently, throwing two consecutive complete game shutouts.  Last year, Cliff Lee tossed three complete game shutouts, as Cole will try to match that tonight.

The Phillies will face rookie Mike Fiers, who has had a great start to his young career.  Fiers is coming off one of his worst outings, however.  The goal for the Phillies offense is to get to the bullpen.  Like the Phillies, the Brewers have had bullpen issues this year.

Your gameday beer: Yards Love Stout
Anything from Yards is a friend of mine. They just make damn good beers. My favorite is Yards ESA, but this Love Stout is intriguing. It’s a very dark beer with a dark head that has a chocolate and coffee aroma. For you java lovers, this could be gold. For those who enjoy Guinness, it’s right up there in taste and color, no lie. If your in Philly, get down to the Yards brewery on Columbus Blvd and order a grilled cheese with one of these and enjoy. -Pat Gallen
