Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins

Time: 1:10 PM, Marlins Park
TV: PHL17
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 80
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Just four games remain for the Phillies this year and they need this one if they want to make the push for a .500 season.

Funny how quickly things change. It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating a playoff berth, then a World Series title, then another trip to the Fall Classic. The Phillies have fallen on hard times, but it’s no time to abandon ship. Just remember you’ll be pining for baseball in about a month, so soak it all in now while you still can.

It will also be the final time you’ll see Cole Hamels on a mound until 2013. It’s a joy watching him pitch and I think I speak for many when I say it’ll be nice having him around for the long haul.

After last night’s long one in Miami, I’m sure the players will be swinging early and often, so watch for Hamels to go deep.

The tasty beverage is from Ohio but is available around the northeast and midwest, winning several brewing awards in the past ten years. The beer brings it at 6.5%, but is so tasty that you wont recognize the alcoholic content. Enjoy.- Pat Gallen
