Philadelphia Phillies (53-62) at Miami Marlins (52-64)

Kyle Kendrick (4-9, 4.86) vs. Josh Johnson (7-8, 3.88)

TIME: 7:10, Marlins Park
TV: CSN
Weather: Lower 80′s, mostly cloudy
Media: Twitter and Facebook

The Phillies haven’t won three straight games in almost three weeks. But they can do just that tonight as they are coming off their second straight win.

However, the bad news is that Kyle Kendrick (4-9, 4.86 ERA) is on the mound tonight, and his last outing was, let’s say, unspectacular. He gave up six earned runs, seven hits, and three walks to the Braves in less than four innings pitched. Ever since Joe Blanton was sent to the Dodgers, Kendrick, who took Blanton’s spot in the rotation, is 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA.

Josh Johnson (7-8, 3.88 ERA) will start for the Marlins, and he is pitching pretty well right now. He is 2-1 with a 1.75 ERA in his last four starts. However, the Phillies tagged him earlier this season in a 6-1 win, but the second time around, he allowed just one run. Methinks we will see the “good” Johnson tonight.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Brown RF, Mayberry CF, Frandsen 3B, Schneider C, Kendrick P

GAMEDAY BEER: Pilsner Urquell

This Czech pils is just strong enough and tasty, just the way I like my beer. It’s not quite as light as other lagers, but it has a crisp look to it. Don’t be pushed away by it’s slightly bitter aroma, it’ll go down smoother than you think. There will be a slight, slight aftertaste to it, but don’t be alarmed. It’s quite refreshing.  -By Pat
