PITCHING MATCHUP:

Cliff Lee (6-5, 3.41 ERA)

PHILLIES: The Phillies have been sick, sick, sick lately. A win today would give them a four-game series sweep over the Marlins and put them on a seven-game winning streak before going out west for some interleague play. The team’s bats have seemingly come alive after a stretch where some claimed the sky was falling. This team has been great to watch, lately. They’re the feel good hit of the summer.

Javier Vazquez

Javy Jazquez (3-6, 7.09 ERA)

MARLINS: The Fish have been turning on the screw lately; losing 9 of their last 10 games. No one knows what you’ll get out of Javier; he’s had a no-decision and a loss in his two other starts against the team. The Marlins were off to a hot start, and realistically this is a team that could get back in the NL East picture if only they could string together some wins.

Uhhhh… 3′s & 7′s.

PITCHING MATCHUPS:

Kyle Kendrick (3-4 3.47 ERA)

PHILLIES: I had tickets to this game when it got rained out the first time. That night Roy Halladay was supposed to pitch. Now I’m stuck with Kendrick. Seriously bad luck.

Elih Villanueva (0-0) 0.00 ERA

MARLINS: When you say his first name it sounds like you are sneezing.

Roy Halladay (9-3) 2.39 ERA

PHILLIES: So instead of whining about it, I bought tickets to the night game too.

Anibal Sanchez (6-1) 3.06 ERA

MARLINS: No that’s not Anibal Sanchez. But I Googled his name and a picture of Jamie Moyer showed up and it made me kinda miss him.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Colbert Michael Hamels (8-2, 2.58 ERA)

PHILLIES: Do me a favor: if you see Marcus Hayes in the next couple of days, smack him upside the head. My man Swift said on Twitter this evening that Hayes suggested Hamels pitch out of the bullpen come playoff time. That’s… mindblowingly retarded. Hamels has been phenomenal so far this season. As we close in on the all-star break, he’s at the forefront of the NL  Cy Young picture. What on Earth wouldn’t you want this dude taking the mound come playoff time?

Chris Volstad (2-6, 5.51 ERA)

MARLINS: Volstad’s a bit of a GILF, but I bet he makes a mean mac-and-cheese casserole. Aside from that, the Fish have activated Hanley Ramirez from the 15-day DL and he’ll be starting and batting leadoff tonight. Adjust your fantasy roster accordingly.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Cliff Lee (2-3) 3.69 ERA

PHILLIES: The last time Clifton pitched he had 16 K’s but still managed to lose because the Phillies offense /Cole Hamels’d him yet again. It’s been a while since he’s gotten a W so hopefully he gets one tonight. In 46.1 IP this year so far he has 60 K’s and 7 walks. Ridiculous.

Ricky Nolasco (3-0) 3.23 ERA

MARLINS: What does some Adrian Brody looking guy pointing at you have to do with Ricky Nolasco other than the picture saying “Nolasco”? Nothing. I googled Nolasco and that came up. I just got home from work and had to rush to put this together. I rushed this so much that I originally posted it with Anibal Sanchez as the opposing pitcher and didn’t notice until that first comment. At least I’m honest. I’ll make it up to you, promise.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Roy Halladay (5-1) 2.19 ERA

PHILLIES: Well it’s been almost a year now, when Halladay and Johnson matched up and Halladay threw a perfect game. It’s funny to say that the perfect game held more weight than a normal perfect game but it was during a time when the Phils just were not playing good. That is not the case this time but we don’t have Cameron Maybin on the Marlins this time to commit an error for us to score even 1 run off Josh Johnson. Buckle in, this is gonna be one hell of a pitching matchup.

Josh Johnson (3-1) 1.68 ERA

MARLINS: Not even gonna rip on the guy, he’s just good. He asked Roy Halladay for his permission to watch his bullpen session when the Marlins were in Philly. So not only is he good, he’s smart.

The Phils picked up their tenth win of the season with a little help from the elements, downing the Florida Fish 3-2. A stiff breeze to right gave Placido Polanco his first homer of the season in the first, and the sun contributed to the fan-favorite and newly retired Logan Morrison dropping a Ryan Howard fly-ball in the eighth. Carlos Ruiz (the baseball playing one) would eventually score Howard on a sac-fly, which would end up being the difference maker in this one.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Cole Hamels (1-1) 5.59 ERA

PHILLIES: Cole destroyed the Braves his last time out and I think he’ll do the same to the Fish today. I was gonna say the mantra of this season seems to be lose game 1 of a series and then win the next two but with the rain out that doesn’t really matter. Also the Phillies are 2-0 when I do the game threads this year. That’s sabermetrics at work folks. So, Ryan can GTFO.

Anibal Sanchez (0-1 6.97 ERA)

MARLINS: I’d really like to take this time to point out what a dumb name “Anibal” is. The name evokes several images in my head, one being of animalities when Mortal Kombat really started to get stupid, and another is all the things that must go through Chris Wheeler’s head when he says the name. Also I don’t like how excited Wheels gets when he says the name. Basically everything about his name pisses me off. Also Cole Hamels brought a bigger gun to this pitching matchup preview so the winner is obvious.

Thanks to James Fayleez for the pitching matchup pictures.

Well, the game started off good. The Phils scored 2 runs in the first thanks to a walk by Victorino(Yes apparently someone on the team hasn’t forgotten how to take a walk), a double by Rollins, sac fly by Howard, and a 2 out single by Raul. From there everything pretty much went to shit.

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Cole Hamels (9-10) 3.18 ERA

PHILLIES: Cole Hamels hasn’t allowed a run in his last two starts. This is because he has adapted to the Phillies offense continually sucking nuts while he is pitching. If he has to wear the doggy backpack to pitch a scoreless game he will because he is fucking dedicated.

Andrew Miller (1-0) 3.60 ERA

MARLINS: That probably isn’t the Andrew Miller that is pitching tonight but this came up when I google’d his name. Let me check, brb. Nope, this is Andrew Miller from America’s Youth Theater Community. He once performed at the Cox theater, which is no surprise. Anyway he probably has as good a chance at beating the Phillies tonight as the Andrew Miller who is actually pitching does.
