Tonight’s pitching matchup: Kyle Kendrick (puke) vs. Edwin Jackson
Kendrick is coming off one of the best starts of his career last time out in Milwaukee. He went 8 shutout innings and the Brewers just couldn’t seem to solve him. His sinker was on (for a change) and he was getting a lot of groundballs. Tonight he faces a much tougher matchup though in the Nats. The Nats have been rolling, coming off a series win against the Braves and they are starting to run away with the East.
I really want to see the Phillies finish the year against these guys strong. Let them know that the Phillies are coming back next year and that it’s not going to be so easy in 2013.
Sorry the preview is abbreviated today, but I’m busy today.
