Game 100: Phillies at Astros, July 26, 2005

New, comments

This is it, the big game, the one for all the marbles, that's right, the 101st game of the year. Will you remember where you were when Jon Lieber toed the rubber against Roy Oswalt?

Actually, it's just a game. A nice game to win, especially with Clemens coming tomorrow, but if the astute baseball fan hasn't learned that it's a long season by now, he or she never will.

Lineups (please excuse the poor formatting, not all of us are HTML whizzes)

Utley 2B

Berkman LF
Ensberg 3B

Gosh the Astros lineup is really awful (Biggio's performance last night notwithstanding). I wonder if intentionally walking Berkman AND Ensberg consecutively would be wise.
