Now your loving man has gone, CC Rider: Phillies at Yankees Game Thread, May 24, 2009

New, 224 comments

Probably still shellshocked after yesterday's ninth inning collapse, the Phillies play the rubber match of their three game set against the Yankees this afternoon in the Bronx.

On paper, it promises to be the pitching matchup of the young season, with World Series MVP Cole Hamels facing off against 2008 NLDS Game 2 loser and Shane Victorino enthusiast CC Sabathia for the Yankees.

Chase Utley gets the day off against the lefty, with Eric Bruntlett starting at second base. Raul Ibanez will DH again, with erstwhile hero John Mayberry, Jr. and Jayson Werth in right and left fields, respectively.

A win here would be huge and would erase most of the bad taste left by yesterday's Brad Lidge meltdown.

Discuss the game below.
