Jim Thome, Ryan Madson, Abraham Nunez and a commemorative beer can inside.

Welcome back, big Jim. Here’s a bat, and after Jimmy, Juan and Hunter go, you go.

Matt Gelb has it that Jim Thome is batting fourth for the Phils today in the first of their nine straight interleague games. So far this season, Thome is batting a cool .100 (2 for 20) with 11 strikeouts.
Gelb also has it that the last time the Phils played in Camden Yards back in 2006, starter Ryan Madson threw 8 2/3 innings. Here, for your intense enjoyment, is the box score from the Phils’ 4-0 Jun. 29 win. Okay, all together now:
Also, for those of you who made the trek down to Inner Harbor, be on the lookout for these 16 oz. Natty Boh commemorative cans celebrating the 20th anniversary of Oriole Park and bring us one back for our collection.
While you’re at it, have a few on us. We’ll, uh, hit you back later.
