Eagles Fan Shows Her Spirit

Eagles Fan Shows Her Spirit

The Phillies tried to roll out their idea for a "Goosebumps" marketing campaign before this season began.  We were unimpressed and scared.  On the other side of Pattison Ave, the Eagles appear to be giving their fans more than just goosebumps.

These photos were added to The 700 Level's flickr group last week and I decided to email the flickr user to get a better idea for the inspiration behind the photos.  The photographer, Cheryl, is a body painter.  Her subject -- and the huge Eagles fan -- is Pam.  We tracked Pam down for some questions.

The700Level: What was the inspiration behind this paint job? And why Kearse, he seems like an unlikely choice?

Pam: I wish I had some interesting inspiration as to why I chose to do this.
It's as simple as catching up with a friend! Also, being painted feels
awesome! It's almost therapeutic! I originally was planning on her
doing McNabb, buuuut, she talked me out of it! I don't mind supporting
Kearse, he never seems to let me down week to week.

T7L: Did you wear this in public or to the local bar on game day? Get any good reactions?  I'd think you'd be quite popular.

Pam: I don't go out in public painted either. Those pictures were taken at
Cheryl's house. I don't think I could do it to be honest! I am
comfortable with my body, but I am not comfortable with the sexual
attention I'm sure I would receive. Maybe for some great seats at a
game I could do it! I have never been to an Eagles game believe it or
not. Being a full-time students, funds are tight and I usually sit at
home with a friend and order in.

T7L: Was this a one time thing or do you plan to make this some sort of Sunday tradition?

Pam: This painting was only done once. Cheryl wanted the practice and I'm
always a willing volunteer. Don't think it's going to become a Sunday
tradition because it's very time consuming! Maybe I'll show some more
Philly pride when the Flyers start up!

T7L: Somebody get this nice young lady tickets to an Eagles game, pronto.

Thanks to Pam for the Q&A.  Her myspace can be found here.  And for the record, she predicts the Eagles will win by a David Akers field goal tonight against the 'Skins.

Instant Replay: Phillies 9, Astros 0

BOX SCORE

Aaron Nola pitched another beauty and batterymate Cameron Rupp smacked a pair of two-run homers to lift the Phillies to a 9-0 win over the powerful Houston Astros at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night.

The Astros entered the ballgame averaging a majors-best 7.9 runs in 19 games in July and they had outscored the Phillies, 18-4, in winning the first two games of the series. Nola held them scoreless for six innings.

The Phillies are 35-64.

Houston has the best record in the American League at 67-34.

Starting pitching report
Nola (8-6) held the Astros to four hits over six shutout innings. He walked one and struck out 10, a career high.

Over his last seven starts, Nola is 5-1 with a 1.49 ERA. He has struck out 60 batters in that span and walked just 14. Opponents have hit just .189.

Houston right-hander Mike Fiers (7-5) gave up five hits and three runs over four innings.

Bullpen report
Luis Garcia, Joaquin Benoit and Hector Neris completed the shutout for the Phillies.

Houston right-hander Michael Feliz was hit hard. He gave up eight hits, including two homers, and six runs in two innings of work.

At the plate
Rupp became the first Phillies catcher since Mike Lieberthal in 2006 to hit two homers in a game. Maikel Franco clubbed his 15th homer. Tommy Joseph doubled twice, singled and walked.

Houston hit machine Jose Altuve had a pair of hits, raising his hitting streak to 18 games. He leads the majors in hitting at .365.

Health check
Trade candidate Howie Kendrick left the game with soreness in his left hand. He was hit by a pitch. It's unclear how that will affect his trade status. The Phillies might have to wait until after Monday's non-waiver trade deadline to deal him. Players traded after Monday must first clear waivers.

Reliever Pat Neshek is the Phillie most likely to be dealt before the deadline. The Phils have received extensive interest in him.

Transaction
The Phillies placed Daniel Nava on the disabled list and activated Aaron Altherr from the DL. Altherr started in center field in place of Odubel Herrera, who was not benched (see story).

Up next
The Phillies are off on Thursday. They host the Atlanta Braves in a four-game series beginning on Friday night. Here are the pitching matchups:

Friday night -- RHP Jeremy Hellickson (6-5, 4.73) vs. RHP Julio Teheran (7-8, 4.76)

Saturday night -- RHP Jerad Eickhoff (2-7, 4.71) vs. LHP Sean Newcomb (1-5, 4.81)

Sunday afternoon -- RHP Vince Velasquez (2-6, 5.49) vs. RHP R.A. Dickey (6-7, 4.31)

Monday afternoon -- RHP Nick Pivetta (3-6, 5.73) vs. RHP Mike Foltynewicz (9-5, 3.82).
