The losing streak has to end tonight. If it doesn't, the Marlins sweep the Phillies and I don't care how bad the Phillies are, I cannot accept that. Don't make me live in that world, Phillies.

This is the lineup they're fielding tonight:

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES MIAMI MARLINS
Ben Revere - CF C. Yelich - LF
Jimmy Rollins - SS Ed Lucas - SS
Chase Utley - 2B G. Stanton - RF
Ryan Howard - 1B Casey McGehee - 3B
Marlon Byrd - RF Garrett Jones - 1B
Cesar Hernandez - 3B J. Saltalamacchia - C
Aaron Altherr - LF Marcell Ozuna - CF
Cameron Rupp - C Donovan Solano - 2B
Kyle Kendrick - RHP Brad Hand - LHP

Aaron Altherr is getting his first ever start, so good luck to him. And I do mean good luck, because he'll need it. The offense is pretty stinky right now, but, um, at least there's nowhere to go but up! Theoretically. I'm sure there's more room for them to bottom out. But I think I'd rather that not happen, so why don't we all pretend this is bottom, and maybe they'll have no choice but to start climbing back toward the light.
