One More: Braves at Phillies Game Thread, July 8, 2012

New, 304 comments

This is the last game before the All-Star break, kiddos. And never has a team needed a break more than the 2012 Philadelphia Phillies. Shane Victorino has been scratched from the lineup, and after speculation that he was injured or traded, it was revealed that he was neither. Charlie Manuel made the decision to scratch him. Intriguing stuff, folks.

Vance Worley, who was not scratched, squares off against Jair Jurrjens, who has quite a few Js in his name.

Discuss the game below.
