In the last home game of the season, the Phillies hope Tyler Cloyd will perform at least marginally better than Kyle Kendrick did last night, because they'll need every chance against Gio Gonzalez.
Darin Ruf is getting the start in left field for the third night in a row. Chooch has the night off, and Erik Kratz is starting in his place.
The innings we have left together are so few, and getting fewer all the time. Let us be merry in the comments below, and not think of such depressing things.
