Mmmmm, losing. It feels so familiar! Just like that time before the All-Star break. And the time before that. And... all the other times, too.

But hey! Cole Hamels is pitching today! That's good news! I love Cole Hamels. Even though the Phillies don't score for Hamels when he's on the mound, you at least know that you're going to get good pitching and a chance to win. So there's that.

Here's the rest of the lineup:
