The Phillies have some great timing.

Someone please tell Antonio Bastardo to trim his beard, because what he has going on right now is kind of gross.

Oh well. That's all you can say about last night, really. The Phillies had a lead, lost it, and then rolfed up a bunch of runs. Or, Antonio Bastardo rolfed up a bunch of runs. Four days before the trade deadline. I mean, that is some timing right there.

Today's Lineups

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Ender Inciarte - CF Ben Revere - CF
David Peralta - LF Jimmy Rollins - SS
Paul Goldschmidt - 1B Chase Utley - 2B
Miguel Montero - C Ryan Howard - 1B
Martin Prado - 3B Marlon Byrd - RF
Gerardo Parra - RF Darin Ruf - LF
Didi Gregorius - 2B Cody Asche - 3B
Nick Ahmed - SS Wil Nieves - C
Vidal Nuno - LHP Roberto Hernandez - RHP

Ryan Howard's back in the lineup for the second game in a row, and at cleanup. Roberto Hernandez on the mound, facing off against Vidal Nuno, whose name sounds like the character from a romance novel. "The Rogue's Bargain"!

Come up with a plot for "The Rogue's Bargain" (and discuss the game) in the comments below.
