Game 119 Open Thread: Mets at Phillies

Get away from me, Mets.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies are STILL playing the Mets for some reason. At least today, for the last game of a four-game set, they're being considerate and playing early.


Today's Lineups

Curtis Granderson - RF Ben Revere - CF
Daniel Murphy - 2B Jimmy Rollins - SS
David Wright - 3B Marlon Byrd - RF
Lucas Duda - 1B Ryan Howard - 1B
Juan Lagares - CF Carlos Ruiz - C
Matt den Dekker - LF Darin Ruf - LF
Wilmer Flores - SS Andres Blanco - 2B
Anthony Recker - C Cody Asche - 3B
Jon Niese - LHP David Buchanan - RHP

Chase Utley, despite being red hot on this homestand, is taking a routine day off. Well, I'm going to guess he's not "taking" the day off as much as he's being forced to not play. Domonic Brown is sitting in favor of Darin Ruf, who could use a few at-bats.

After today, the Phillies play the Mets for just one more series -- three games in Queens at the end of the month. Yay.
