There are eight games left, and eight is a really great rhyming word. I can't stop thinking about (or singing) this classic Sesame Street video. It's so great. (Like the number eight!)

And now, for the lineup.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES OAKLAND A'S
Ben Revere - CF Sam Fuld - CF
Maikel Franco - 1B Stephen Vogt - 1B
Chase Utley - 2B Josh Donaldson - 3B
Ryan Howard - DH Adam Dunn - DH
Marlon Byrd - RF Brandon Moss - LF
Darin Ruf - LF Josh Reddick - RF
Cody Asche - 3B Jed Lowrie - SS
Wil Nieves - C Derek Norris - C
Freddy Galvis - SS Eric Sogard - 2B

Jerome Williams will take on Drew Pomeranz. Willliams has been pitching beyond his abilities for most of his time with the Phillies, and Pomeranz has been pretty good this season. What will happen? Tune in to find out!
