Last night was pretty great, wasn't it? Home runs from Freddy Galvis and Ryan Howard (YES, IT'S TRUE, WOULD I LIE TO YOU), a Phillies win, AND a bomb from The Mighty Giancarlo Stanton. It had everything you could want!
Tonight, Cole Hamels faces off against former Phils prospect/"baby ace" Jarred Cosart, who was with the Astros between the Phillies and Marlins. Cosart's first start against the Rays was super, but his last start against the Mets ended in tears and five earned runs in just over five innings. Hamels is searching for consistency after two rocky starts and one good one. Let's hope he finds it.
On to the lineups!
|MIAMI MARLINS||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
|Dee Gordon - 2B||Odubel Herrera - CF|
|Martin Prado - 3B||Ben Revere - LF|
|Giancarlo Stanton - RF||Chase Utley - 2B|
|Mike Morse - 1B||Carlos Ruiz - C|
|Marcell Ozuna - CF||Cody Asche - 3B|
|J.T. Realmuto - C||Ryan Howard - 1B|
|Ichiro Suzuki - LF||Grady Sizemore - RF|
|Adeiny Hechavarria - SS||Freddy Galvis - SS|
|Jarred Cosart - RHP||Cole Hamels - LHP|
Ryan Howard's home run hasn't gotten him out of the 6-hole yet, nor has Freddy's gotten him out of the 8-spot. Maybe they'll hit more home runs tonight. Or maybe Ryne Sandberg has no idea what he's doing. IT'S A MYSTERY.
In other news, J.T. Realmuto is apparently a real player and not some kind of tragic keyboard accident.
