Game 18 Open Thread: Braves at Phillies

New, comments

The only solace I can take from this season is that the Braves are also really terrible.

Well, these Braves and Phillies sure are... baseball teams. They are definitely that. Baseball teams made up of players who do... baseball things.

Baseball! It's a game! Go sports!

Let's look at tonight's sport game assemblage.

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Nick Markakis - RF Ben Revere - LF
Andrelton Simmons - SS Odubel Herrera - CF
Freddie Freeman - 1B Chase Utley - 2B
A.J. Pierzynski - C Jeff Francoeur - RF
Jonny Gomes - LF Ryan Howard - 1B
Kelly Johnson - 3B Cody Asche - 3B
Jace Peterson - 2B Carlos Ruiz - C
Eric Young Jr. - CF Freddy Galvis - SS
Shelby Miller - RHP David Buchanan - RHP

Maybe tonight Chase Utley will break out of his slump. And maybe Carlos Ruiz will, too. But in the meantime, Freddy Galvis and Cody Asche are handling things just fine. David Buchanan's last start was an improvement, sort of, with three earned runs over five innings. Maybe he'll... not get worse! HIgh hopes people. Just like Harry said.
