It was certainly a busy day for anyone who doesn't like Ruben Amaro, and now we get to tune into the team we don't understand so they can play this mysterious game with balls and sticks.
It's the series' only night game, if that means anything to you. The struggling Jerome Williams will get the start for the Phillies, having logged a 6.00 ERA in his last three games to bring his overall number to 5.44 for the season. The ass-end of the fourth place Phillies' rotation will take on young, exciting, highly stylized Jacob deGrom. Since last season, deGrom has made three starts vs. the Phillies, allowing only three earned runs, 14 hits, and five walks while striking out 19.
