Please don't get swept today, Phillies. Please.

Let's not beat around the bush. The most important things about today's game are:

  • That the Phillies not get swept
  • That Cole Hamels pitch well

That's it. That's all! This is one game. Just one game! Win this one game, Phillies. Who will be the boots on the ground for this mission? Let's see today's lineup.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES PITTSBURGH PIRATES
Ben Revere - CF Josh Harrison - 2B
Jeff Francoeur - LF Starling Marte - LF
Chase Utley - 2B Andrew McCutchen - CF
Ryan Howard - 1B Jung-Ho Kang - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B Sean Rodriguez - RF
Domonic Brown - RF Francisco Cervelli - C
Freddy Galvis - SS Corey Hart - 1B
Carlos Ruiz - C Jordy Mercer - SS
Cole Hamels - LHP A.J. Burnett - RHP


Well, Domonic Brown is back! That's a thing! Who knows, maybe it'll help. At this point, anything could. Voodoo? Spa day? A showing of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?" Now that the Phillies have finally brought up Domonic Brown, they should be open to any and all ideas.
