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.
|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.
