Just win one game against the Cardinals. Just one.

As much as it doesn't matter at this point if the Phillies win this game -- what will it really matter at the end of the season? -- my pride desperately wants them to. I just cannot bear the Phillies getting swept by the Cardinals at home. Other teams I wouldn't care so much about, but this is the Cardinals. The Cardinals. Remember 2011? REMEMBER!?!?!

Seriously, I hate the Cardinals.

On to today's lineup!
