Mackanin: still winless.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

After today's 1:05 start, the Phillies and Nationals will face off again today for the nightcap. Severino Gonzalez has been called up to start for the Phillies. I'm not sure if we should be thankful for that extra man rule for doubleheaders, since it's Severino Gonzalez we're getting, but let's just go with it. Tanner Roark, who is stuck in the bullpen for the Nationals but could be the number 2 or 3 starter on the Phillies, is pitching for the Nats.

Pete Mackanin is still looking for his first managerial win with the Phillies. Hopefully he'll find it today. Or the players will find it for him.
