Last night was pretty awesome. It's not just me, right? Last night was awesome? That's what I think at least. Jerad Eickhoff was great, and so much fun to watch. In fact, the entire game was fun to watch! These Phillies still have problems, but they are having an absolute ball on the field.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES MIAMI MARLINS
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Dee Gordon - 2B
Andres Blanco - 3B Ichiro Suzuki - RF
Odubel Herrera - CF Martin Prado - 3B
Jeff Francoeur - RF Justin Bour - 1B
Aaron Altherr - LF Derek Dietrich - LF
Darin Ruf - 1B Marcell Ozuna - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS J.T. Realmuto - C
Carlos Ruiz - C Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Aaron Harang - RHP Justin Nicolino - LHP

It would be great if Aaron Harang could maybe not suck a little bit tonight. In the month of August, Harang has pitched 15 innings and racked up an ERA of 10.80 with 10 walks and 10 strikeouts. That's... not good. At all. So tonight's goal is for Harang to improve on that ERA. Hopefully that's not a tall order. But it probably is.
