Game Thread: Phillies at Blue Jays 6/13/16

New, comments

Time for another home and home series, which I think is a dumb name for a series.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies are in a bit of a free fall. They just got swept by the Nationals, they lost the series to the Cubs, they split with the Brewers, and it goes on and on and on.

But the Blue Jays are just who the Phillies need to face to get back on track. Except the opposite of that is actually true.

ANYWAY. Let's get to the lineup.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES TORONTO BLUE JAYS
Odubel Herrera - CF Jose Bautista - DH
Freddy Galvis - SS Josh Donaldson - 3B
Andres Blanco - 3B Michael Saunders - LF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Justin Smoak - 1B
Ryan Howard - DH Kevin Pillar - CF
Carlos Ruiz - C Ezequiel Carrera - RF
Cody Asche - LF Darwin Barney - SS
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Devon Travis - 2B
Peter Bourjos - RF Josh Thole - C
Jerad Eickhoff - RHP R.A. Dickey - RHP

Jerad Eickhoff versus R.A. Dickey. STIFLE YOUR EXCITEMENT. Well actually, Eickhoff is in a bit of a groove. In two games in June, he has an 1.98 ERA. But Dickey can actually claim a better June ERA than Eickhoff, with 1.50.

So this could actually be a good game! Discuss it in the comments below.
