Let’s hope tonight is a little less exciting than last night.

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies
BRICK!
Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Well, last night was certainly full of drama! Throwing, yelling, warnings, and an ejection. Last night’s game had it all!

Well, everything but a win.

Hopefully the Phillies will correct that tonight, so let’s get to the lineups.

Today's Lineups

NEW YORK METS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Curtis Granderson - CF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Asdrubal Cabrera - SS Howie Kendrick - LF
Yoenis Cespedes - LF Odubel Herrera - CF
Jay Bruce - RF Maikel Franco - 3B
Neil Walker - 2B Michael Saunders - RF
Lucas Duda - 1B Tommy Joseph - 1B
Jose Reyes - 3B Cameron Rupp - C
Travis d'Arnaud - C Freddy Galvis - SS
Matt Harvey - RHP Clay Buchholz - RHP

Ohhhhhh godddddddddd, Clay Buchholz is pitching. He is the guy I’m always going to dread seeing in the lineup. Until they release him and promote Zach Eflin, that is. (Let’s not pretend that isn’t coming, because I bet it is.)

I’m trying to find a reason to look forward to a Clay Buchholz start and I haven’t found one yet. But maybe tonight he’ll give me one.

Discuss the game in the comments below.
