Today is a special day, for today is Jackie Robinson Day. 70 years ago today, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball. Today, all players wear the number 42, which is a touching tribute that’s worth the confusion we all feel when trying to figure out just who is who on the field.
And now, the lineups.
|PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES||WASHINGTON NATIONALS|
|Cesar Hernandez - 2B||Wilmer Difo - SS|
|Howie Kendrick - LF||Anthony Rendon - 3B|
|Odubel Herrera - CF||Bryce Harper - RF|
|Maikel Franco - 3B||Daniel Murphy - 2B|
|Michael Saunders - RF||Ryan Zimmerman - 1B|
|Tommy Joseph - 1B||Chris Heisey - LF|
|Andrew Knapp - C||Michael Taylor - CF|
|Freddy Galvis - SS||Jose Lobaton - C|
|Jeremy Hellickson - RHP||Tanner Roark - RHP|
The return of Jeremy Hellickson! He was in the process of pitching a gem last week when a forearm cramp limited his outing to just five innings. Let’s hope he’s properly hydrated today so he can dazzle us again.
