MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals
PRAAAAAAAISE
Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Sunday, cats and kittens! Yesterday’s game was really satisfying, wasn’t it? Great pitching, timely hitting, what more could you ask for?

How about a second game like that? That’s what more we could ask for. And the Phillies are gonna try to do it. Let’s get to those lineups.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES WASHINGTON NATIONALS
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Adam Eaton - CF
Daniel Nava - RF Anthony Rendon - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B Bryce Harper - RF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Daniel Murphy - 2B
Cameron Rupp - C Adam Lind - 1B
Aaron Altherr - CF Jayson Werth - LF
Brock Stassi - LF Matt Wieters - C
Freddy Galvis - SS Wilmer Difo - SS
Jerad Eickhoff - RHP Gio Gonzalez - LHP

I think Jerad Eickhoff has a decent chance of having a good start, right? He’s a good pitcher, and I think watching him handle the Nats lineup will be a lot of fun. And Nats starter Gio Gonzalez is... well, he’s Gio Gonzalez. Hopefully the Phillies can get on him early.

Happy series finale, everyone! Discuss the game in the comments below.
