The Phillies winning streak had to end sometime. At least it didn’t end unceremoniously, or with a hugely outsized score. They lost respectably. As a team should.
But let’s see what the Phillies are up against tonight.
|PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES||LOS ANGELES DODGERS|
|Cesar Hernandez - 2B||Andrew Toles - CF|
|Freddy Galvis - SS||Corey Seager - SS|
|Odubel Herrera - CF||Adrian Gonzalez - 1B|
|Maikel Franco - 3B||Yasmani Grandal - C|
|Michael Saunders - RF||Yasiel Puig - RF|
|Daniel Nava - LF||Cody Bellinger - LF|
|Brock Stassi - 1B||Chase Utley - 2B|
|Andrew Knapp - C||Chris Taylor - 3B|
|Zach Eflin - RHP||Brandon McCarthy - RHP|
BRANDON MCCARTHY ALERT. I like Brandon McCarthy, mostly, but I think there’s a chance for the Phillies to put a hurting on the Dodgers tonight. McCarthy has been good this season, and while his ERA is 2.25, I think we all know that probably isn’t who he actually is.
Zach Eflin has a chance to build on his last two excellent starts, and by Jove I think he can do it. By Jove, whoever that is.
Discuss the game (and my obvious encroaching madness) in the comments below.
