Now that game 1 feels like it was a month ago, let’s get ready for game 2!

MLB: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome, one and all, to game 2! I’m definitely excited, because after six months without Phillies baseball, the Phillies played one game and then MLB gave them a 48 hour break. That seems really cruel. We get just a liiiiiiiittle taste and then nothing, because MLB wants to remind us that they control baseball, and we’ll get whatever they give to us and we’ll like it.

Well that got dark.

On to the lineups!

Today's Lineups
