Well, now comes the encore.
It’s going to be nigh on impossible to exceed or even replicate the wonder and majesty of last night’s 17-3 romp and its unbelievable first inning, especially given the...uh...change in opposing starter quality. But those who put their faith in momentum will tell us that the Phillies have all of it right now, and have a chance to ride a wave and maybe keep on surprising. Why not?
The Phils’ lineup stays the same, apart from Andrew Knapp making his second career start. Jeremy Hellickson takes the ball on the hill for the Phils as we begin our second turn through the rotation.
|WASHINGTON NATIONALS||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
