You’re still entitled to gloat over last night.

Last night, right? LAST NIGHT. I mean, holy crap. That was insane. It’s nice that the Phillies can beat the ever loving snot out of one of the best teams in baseball. Yeah, it might have been the rain, but the rain stopped. The Phillies’ scoring did not.

So what events will tonight’s game hold for us? We’ll find out soon. And that means it’s lineup time!

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES CHICAGO CUBS
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Kyle Schwarber - LF
Aaron Altherr - LF Kris Bryant - 3B
Odubel Herrera - CF Anthony Rizzo - 1B
Maikel Franco - 3B Ben Zobrist - RF
Michael Saunders - RF Addison Russell - SS
Tommy Joseph - 1B Jason Heyward - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Willson Contreras - C
Cameron Rupp - C Jon Lester - LHP
Jeremy Hellickson - RHP Javier Baez - 2B

Let’s see what Jeremy Hellickson can do against this Cubs lineup. He’s been on fire, and I want to see him continue being, uh, engulfed in flames. Figuratively. Definitely figuratively.
