Don’t we all feel so much better now?

Doesn’t it feel so much better now that the Phillies have won a game? I mean, it’s just one, and Jeremy Hellickson got hurt (though it doesn’t appear it was too badly), but they overcame, well, themselves to add to the win column.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES PITTSBURGH PIRATES
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Adam Frazier - LF
Freddy Galvis - SS Josh Harrison - 2B
Aaron Altherr - LF Andrew McCutchen - CF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Josh Bell - 1B
Odubel Herrera - CF David Freese - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B John Jaso - RF
Michael Saunders - RF Francisco Cervelli - C
Cameron Rupp - C Jordy Mercer - SS
Vince Velasquez - RHP Ivan Nova - RHP

Okay. Vince Velasquez. I feel like a broken record that repeats “maybe this is the start where he’ll figure it out” every five days. But hey, maybe this will really be the one! And I wouldn’t keep saying it if I didn’t think he was capable of actually doing it!

Can the Phillies make it two in a row? Let’s not get greedy now.
