Game Thread 5/20: Phillies at Pirates

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

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.
