Hey it’s the Nationals again.

You know, I’m pretty annoyed to have to watch the Nationals again. And I just checked the schedule and apparently the Phillies face the Nationals next weekend, too! What is with that? Were the schedulers trying to torture us?

I’m just feeling down after the 1-6 road trip. Hopefully the Phillies can pick up the pace again tonight. When they face the Nationals. Again.

Today's Lineups

Trea Turner - SS Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Jayson Werth - LF Aaron Altherr - LF
Daniel Murphy - 2B Odubel Herrera - CF
Ryan Zimmerman - 1B Maikel Franco - 3B
Anthony Rendon - 3B Tommy Joseph - 1B
Michael Taylor - CF Michael Saunders - RF
Chris Heisey - RF Cameron Rupp - C
Matt Wieters - C Freddy Galvis - SS
Stephen Strasburg - RHP Nick Pivetta - RHP

It’s Nick Pivetta night! I’m excited. Will the bullpen be functional? Who knows. Will the offense remember how to hit? No idea! But Nick Pivetta is pitching tonight, and that’s something I can look forward to.
