If you, like me, have been wondering when and if this home and home series would ever end, I have good news for you: it ends tonight. This is the last time the Phillies will face the Red Sox this year. This series is a scant nine innings from being over, heaven willing.
Let there be celebration and dancing throughout the land.
|BOSTON RED SOX||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
|Mookie Betts - RF||Odubel Herrera - CF|
|Dustin Pedroia - 2B||Howie Kendrick - 2B|
|Xander Bogaerts - SS||Aaron Altherr - RF|
|Mitch Moreland - 1B||Tommy Joseph - 1B|
|Andrew Benintendi - LF||Maikel Franco - 3B|
|Jackie Bradley - CF||Daniel Nava - LF|
|Pablo Sandoval - 3B||Freddy Galvis - SS|
|Sandy Leon - C||Andrew Knapp - C|
|Chris Sale - LHP||Nick Pivetta - RHP|
Truly, I just want the series to be over. I could say something here about Aaron Altherr continuing his solid recent performance, or Odubel Herrera climbing out of another slump, but I just want it to be over. I could hope for a win, but I worry that if I do that, the two teams will play far into the night, and none of us want that. No more Phillies-Red Sox baseball. Please no.
