Who needs winning? I don’t! I certainly don’t need the Phillies to win a game, no siree Bob! And this definitely isn’t reverse psychology, nope not at all!
(You think it’ll work?) (Probably not.)
|ST. LOUIS CARDINALS||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
|Matt Carpenter - 1B||Odubel Herrera - CF|
|Dexter Fowler - CF||Howie Kendrick - 2B|
|Stephen Piscotty - RF||Aaron Altherr - RF|
|Jedd Gyorko - 3B||Tommy Joseph - 1B|
|Yadier Molina - C||Maikel Franco - 3B|
|Aledmys Diaz - SS||Daniel Nava - LF|
|Tommy Pham - LF||Andrew Knapp - C|
|Paul DeJong - 2B||Freddy Galvis - SS|
|Mike Leake - RHP||Jeremy Hellickson - RHP|
Mike Leake is having himself a season. He’s got a 3.14 ERA and the best strikeout numbers of his career. That’s a helluva brick wall for the Phillies to walk into again. They lost all three games against the Cards last week, and it was not fun. The Phillies need to win a game again, but it doesn’t seem likely that tonight will be that night.
But still, you never know. Jeremy Hellickson might have something up his sleeve. And Tommy Joseph has a 14-game hitting streak. You never know.
