Game Thread 6/23: Phillies at Diamondbacks

What is this feeling, so sudden and new?

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Phillies John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

It’s always a new and strange feeling the day after the Phillies win. It doesn’t happen that often, so I try and enjoy it while I can. Of course, yesterday’s win came with some weird drama, but you can’t have everything.

Today's Lineups

Cameron Perkins - LF Daniel Descalso - LF
Howie Kendrick - 2B David Peralta - RF
Aaron Altherr - RF Paul Goldschmidt - 1B
Tommy Joseph - 1B Jake Lamb - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B Chris Owings - SS
Odubel Herrera - CF Brandon Drury - 2B
Freddy Galvis - SS Chris Iannetta - C
Cameron Rupp - C Rey Fuentes - CF
Mark Leiter - RHP Patrick Corbin - LHP

The Phillies have had some impressive pitching lately. Nick Pivetta and Aaron Nola both had fantastic starts, and now it’s the turn of... Mark Leiter Jr., in his first major league start.

Leiter is facing a frankly fearsome Diamondbacks lineup. (They’re not tied for second in the NL West for nothing.) So good luck to him! We’re behind him! And hopefully, he knows how low our bar is as Phillies fans. Don’t give up like 10 runs, and besides that we’ll be happy.
