I know the Phillies won just one game yesterday, but it feels so good. It may have been the canary in the coal mine of baseball wins, but this is how it feels:

WEEEEEEE ARE THE CHAMMMMPIONNNNSSSSS, WEEEEEEE ARE THE CHAMMMMPIONNNSSS! (Side note: Freddy Mercury is incredible, I went down a Queen rabbit hole on Youtube after finding that video and I don’t regret a single second.)

Am I making too big a deal of this win? Probably. But since the wins probably won’t come any more often than they did before yesterday, I think we need to celebrate every chance we have. Celebrate, be happy, enjoy the win.

Today's Lineups

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Denard Span - CF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Eduardo Nunez - 3B Odubel Herrera - CF
Brandon Belt - LF Howie Kendrick - LF

Joe Panik - 2B Cameron Rupp - C
Orlando Calixte - RF Freddy Galvis - SS
Matt Moore - LHP Jeremy Hellickson - RHP

Jeremy Hellickson is on the mound for today’s rubber match, and this is a chance for him to get back on track. I’m not begging here, just being hopeful. Because begging hasn’t turned out well.
