I don’t care how stupid it makes me, I’m feeling pretty awesome with the Phillies on their two-game winning streak. It’s a babby winning streak, but they can make it grow with a win against the Braves tonight.

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Ender Inciarte - CF
Odubel Herrera - CF Brandon Phillips - 2B
Aaron Altherr - LF Nick Markakis - RF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Matt Kemp - LF
Maikel Franco - 3B Matt Adams - 1B
Michael Saunders - RF Tyler Flowers - C
Andrew Knapp - C Rio Ruiz - 3B
Freddy Galvis - SS Johan Camargo - SS
Nick Pivetta - RHP Bartolo Colon - RHP

Hey everyone, Nick Pivetta is back! This is Pivetta’s chance for redemption, as he wasn’t all that great in his last stint with the club.

So, will Pivetta wow the crowd? Can Odubel Herrera continue his hot streak? Will Maikel Franco build on his good starts? We’ll only find out if we watch.
