Game Thread 6/7: Phillies at Braves

I’m a little afraid.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, I didn’t think I should dream about four wins in a row.

And then we were gifted with that superb Aaron Nola start. Swoon. I feel like the last few days have been a small reward for surviving the month of May. Four wins in a row AND Aaron Nola brilliance. It’s almost too much to handle.

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Ender Inciarte - CF
Odubel Herrera - CF Brandon Phillips - 2B
Howie Kendrick - 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 Dansby Swanson - SS
Jerad Eickhoff - RHP Mike Foltynewicz - RHP

Jerad Eickhoff was the other recipient of the Pete Mackanin swift-kick-in-the-ass talk, which inspired Nola to his start last night. Maybe we’ll see a big step forward for him, too.
