Oh god, it’s the Astros. Nooooooo. They’re 65-33 and the second best team in baseball. The Phillies have been doing so well lately and now they have to face the brick wall that is the Astros. Why, god, why?!
Oy. Here are the lineups, I’m going to go and light a few candles.
|HOUSTON ASTROS||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
|George Springer - CF||Cesar Hernandez - 2B|
|Jose Altuve - 2B||Freddy Galvis - SS|
|Josh Reddick - RF||Nick Williams - RF|
|Yulieski Gurriel - 1B||Maikel Franco - 3B|
|Marwin Gonzalez - SS||Odubel Herrera - CF|
|Carlos Beltran - LF||Tommy Joseph - 1B|
|Brian McCann - C||Andrew Knapp - C|
|Alex Bregman - 3B||Cameron Perkins - LF|
|Brad Peacock - RHP||Vince Velasquez - RHP|
So we’ve got Vince Velasquez pitching against his former team, Odubel Herrera moved up in the lineup, Andrew Knapp is thankfully catching, and Nick Williams hitting third. I have to say, I kind of like this lineup. Let’s see how they fare against Brad Peacock and the Astros.
