Game Thread 7/30: Braves at Phillies

New, comments

Let’s keep the ball rolling.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

I was really excited to write up this game thread and loudly proclaim “THE PHILLIES COULD SWEEP THE BRAVES TODAY!” And then I looked at the schedule and realized the Phillies have one more game against the Braves on Monday, which is ultra weird and a huge letdown, sweep-wise.

But hey, today the Phillies have a chance to win four games in a row! They’ve only done that twice this season, most recently on June 6. So today is very exciting!

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Ender Inciarte - CF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Brandon Phillips - 2B Freddy Galvis - SS
Freddie Freeman - 3B Aaron Altherr - RF
Matt Adams - 1B Nick Williams - LF
Nick Markakis - RF Tommy Joseph - 1B
Kurt Suzuki - C Odubel Herrera - CF
Johan Camargo - SS Maikel Franco - 3B
Sean Rodriguez - LF Andrew Knapp - C
R.A. Dickey - RHP Vince Velasquez - RHP

It’s also exciting because Vince Velasquez is starting. I’m hoping os hard he has a great start. He needs it. We need it. But he needs it more.
