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!
|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.
