Hey, it’s California!

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

The Phillies are in California, facing the California — er, Los Angeles Angels. It’s a late game, but you know what makes that all better.

IT’S AARON NOLA DAY, BITCHES.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES LOS ANGELES ANGELS
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Yunel Escobar - 3B
Freddy Galvis - SS Mike Trout - CF
Aaron Altherr - RF Albert Pujols - DH
Tommy Joseph - 1B Luis Valbuena - 1B
Odubel Herrera - CF Andrelton Simmons - SS
Maikel Franco - 3B Ben Revere - LF
Nick Williams - LF Martin Maldonado - C
Hyun Soo Kim - DH Ramon Flores - RF
Andrew Knapp - C Kaleb Cowart - 2B
Aaron Nola - RHP Ricky Nolasco - RHP

YEAH I SAID BITCHES, GET ON BOARD. (I’m kidding, I love you guys.)

So it’s Aaron Nola Day, and there are also other guys. We’ve got my favorite catcher Andrew Knapp, everyone’s favorite newest Phillies Hyun Soo Kim, and all the dudes you already know and love.

The Phillies have won five games in a row, and it’s incredible. The Angels aren’t incredible (Mike Trout excepted, of course), but they’re definitely better than the Phillies. Probably. The Phillies recent winning streak has me questioning everything. And it’s pretty great.
