I’m having a hard time focusing on tonight’s game because I’m still obsessed with those Rhys Hoskins home runs. Good lord, those were just... so profoundly awesome. We’re all dedicated fans, and as much as a fan can deserve anything, we deserved that.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES SAN DIEGO PADRES
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Manuel Margot - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Carlos Asuaje - 2B
Nick Williams - CF Jose Pirela - LF
Rhys Hoskins - LF Yangervis Solarte - SS
Tommy Joseph - 1B Wil Myers - 1B
Maikel Franco - 3B Cory Spangenberg - 3B
Hyun Soo Kim - RF Hector Sanchez - C
Jorge Alfaro - C Hunter Renfroe - RF
Mark Leiter - RHP Dinelson Lamet - RHP

A day without Odubel is a day without sunshine. At least that’s how I feel about it.

Best of luck to Mark Leiter Jr, who is starting tonight. I know that Petco is a pitcher’s park, but the way that Rhys Hoskins hit those dingers last night, I just don’t know.
