Game Thread 8/20: Phillies at Giants


MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at San Francisco Giants Andrew Villa-USA TODAY Sports

So, uh, last night was bonkers. I can’t think of another word to describe it. Ty Kelly? Grand slam? Yeah. Sure. Okay. No one on the planet could have predicted that.

Unfortunately, we can’t linger on yesterday. Today is here, so let’s see who’s playing.

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Denard Span - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Kelby Tomlinson - 2B
Rhys Hoskins - 1B Jarrett Parker - LF
Maikel Franco - 3B Buster Posey - C
Jorge Alfaro - C Pablo Sandoval - 3B
Nick Williams - CF Brandon Crawford - SS
Pedro Florimon - LF Ryder Jones - 1B
Cameron Perkins - RF Carlos Moncrief - RF
Ben Lively - RHP Madison Bumgarner - LHP

Well okay! Jorge Alfaro is playing again, but he’s catching while Cameron Rupp sits. Rhys Hoskins at first while Tommy Joseph sits for the second straight game. I’m AMAZED this is happening. I figured Pete Mackanin would have a panic attack if he didn’t play Tommy Joseph at least every other day.

Let’s count our blessings, and discuss the game in the comments below.
