Oh man, was yesterday real? Was it? It doesn’t feel real. It all feels like a dream. Goodness gracious. Never in a million years would I have ever predicted, not even in my wildest dreams, that this could happen.

Though in retrospect, we should have know that something was up when he hit his first two home runs in the same night.

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Ender Inciarte - CF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Brandon Phillips - 3B Freddy Galvis - SS
Freddie Freeman - 1B Nick Williams - RF
Matt Kemp - LF Rhys Hoskins - 1B
Nick Markakis - RF Daniel Nava - LF
Tyler Flowers - C Maikel Franco - 3B
Ozzie Albies - 2B Pedro Florimon - CF
Dansby Swanson - SS Cameron Rupp - C
Lucas Sims - RHP Aaron Nola - RHP

Not only do we have Rhys Hoskins in the lineup tonight, we’ve got Aaron Nola! And hey, Rhys Hoskins is at first base! He had a bit of a questionable day at first yesterday, so it’s good that he’s getting more time there. Tommy can sit. Forever. Bye bye.

Godspeed, Rhys. And discuss the game in the comments below.
