Game Thread 8/3: Phillies at Angels

Put those brooms away, please.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Please Phillies, don’t get swept. Please. I’m sure it would make native son Mike Trout feel really good, but that’s not really why the Phillies play games. The point is to win, so please do that. Please. Please?

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Ben Revere - LF
Freddy Galvis - SS Mike Trout - CF
Aaron Altherr - RF Albert Pujols - DH
Tommy Joseph - 1B Luis Valbuena - 3B
Odubel Herrera - CF Andrelton Simmons - SS
Maikel Franco - 3B C.J. Cron - 1B
Nick Williams - DH Kaleb Cowart - 2B
Hyun Soo Kim - LF Martin Maldonado - C
Andrew Knapp - C Ramon Flores - RF
Jerad Eickhoff - RHP Parker Bridwell - RHP

Okay. At least Nick Williams and Aaron Altherr are back in the lineup. And we’ve got human metronome Jerad Eickhoff on the mound with Aaron Knapp backing him up. Those are all names I like.

Maybe they can stop the Angels train and retain a little dignity before they leave California. Or, you know, maybe not.
