Ladies and gentlemen, tonight is the night. It’s The Goldbergs Night at the ballpark!

I’m kidding. I’ve never seen that show. Tonight is actually the night that we get one of the most perfect lineups I’ve ever seen.

Today's Lineups

OAKLAND A'S PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Matt Joyce - LF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Marcus Semien - SS Odubel Herrera - CF
Jed Lowrie - 2B Aaron Altherr - LF
Matt Olson - 1B Rhys Hoskins - 1B
Ryon Healy - 3B Nick Williams - RF
Bruce Maxwell - C Maikel Franco - 3B
Chad Pinder - RF Andrew Knapp - C
Boog Powell - CF J.P. Crawford - SS
Daniel Mengden - RHP Mark Leiter - RHP

LOOK AT THAT THING. Hoskins at first, Crawford at shortstop, it is a thing of great beauty. Just slot Scott Kingery in there for Cesar Hernandez and Jorge Alfaro at catcher and we’re just about perfect.

Now that we’ve got the perfect positional lineup, Marc Leiter Jr. will try not to mess it all up. But really, who cares. This offense has been rolling lately, let’s see them score another ten runs tonight.
