Game Thread 9/23: Phillies at Braves

Wash your mouth out with some Hendu Alvarez soap

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves
Sprinting toward the end of the season like
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies, for once, did not beat the Braves last night. They’re now a mediocre 12-5 against their division rival this season. In order to correct this, the Phils will once again bat Freddy Galvis second and Rhys Hoskins - who hasn’t homered in NINE DAYS MY GOD - fourth. Henderson Alvarez will get the start, opposing Atlanta’s Julio Teheran, who used to be good but is now morbidly ineffective pitching at home.
