Man. Woman.

Together, we have been going towards progress ever since the dawn of time. Tonight, in Atlanta, Georgia, the Phillies take the next step, a BOLD step, towards that same progress as they send Vince Velasquez to the hill in search of a series win to begin the 2018 season. Here are the lineups:

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Ender Inciarte - CF
Carlos Santana - 1B Ozzie Albies - 2B
Odubel Herrera - CF Freddie Freeman - 1B
Rhys Hoskins - LF Nick Markakis - RF
Aaron Altherr - RF Preston Tucker - LF
Scott Kingery - SS Dansby Swanson - SS
Maikel Franco - 3B Ryan Flaherty - 3B
Jorge Alfaro - C Chris Stewart - C
Vince Velasquez - RHP Brandon McCarthy - RHP

Gabe Kapler has thus far tried everything to gain advantages. Tonight, he tries his top prospect at his worst infield position in search of plate apperances for the young man. He tried his young rookie catcher for the first time this season to try and develop a rapport with Velasquez. And hopefully, if we're lucky, he tried to end this game in under four hours.

Enjoy the game!
