The Phillies will try to go back to winning a series after a lousy start to the week in Atlanta.

We’re back around to Jake Arrieta in the rotation, meaning it’s time for a fresh start against the Pirates. The Phillies may have had trouble with the Braves, but maybe they can do better against their Pittsburgh counterparts than other certain members of the city sports landscape. Though Arrieta will have to battle Corey Dickerson, who is 4-for-6 with a double and a triple off him lifetime (which is to say, in 2014), as well as the rest of a Pirates lineup that, like the Braves, is off to a much hotter start than anyone predicted. Their starter tonight, Jameson Taillon, is part of that, having allowed two runs and 18 SO in 20.1 IP.

Oh. And Scott Kingery is at third for Maikel Franco.
