Game Thread 6/7: Phillies at Cubs

Let’s just try to leave Wrigley without embarrassing ourselves further.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Chicago Cubs Jim Young-USA TODAY Sports

Well I’m pretty ready for the Phillies to get the hell out of Wrigley, how about you?

The ending of last night’s game was so, so bad. And not just because the Phillies lost on a walk-off, but because they actually made a comeback to tie the game, and then went ahead on Dylan Cozens’ first major league home run!

Last night did not end well, but hopefully today will be better. Let’s look at the lineup.

Hopefully Nick Williams, who injured himself last night on Wrigley Field’s stupid ivy wall (yeah I said it, come at me), will be back in the lineup soon. In the meantime, we’ve got Dylan Cozens to replace him.

But today’s game is really in the hands of Nick Pivetta. Nicky, bring us home.

Discuss the game in the comments below.
