Game Thread 8/7: Phillies at Diamondbacks

The Phillies are back at it tonight in the desert. Who doesn’t love a little baseball after 9:30 pm? The answer is, of course, everyone.

Last time Cesar Hernandez saw Zach Greinke earlier this season, he went 3-for-3 off him with a double and two runs scored. Odubel Herrera has a .364 career BA against Greinke. Asdrubal Cabrera has a .429 BA vs. Greinke with a 1.071 OPS, but he hasn’t faced him since 2012. But that’s fine, not much has changed since then anyway.

What I’m saying is, the offense seems fine. There’s just the matter of Nick Pivetta, who may look much happier in his Baseball Reference profile picture than Greinke, but unfortunately he does have a 6.42 ERA in his last 11 starts. There’s also the brutal 14-inning loss from last night that no one wants to talk about. So let’s not!
