Gamethread 8/15: Mets at Phillies

It’s ace time.

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

After a thrilling ninth inning win, the Phillies tonight get to send their ace to the hill to combat the Mets. Aaron Nola has been as close to lights out as can be this year and has regained his place among the NL’s elite. He’ll be opposed by Steven Matz, who has an ERA above 8.

I just jinxed it, didn’t I?

Here is your Phillies lineup:

Some interesting changes here as Phil Gosselin DH’s for the team and Scott Kingery gives Roman Quinn a night off. Alec Bohm continues to start.

For the Mets:

A lineup that is actually producing quite well, especially Dominic Smith who is finally starting to show why he was a top prospect.

Game time is at 6:05 tonight.
