Let’s hope they get this one in.

With thunderstorms in the forecast and a lengthy delay likely, the Giants and Phillies will start their game today with a little bit of urgency. The Phillies really, really need a well managed game, a well played game and quite honestly, a little bit of a laugher to preserve some arms. The Giants, having won the series, are looking to sweep the Phillies and head home on a high.

Here are your lineups. For the Phillies:

Zach Eflin is on the hill. He won’t have Didi Gregorius or Jean Segura behind him as both are hurting, Segura heading to the 10-day IL (quadriceps). Andrew Knapp catches Eflin instead of manning the keystone and thankfully, Roman Quinn remains out of the starting lineup.

For the Giants:

This is a lineup the Phillies should beat. “Should” being the operative word here.

Let’s talk about it, and let’s hope they get the whole game in!
