Gamethread 5/4: Brewers at Phillies

Phils look to get back to .500. Again.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies try once more to get back to .500 for the 9th time this season.

They’ve been 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 9-9, 10-10, 11-11, 12-12, and 13-13, and look to get to 15-15.

Coming into play tonight, they’re a half game behind the Nationals in the NL East. The Nats host the Braves, while the Mets visit St. Louis.

Bryce Harper is still out with a sore wrist, apparently reaggravated in the Sunday night game. Brad Miller fills in.

Roman Quinn in center, and Nick Maton at second base behind Aaron Nola.

For the Brewers, lefty Eric Lauer takes the mound for his second start of the season. He pitched five scoreless innings against the Dodgers last week in his first outing.
