Yo, you better win this one

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Arizona Diamondbacks Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It’s not hard to ask for the Phillies to win a game against an opponent that has lost over 80 games this year. Apparently it must be difficult because it’s exactly what the Phillies did last. Forgetting that offense was a part of the game, they did not hit well at all, even with the Diamondbacks doing the pitching.

Tonight, they’ll be at it again. They’ll need to start getting some wins here as the Mets have already taken a game from the Giants and the Braves continue their hot hitting ways. Here are tonight’s lineups.

For the Phillies:

Ranger Suarez gets the ball tonight, hoping to go at least five innings for the team as he continues to build up his arm. Still no Alec Bohm in the lineup, his obviously having been banished to the bench for the time being.

For the Diamondbacks:

Tonight’s starter is Humberto Castellanos. I do not know who this man is.

Let’s talk about it.
