Gamethread 8/19: Phillies at Diamondbacks

God, just win one of these games please

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Arizona Diamondbacks Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

You know, these are the Arizona Diamondbacks. They aren’t a good baseball team. They just won their 40th game of the year. They’ve had some moments, sure (how ya doin, Tyler Gilbert?), but they’re bad. They’re just trying to not be the worst team in baseball at this point, but darn if the Phillies aren’t trying to help them do that.

Losing these past two games are inexcusable. They’re also in the past and today, the Phillies will look to salvage at the very least a game from a series they should have won, let along swept. Here are the lineups. For the Phillies:

<sigh> Still no Rhys Hoskins. At least Joe Girardi has realized that benching Brad Miller was the right move in his search for offense. And hey - it’s Zack Wheeler Day!

For the Diamondbacks:

Madison Bumgarner? Feels like a loss.

Let’s commiserate together talk about it.
