A rubber match that the Phillies really want to win
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, the Phillies are going to have two celebrations today. First, it is NuPhanatic’s birthday and that’s always a joyous occasion. Second, they get to play a baseball game. Today, they’ll try to avenge yesterday’s….effort? If that’s what you want to call it. Here are the lineups. For the Phillies:
Going for the series win with our ace on the mound.

Interesting that they have the entire lineup in there today. You’d have thought Realmuto would have gotten a day off following yesterday’s four hour slog, but he’s back in there and raring to go.
For the Cardinals:

In all honesty, this is a game the Phillies should win. Their ace is on the hill and the opposing pitcher is….less than intimidating. With a full starting lineup, it’s fair to expect a victory and series win for the Phillies today.
Let’s talk about it and happy birthday, Phanatic!
