2018 Gameday

Gameday 2018: Pirates (12-7) at Phillies (11-7)

pirateslogo.gifGame two of a four-game series against the Pirates! Friday night! Baseball!

Gametime: 7:05 p.m.

The lineup:

  1. Hernandez – 2B
  2. Santana – 1B
  3. Herrera – CF
  4. Hoskins – LF
  5. Altherr – RF
  6. Knapp – C
  7. Franco – 3B
  8. Lively – P
  9. Crawford – SS

Pitchers: Ben Lively (0-1, 5.87 ERA) vs. Ivan Nova (2-1, 4.88 ERA)

Why do I get the feeling that a lot of runs will be scored tonight? Andrew Knapp is in for a scuffling Jorge Alfaro, and he’s up in the six-hole, which is interesting, but probably more to get a lefty option a little higher in the lineup. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.

Your Gameday Beer: While Ivan Nova is Dominican, the name Ivan is most synonymous with Russian tsars. So, yeah, let’s go with a Russian imperial stout. How’s Dark Lord from 3 Floyds? It’s a good one, folks. Grab your finest imperial from the beer fridge for tonight’s game. Chill out and enjoy.

Go Phillies!
