Ah damnit.

Gametime: 7:05 p.m.

The lineup:

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

Pitchers: Nick Pivetta (1-1, 3.27 ERA) vs. Gio Gonzalez (3-2, 2.67 ERA)

It’s Pivetta Day, as the old curveballer gets a crack at the Nats somewhat healthy lineup. Scott Kingery is apparently healthy and at shortstop.

Go Phillies!
