A Note for Today:

Playing for about 500 fans at the park, one of the leading pitchers in all of baseball, Jake Arrieta, is facing the Phillies as we speak.  Already giving up one home run to Aaron Altherr, the Phillies lead the first game of two, 1-0.

Our old friend, Carlos Ruiz is back tonight catching for Adam Morgan on the mound.  Ryan Howard is somehow still in the lineup, but are we really going to get rid of that sore spot?

Darnell Sweeney will get the day off, even after having the day off yesterday, and Jeff Francouer will start in his spot.

Two games back to back tonight, with 30 minutes in between.  First game started at 5:05 pm EST.


Hernandez 2B, Galvis SS, Herrera CF, Francouer LF, Howard 1B, Altherr RF, Asche 3B, Ruiz C, Morgan LHP
