2018 Gameday

Gameday 2018: Braves (14-10) at Phillies (15-9)



braves2-300x113.gifAfter losing two of three to the Diamondbacks, the Phillies will hope to right the ship against the freaking team we’ve been playing every other day, basically: the Braves.

Hey, at least we don’t have to hear that terrible, no good chop.

And at least it won’t be on Facebook.

Gametime: 7:05 p.m.

The lineup:

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

Pitchers: Aaron Nola (2-1, 2.30 ERA) vs. Julio Teheran (1-1, 4.00 ERA)

For the third time in these first 24 games, Nola will face off with Teheran. I wonder if that’s a record …

Meanwhile the Phils will get their first taste of Braves’ super-prospect Ronald Acuna (.444/.444/.889, HR, 2B). People are going to watch him play and be more upset that J.P. Crawford isn’t that good. It’s bound to happen.

Your Gameday Beer:  I really enjoyed Stone’s Xocoveza, a chocolate-first stout designed to be a play off Mexican hot chocolate, with pepper and cinnamon (especially on the nose). It’s quite robust, dark and mysterious. Also boozy. Everything I love in dark beers!

Go Phillies!
