2018 Gameday

Gameday 2018: Phillies (8-5) at Rays (3-11)

TampaBayDevilRays4.jpgThe Phillies now eye a three-game sweep of the Rays, their sixth-straight win, and a chance to be four games over .500. They’ll turn to Ben Lively, whose last outing (5.2 IP, 5 ER, 9 H, 7 K, 2 BB) was probably a few batters too long.

The Rays are having a bullpen day, starting with Ryan Yarbrough, who has appeared in three games and finished one.

Gametime: 1:10 p.m.

The lineup:

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

Pitchers: Ben Lively (0-1, 5.56 ERA) vs. the Rays Bullpen

Yarbrough is a lefty, so I suppose that’s one reason why J.P. Crawford and Nick Williams are on the bench today. But I’m not a big fan of Crawford taking a seat, as he’s been hot, and Yarbrough is probably not pitching too many innings. Maybe Pedro Florimon surprises us today … we’ll see.

Your Gameday Beer: Big fan of Indian Brown Ale from Dogfish Head. An OG that still nails it. You get the nuttiness of a brown mixed with a hoppy profile that feels throwback and easily sippable. Enjoy on this gray Sunday.

Go Phillies!
