2018 Gameday

Gameday 2018: Braves (29-18) at Phillies (27-19)

The Phillies are looking to take two of three from the first-place Braves. They certainly don’t want to let Atlanta grab a 2.5-game lead in the division. A win is necessary tonight.

So it’s good that the Phils have Jake Arrieta on the hill, who hasn’t yet faced the Braves. Conversely, Atlanta brings Luiz Gohara to the hill, who the Phils haven’t seen.

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. Alfaro – C
  8. Kingery – SS
  9. Arrieta – P

Pitchers: Jake Arrieta (3-2, 2.82 ERA) vs. Luiz Gohara (0-0, 1.29 ERA)

I hope Rhys Hoskins hits two home runs tonight to shut up all the haters.

Your Gameday Beer: Big game means Big Game Beer. We’re doing Three Philosophers tonight, one of my all-time favorites. Big alcohol, big candi sugar, big raisin notes, big beauty.

Go Phillies!
