Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals, Game 2, 1st Game of a Doubleheader
When: Tuesday, September 22, 2020, 3:05 p.m.
Where: Nationals Park
Weather: at game time, 71° and sunny, 0% chance of precipitation

Philadelphia Phillies

Aaron Nola (RHP, 5-3, 2.92 ERA) - Nola is coming off his 2nd worst start of the season (5 runs on 5 hits and 5 walks in 5 1/3 innings), but in his last start against Washington on September 1, he shut out the Nats over 8 innings.

1. Andrew McCutchen (R) DH
2. Bryce Harper (L) RF
3. Alec Bohm (R) 3B
4. Didi Gregorius (L) SS
5. J.T. Realmuto (R) C
6. Jean Segura (R) 2B
7. Jay Bruce (L) 1B
8. Adam Haseley (L) CF
9. Mickey Moniak (L) LF

Washington Nationals

Austin Voth (RHP, 0-5, 7.17 ERA) - Voth's last start was a 5-inning, 1 run win over the Rays. Voth has never faced the Phillies, unless it was in spring training.

1. Andrew Stevenson (L) RF
2. Trea Turner (R) SS
3. Juan Soto (L) LF
4. Asdrúbal Cabrera (S) DH
5. Brock Holt (L) 1B
6. Yan Gomes (R) C
7. Luis García (L) 2B
8. Josh Harrison (R) 3B
9. Victor Robles (R) CF

Today we note the autumnal equinox with feasts and feats of strength. And a happy 112th Ден на независимостта на България to our friends in Bulgaria and 60th jour de l'indépendance to our friends in Mali!

Going by WAR, the most accomplished major leaguer born on this day was Urban Shocker (1890-1928), who pitched for the St. Louis Browns and New York Yankees. He was a spitball pitcher. I had a joke about what Shocker's nickname or baseball grip would be, but I decided it was probably not in good taste.

HOF pitcher Bob Lemon (1920-2000) was also born on this day, as was HOF manager Tommy Lasorda who is 93 years young today. The most prominent current player born on September 22 is Carlos Correa. Among other prominent names, Vince Coleman turns 59 today.

Others born on this day include physicist Michael Faraday (1791-1867), field marshal and war criminal Wilhelm Keitel (1882-1946), actor/director Erich von Stroheim (1885-1957), singer/dancer/cheerleader Toni Basil (b. 1943), Whitesnake singer David Coverdale (b. 1951), rock legend Joan Jett (b. 1958), actor Scott Baio (b. 1960), KC Royals manager Mike Matheny (b. 1970), etc.

Another early start on the GDT as a reminder to forumites that today's start time is yet another early odd time due to the doubleheader. Confirmed lineups to come.

I bow down to our new game thread overlord.  That's a good start, dude.

Also, crappy season overall, but it's fair to point out how ridiculous Soto's been.  You have a 21-year-old power hitter staring down a potential batting title from a distance of one week.   That's once-every-never kinda crap.

I know he has to take two games into consideration, but I hope Davey is not thinking he can let Voth keep going through the order much more.

Small sample size, but making a case for leadoff hitter.

They walk Soto after back-to-back doubles, and Soto effectively doubles anyway!

He's playing like he should be in the mix.  He was pretty good at the end of 2019 too.

He should throw the curve more, it’s nasty. (Nola)

It says something about what dave thinks about Robles' hitting that Stevenson's leadoff and Robles is 9th.

Robles K's too much and does not walk enough. If not for all the HBP, his career .322 OBP would look even worse. Stevenson needs to work on his K rate as well, though.
