Sport Gamethread 5/4: Brewers at Phillies
Baseball is stupid anyway: Braves 8, Phillies 7
I don’t even like it anymore
The Phillies try once more to get back to .500 for the 9th time this season.
They’ve been 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 9-9, 10-10, 11-11, 12-12, and 13-13, and look to get to 15-15.
Coming into play tonight, they’re a half game behind the Nationals in the NL East. The Nats host the Braves tonight, while the Mets visit St. Louis.
Bryce Harper is still out with a sore wrist, apparently reaggravated in the Sunday night game. Brad Miller fills in.
Roman Quinn in center, Nick Maton at second base behind Aaron Nola.
Our ace is ready.

Trevor Bauer giving away #FreeNick cleats worn in support of suspended Reds outfielder .
Trevor Bauer tweeted that he'll autograph the #FreeNick cleats he wore and send them to a lucky fan who subscribes to his email list."Trevor Bauer no doubt a very polarizing figure in the baseball and sports world. But make no mistake about it — his teammates love him," Bally Sports Ohio analyst Jim Day said during Tuesday night's Reds-Dodgers broadcast. "He is all for the player — and certainly expressing themselves — and he has done that in numerous ways, including wanting to #FreeCastellanos from afar — which was highly unusual that you have a player that's now a former Red sticking up for Nick Castellanos from afar.
