Game Thread 9/26: Braves At Phillies

It's here: The final series of the season. Congratulations on making it this far, because if you're reading this then you are clearly in it for the long haul. Or, you just want to see Ervin Santana pitch with a tomahawk across his chest one last time. Or, you've got nothing better to do and you're just going to watch the game out of habit. Whatever reason, I'm glad that you've come to talk about the Braves here for the night.

As far as the game itself is concerned, the lineups look like something you'd see in a game between 2 teams with barely anything left to play for. Andrelton Simmons is sitting out tonight's game, which means that Phil Gosselin has been moved to shortstop and Ramiro Pena will be starting at 2nd base. Yep. Meanwhile, Jimmy Rollins is finished for the season, which means that the Phillies will be starting Freddy Galvis at shortstop.

Here are the lineups in full, and more information on Williams:
