Game Thread 9/27: Braves At Phillies

The first half of last night's game was actually fun to watch! The Braves were up 4, Ervin Santana was pitching well, and everybody was having a good time. Then the final 4 innings came about, and the less we talk about that, the better. Now, the Braves will be trying to bounce back from that loss with Aaron Harang on the mound.

Andrelton Simmons is back in the lineup tonight at shortstop, and so is Emilio Bonifacio, who will be playing 2B tonight because Tommy La Stella has apparently died. Anyways, here's the rest of the lineups, plus more information on tonight's starter for the Phillies: A.J. Burnett.
