As our friend Gonzo wrote yesterday, things down at Citizens Bank Park feel a bit like the days of old... only a little different. So with playoffs out of the picture, we've got to look for other small pleasures, like 90s retro night and... Spacehog.
Yes, it's 1990s retro night at the ball yard and the Phillies will be rocking the throwback unis during the game and fans will be treated to a Spacehog performance pregame.
It's gonna get weird. Vance Worley takes on Bronson Arroyo. No Kevin Frandsen tonight, sadly. Polly is back in the lineup at third.
7:05 lineup per usual.
Here's a list of some of the special happenings at CBP tonight, per the Phillies:
