Tonight's Lineup: Will Williams' Success Vs. Lefties Continue Vs. Kershaw?

Rhys Hoskins, Nick Williams, J.P. Crawford and Jorge Alfaro face the toughest test of their baseball lives tonight when the Phillies take on Cy Young frontrunner Clayton Kershaw. 

Williams bats third. He continues to hold his own against lefties, hitting .299 with an .819 OPS. It's better production against same-handed pitching than Williams ever had in the minors. 

Hoskins is just 6 for 28 (.214) in the majors against lefties, but all six hits have been home runs. 

Crawford gets the start at second base and bats seventh.
