With all this talk about the Mets, lest we forget the Phillies must overcome a tough match-up tonight against Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals. First pitch is 8:10 p.m when the Phils try for the sweep and seventh-straight win.
Game chat: A nice, quick 5-2 win in regulation would do nicely. One without many hits, walks or pitching changes. Very few mound visits or deep counts. Just a couple quick homers, a solid seven innings from Jamie Moyer, a one-two-three inning from Tom Gordon to bridge the gap to Brett Myers for his 18th save. Game ends at the manageable hour of 11 p.m., you brush your teeth and go to bed happy. In the morning, you wake up with wood. Life would be so fine.
Lineups are posted: Jayson Werth, Carlos Ruiz and Abraham Nunez are in. Jim Edmonds and Albert Pujols are out. Discuss all of tonight's action, including Mets/Nationals and Pirates/Padres, right here.
