Standing at the doorstep to 90 wins, the Phillies find themselves in the driver's seat for a spot in the post-season with a favorable matchup tonight. Left-handers Cole Hamels and Mike Hampton toe the rubber when the Phils and Braves continue their series.
The Phillies' magic number to win the National League East is four, with the Wild Card magic number down to three. Elsewhere, the Mets call on Johan Santana to stop the bleeding against the Cubs. First pitch is 7 p.m. And in Milwaukee, Dave Bush takes the hill for the Brewers as they begin a series with Pittsburgh. That one gets underway at 8 p.m.Lineups for the Phillies are posted, and it’s an identical lineup card as last night.
