Jason Marquis (0-5, 14.33) and Roy Halladay (15-8, 2.27) have the ball when the Phillies try for revenge over July’s series loss to the Nationals beginning tonight at 7:05.
As of this writing, the Braves were positioned for another final at-bat win, this time against the Cubs. Down 3-2 with two outs in the ninth, Rick Ankiel cleared the bases with a three-run triple off Cubs closer Carlos Marmol to take the lead 5-3. The Phillies lead the Wild Card by a game over San Francisco and two games over St. Louis, but can't catch the opportunistic Braves. Tonight’s lineups are posted: Rollins SS, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Werth RF, Ibanez LF, Victorino CF, Sweeney 1B, Ruiz C. Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy the game.
