Preview: The Phillies can clinch the best record in the National League with a win over the Cardinals tonight, coupled with a Brewers defeat against the Cubs. Roy Halladay (18-5, 2.34) is looking for his 40th regular-season win as a Phillie, a victory that would potentially make him the NL Cy Young favorite. Halladay has given up three earned runs in 22 career innings against the Cardinals, including one run in six innings at Busch Stadium in late June. He'll be opposed by ex-Phils righty Kyle Lohse (13-8, 3.62), who hasn't beaten the Phillies since 2008. Ryan Howard, over the last four seasons, is 7-for-14 with two homers against Lohse. But it's a moot point, since Howard had a cortisone shot earlier Monday and is not expected to play until Thursday at the earliest. That means Beerleaguer's Ross Gload fan club gets to celebrate again, as the veteran earns a second straight start at first base. Here's the lineup: Rollins 6, Victorino 8, Utley 4, Pence 9, Ibanez 7, Polanco 5, Gload 3, Ruiz 2, Halladay 1.
