It’s understandable if the Phillies were a bit sluggish on Sunday night against the Cardinals after celebrating their division crown on Saturday night. Now that we’re two nights removed from the champagne popping however, and with Roy Halladay on the mound, it’s time to focus on fine tuning the machine for the postseason.
It’s Roy Halladay (18-5, 2.34) looking for his 19th win of the season going against right-hander Kyle Lohse (13-8, 3.62).
1.) Jimmy Rollins, 2.) Shane Victorino, 3.) Chase Utley, 4.) Hunter Pence, 5.) Raul Ibanez, 6.) Placido Polanco, 7.) Ross Gload (1B), 8.) Carlos Ruiz, 9.) Roy Halladay
From the Notes: With a win tonight, Roy Halladay would become the first Phillies pitcher to record at least 40 wins over a two-season span since Hall of Famer Steve Carlton did so in 1979 (18) and 1980 (24) for a total of 42.
The Phillies magic number for home field throughout the playoffs sits at 1. So either a win tonight or a Brewers loss will get that out of the way.
7:05 from Citizens Bank Park. Let’s see if anybody can one-up JVR’s power.
