It’s fan appreciate night at Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies play the final regular season game in South Philadelphia tonight. All fans in attendance this evening will receive a rally towel which celebrates five-straight NL East Championships. If the team really wants to show their appreciation, they’d win the final pre-playoff game at CBP tonight against the Nationals.
Roy Oswalt (8-9, 3.66) will get the start against right-hander Brad Peacock (1-0, 1.42) as the Phils attempt to prevent an ugly four game sweep at the hands of the Nats while putting a skid to their longest losing streak of the season.
Tonight’s Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Ibanez, Gload (1B), Ruiz, Bowker (RF), Orr (3B), and Oswalt.
As for Bowker getting the start in right, Charlie Manuel wants to see what he’s got aside from his few pinch-hit at-bats.
“Wanted to see him play,” Charlie said. “I haven’t seen him play yet besides off the bench to pinch hit. I wanted to put some left-handed hitters on this guy tonight.”
First pitch set for 7:05. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at CBP one last time because it’s gonna get rowdy next time you see the Phils here on October 1st.
