Phils Look to Continue Winning Ways Against Atlanta

Aug 6, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

The Phillies look to play spoiler against the Braves tonight as they kick off a three game set at CBP.

I was having a conversation with a friend over the weekend about how watching the Phillies play quasi-meaningless baseball over the past week has been somewhat enjoyable — “stress-free baseball,” was how it was described. Philly winning series in dramatic fashion tends to help as well.

We get to watch Dom Brown develop before our eyes — or not — and he’ll get the chance to bat second this evening as the Phillies look to play spoiler to the Braves’ wild card aspirations. Vance Worley (6-6, 3.63) will take on Ben Sheets (3-1, 1.46) in the first of three tonight. Raker Erik Kratz gets the night off this evening in favor of Worley’s battery mate Brian Schneider.

The lineup:

7:05 from the Bank. We can always get behind beating the Barves.
