After a topsy-turvy two game series against the New York Mets, no rest for the weary as the Phillies roll into Wrigley Field, where the Cubs, winners of five games in a row, have been nearly unbeatable this year (49-19).
Game One of the series might be the Phillies best chance to win a game, with ace Cole Hamels facing the inexplicably 15-5, 2.85 ERA Ryan Dempster.
Looking at the whole series, you gotta be pretty happy with a split.
