Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Finally free of the Mets, the Phillies can now suck against another NL East team.

After what seems like an eternity, the Phillies are finally facing a team that's not the Mets. Thank God.

Of course now they're facing another NL East team, the Washington Nationals. With this series, the Phillies could inch closer to fourth place, a position the Nats now inhabit. Or they could create a much larger gap between them and the Nationals and set up long term residence in fifth place.

Today's Lineup

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES WASHINGTON NATIONALS
Jimmy Rollins - SS Denard Span - CF
Chase Utley - 2B Anthony Rendon - 3B
