Hot on the heels of last night's thrilling come-from-behind victory over Derek Lowe and the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Phillies attempt to go ahead 2-0 in the series before the ink has even dried on the stories of Pat Burrell and Chase Utley's 6th inning heroics late last night.

Last night the Phillies defeated a grizzled playoff veteran. Today, they take on talented youth in the form of Chad Billingsley. The Phillies counter with Brett Myers, whose Game Two NLDS performance did a good deal to calm the nerves of fans throughout the Delaware Valley, although we'd all be lying if we said we were COMPLETELY confident in Brett's ability to stave off a meltdown...

Hopefully Ryan Howard can get it going today. All of the top six hitters in the Phillies lineup have at least one home run this postseason, save for Howard (Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Burrell, Werth).
