Two nights after the Phillies improbable defeat of 2007 Cy Young Award winner and Hottest Pitcher on the Planet CC Sabathia, the Phillies head to Milwaukee to attempt to complete a three game sweep of the Brewers and set a date with either the Dodgers (likely) or the Cubs (wha' happen'?) in the NLCS.

Jamie Moyer, moundsman during the Phillies division clinchers in 2007 and 2008, goes for the Phillies against righty Dave Bush. In his previous start in Philadelphia, Bush was touched for three runs over six innings. Hopefully the Phillies can do better than that tonight.

Fun fact: Despite winning both games, the Phillies have only scored runs in two innings in this series: a three run third on Wednesday, and a five run second on Thursday.
