Gamethread: Phils @ A's, 6/26/08

The losing streak is over and the division lead is back up to two games, but it's not clear the Philllies are out of the woods quite yet. Last night's reconfigured lineup scored four runs, the team's best in a week, but also left 11 men on base and went 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position (and one of those hits resulted in an inning-ending out at home plate). Today they try to improve that performance against Rich Harden, who would be Oakland's undisputed ace were he able to stay healthy for more than a few months at a time. Adam Eaton goes for the Phillies, under renewed pressure to perform after Kyle Kendrick's superb effort on Wednesday.
