This week's home series against the Dodgers has been almost an exact mirror of last week's road set in Los Angeles -- timely hitting vs. lack thereof, late inning dramatics for the home team, and total domination in the win/loss column.
Tonight the Phillies go for the four game sweep, effectively negating the four-game butt-whoopin' that they took in L.A. earlier this month.
Red-hot Brett Myers squares off against young Chad Billingsley.
The Phillies enter the night just a half-game back of the Mets, and could go into their two game series with the Mets a half-game ahead with a win and a Mets loss. It's funny how no one seems to want to take control of this division.
