After a three game series with the Marlins ended quite badly yesterday, Wild Card-leading Milwaukee comes to Philadelphia for a four game series four games ahead of the Phillies in the Wild Card standings. Almost seems too perfect... a great set-up for 2007 dramatics, or crushing 2003-era disappointment. Not to mention that the Phillies sit tied with Houston in the Wild Card race, with St. Louis just a half game behind both. It won't be easy.

Adding more difficulty to the situation is the Brewers' starting pitcher tonight -- Ben Sheets. The fireballing righty takes on not-so-fireballing lefty Jamie Moyer.

The Phillies absolutely must win at least 3 of 4 in this series to have a shot. A four game sweep? Even better.
