AFTERNOON DELIGHT!

The Phillies take on the Reds in the rubber game of their three game series this afternoon at Great American Holy Crap We're on a River in Ohio Ball Park, sponsored by Skyline Chili.

Joe Blanton, he of the 6.86 ERA, starts for the Phillies against Micah Owings, he of the .909 OPS, goes for the Reds. Likelihood of an Owings home run off Blanton: 30%. Extra base hit: 75%.

A win today would be nice heading into New York and the red-hot Bronx Buzzsaw.
