The scuffling Phillies head to Atlanta for the final three games of the regular season against a Braves team left fighting for its postseason life, leading the Cardinals by just one game for the National League Wild Card spot.
You're going to hear lily-livered cowards talk about laying down for the Braves this weak to ease their entry into the playoffs ahead of the red-hot Cardinals. I want none of that. I want 102 victories, which would set a franchise record for wins and give Charlie Manuel sole possession of the winningest Phillies manager spot.
To that end, Cliff Lee takes the hill looking for his 17th victory and a desperate last-gasp Cy Young Award push. The Braves counter with Randall Delgado.
Discuss the game below.
