End of the Beginning: Phillies at Braves Game Thread, September 28, 2011

New, comments

162 games, and it comes to this, a meaningful contest between two teams with things to play for (although some things more urgent than others).

The Braves hope to win and guarantee at worst a tie for the National League Wild Card spot, while the Phillies look to win their 102nd contest of the season, a franchise record that would also give skipper Charlie Manuel the all-time record for victories as Phillies manager.

The Braves send ace Tim Hudson to the hill to take on Joe Blanton, who will allegedly give way to Cole Hamels about midway through for a few postseason tune-up innings and a possible shot at his 15th victory of the season.

Discuss the game below. See you in October!
