Lowe Life: Braves at Phillies Game Thread, September 5, 2011

New, comments

The Braves stop in for a brief three game Phillies homestand, and will play tonight with a potentially yucky weather forecast (more rain, yeah!). Bet your life they'll do everything they can to get this in.

Cliff Lee, looking to continue his hot August run into September, takes the ball against alleged intoxicated driving specialist Derek Lowe, who has an irritating 2.84 ERA against the Phillies this year in three starts despite only seven strikeouts in 19 innings. Woof.

For perspective purposes: Even if the Braves sweep, they remain six games back in the loss column. If the Phillies win the series, and particularly if they sweep, this thing is awfully close to done.

Discuss the game belowe.
