MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

We knew this series would be tough for the Phillies. The Dodgers are a very good team that has established itself as the class of the National League until someone else knocks them off their perch.

We’ll see if they can grab one back today.
