Postseason '08, Here we come!

The Phillies Clinched their second straight playoff berth as phightins turned two on a heroic play by the little man J-Roll.

Outtaherephils player of the game: Pedro Feliz

Pedro provided the RBI double in the 8th which provided the run that got Brad Lidge his 41st save of the season. This run proved to be the run which won the game.

Today the Phillies and Kyle Kendrick (11-9) square-off (or should i say "sleep-off") against the Nationals and Odalis Perez (7-11). This game virtually means nothing, win or lose, we are still going to the postseason.

Quick Stat: DC Pitcher with most wins-Tim Redding (10-11)
     DC Pitcher with best record- Joel Hanrahan (6-3)
The Phillies will most likely win today as we have a young pitcher and a truckload of offense. 
This is my prediction:

Kendrick- 6.1IP, 4H, 2R, 2K,1BB
Perez- 4IP, 6H, 5R, 1K, 3BB

Starting Lineup Predictions

Rollins: 2-5, 2B
Werth: 1-4,K
Utley: 3-5, HR (34), 2B
Howard: 3-4, HR (49, 50),BB
Burrell: 1-3, BB
