Phillies and Padres Battle

24 Sep

The Phils may have lost yesterday versus the Nationals, but their 8-2 road trip helped propel them back into the NL East race and deep into the Wildcard chase.  The San Diego Padres are still .5 games ahead but have now lost 3 games in a row.

The momentum is definitely with the Phils the rest of way, despite actually being down in the standings.  The reason?  The schedule is definitely in favor of your pinstriped crusaders, with them having 6 home games against Atlanta and Washington.  Atlanta is a decent team, but the Phils have the advantage of hopefully some good fans.  The Padres, meanwhile travel for their final 7 games to San Francisco and Milwaukee.  The Brewers only chance to make the playoffs is to win every single game they have left, so hopefully the Brewers can try and make a run at it and help the Phillies out.

It would be sick if the Phils and Padres ended up in a tie though…
