The Phillies did something they hadn't accomplished since the 70's. The feat was sweeping the Padres in 4 straight games in San Diego.
The Philies winning train is rolling onto the next stop in what is shaping up to be quite a magical season.
It's Arizona now in the crosshairs. The Dbacks are just above the Padres, who now occupy the bottom of the NL West.
It is interesting both the Dbacks and the Padres are coming off of 4 game losing streaks. The Diamondbacks were just swept in 3 straight over the weekend by the New York Mets in New York.
It's Cliff Lee on the mound for the Phils tonight. Lee is 2-1 with a 3.91 ERA. He will face Ian Kennedy for the Dbacks, he is 2-1 with a 5.64 ERA.
