The Phightin’ Phillies are coming off back-to-back dramatic wins. Could this be the return of the old Phillies? The energy in the ninth inning of last night’s game was electric, and the Phillies need to carry that momentum forward. If they keep playing like that, they can slowly find their way back into wild card contention. But for now, they can only take one game at a time. Next up is Cliff Lee and Zack Greinke.
Greinke has been in the conversation of trade talks recently. Greinke hasn’t pitched since July 13 because of his struggles during the month of July. The Brewers decided to give Greinke extra rest,believing he will dominate like he had earlier in the season. Expect a lot of strikeouts for Greinke; he averages 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings.
