Game 28: Atlanta at Phillies...Five in a row???

-- The Phillies go for five wins in a row tonight, after a good win last night where Aaron Rowand hit an opposite-field 2-run home run in the bottom of the 8th inning to put the Phillies in the lead for good. The 5-4 victory came against Atlanta, who has been struggling offensively, wasting a lot of good starting pitching.

-- John Thomson goes for the Braves tonight, and he's simply been stellar, with a 1.32 ERA and 1.117 WHIP, but has been a bit wild of late(9 walks in the last 12.2 innings) and has yet to finish the 7th inning. The Phils are certainly in position to run him early.

-- Cory Lidle starts for the Phils tonight and, after his negative comments about Bonds, it would be nice to see him come out and go 7 or 8 innings with giving up only 2 runs.

John Thomson(0-1 1.32 ERA, 1.17 WHIP 25Ks, 12 walks) v Cory Lidle(2-3 4.40 ERA, 1.24 WHIP 33Ks, 3 walks)
