Records: Phillies 22-17, 1st Place in NL East (1 ½ games ahead of the Mets); Yankees 24-17, 3rd Place in AL East (2 games behind the Blue Jays)
Former Phillies with the Yankees: Since Bobby Abreu departed for the Los Angeles Angels - none.

Notable: I'm not as excited about Interleague play as I used to be (more on that later), but I am excited about Sunday's pitching match-up.

Yankees Probables: A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, CC Sabathia
