Astros 45-98, 5th Place in the N.L. Central, 41 1/2 games behind the Reds
Phillies Probables: Tyler Cloyd (1-1, 4.24), Cole Hamels (14-6, 3.03), Kyle Kendrick (9-10, 3.83), Roy Halladay (10-7, 4.01)

At the Ballpark: There's actually way too much going on at Minute Maid this weekend to completely list everything out, so here are the highlights. The first 10,000 fans will receive an Astros fleece blanket on Friday night and the first 10,000 fans will receive a Los Astros t-shirt on Saturday night. Sunday is dog day at the park, which I'm assuming means that man's best friend will be allowed to roam the grandstands.
And it's weird to think this is the last time the Phillies and Astros will face off in a pure National League contest. The Astros will be moving to the American League next year, and the 2013 schedule doesn't have these two teams meeting up at all.
