Citizens Bank Park - Philadelphia, PA

Marlins 8-20, 5th Place in the N.L. East, 10 games behind the Braves
Phillies 12-16, Tied for 3rd Place in the N.L. East, 5 1/2 games behind the Braves

At the Ballpark:  Tomorrow night is Teacher Appreciation Night at the ballpark and the Phillies will host a Youth Baseball Celebration on Saturday night.  Sunday is Mother's Appreciation Day with all women 15 and older receiving a Chase Utley Tote Bag.  Sunday afternoon's game has been pushed back an hour to accommodate the annual Broad Street Run.

In my youth, I participated in the Broad Street Run twice.  Now older and wiser, I have more than enough sense to realize that running 10 miles all at once isn't really that much fun.
