Blue Jays at Phillies: August 18th to August 19th

Tuesday and Wednesday 7:05
Citizens Bank Park - Philadelphia, PA

Blue Jays 65-54, 2nd Place in the A.L. East, 1 game behind the Yankees
Phillies 46-72, 5th Place in the N.L. East, 17 games behind the Mets

Blue Jays Probables:  R.A. Dickey (7-10, 3.96), Mark Buehrle (13-5, 3.31)
Phillies Probables:  Aaron Nola (3-1, 4.25), Adam Morgan (3-4, 4.11)

At the Ballpark:  It's a quick two game homestand, but both nights have something special for the fans.  Tonight is Larry Bowa bobble head night.  It's a sure sign your team is struggling when the sole bobble head representative for the season is your bench coach.  Tomorrow night is Star Wars night at the ballpark with visitors making appearances from a galaxy far, far away.
