Records: Phillies 20-16, Tied for 1st place in NL East; Reds 20-17, 4th place in NL Central (Each team's standings gives you an idea as to how mediocre the NL East has been so far this year).
Former Phillies with the Reds: Unbelievably, current Reds' reliever Arthur Rhodes (2006) has a 0.75 ERA in 16 appearances this year. First base coach Billy Hatcher (1994), and broadcaster Jeff Brantley (1999-2000) both spent time with the Phils.
The Phillies Room Keys to the Games: The Phillies need to continue the momentum started with the 4-game sweep of the Nationals. I'm looking forward to tonight's match-up of Hamels vs. Cueto.
Reds Probables: Johnny Cueto, Micah Owings, Aaron Harang
