Phillies at Nationals: September 27th through September 29th

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday 7:05

Records: Phillies 93-63, 1st Place in NL East (6 games ahead of the Braves); Nationals 67-89, 5th Place in NL East (26 games behind the Phillies)

1968 Topps #122
Roy Halladay and the Phils will try to clinch the NL East tonight in D.C.  They've already clinched a play-off berth, so there's no danger in me jinxing the team by posting a Gene Mauch card recently purchased at the Valley Forge baseball card show.  Mauch was the first manager of the Nationals' predecessors, the Montral Expos, and when I posted a Mauch card in the last Nationals' series preview post, the Phillies went out and swept them.  A sweep would be nice, but we're really only looking for one more win.  Go Phils!  (I'm assuming that's what Mauch is yelling in this photo.)

Phillies Probables: Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, Joe Blanton
Nationals Probables: John Lannan, Jason Marquis, Ross Detwiler

I just learned the other day that Mauch won manager-of-the-year in 1964!
