In Game: Phils look good ; 7 teams within 3.5 of Wild Card

This is an in game post on the Philly Sports Talk Now! blog: The Phillies are playing the Dodgers tough. The Fightins went behind early 3-0 in the second inning but stormed back to lead the Dodgers 5-3 as of the time of this post. The Phils can set themselves up nicely to stay in the hunt of the wild card or the Mets with a win here. They have to start playing every game like they want to win it all, because there are so many teams in the hunt of the wild card in the National League. It is a gridlock for the wild card spot, there are now 7 teams within 3.5 games of the wild card as of tonight in the National League.

It is a must that the Phils go at least 7-3 on this home stand. Less than this may spell the end for the race to the post season. The good thing is that the Mets are playing the San Diego Padres who are battling back and forth with the Phils for the wild card lead, Atlanta has found new life and is back up and tied with the Phils for the W C race going into tonight both 1 game back.

Stay tuned to Philly Sports Talk Now! for our next podcast/webcast on Thursday night. We'll go over possible playoff scenarios and games leading up to the race for the wild card for the Phillies, we'll talk also about the Eagles and look at them in the preseason games. Jim Dogg has his college picks and all of this coming up on our next show!
