Decisive game tonight

The Phillies and Braves will end their series tonight in Philadelphia as Buddy Carlyle faces off against ageless Jamie Moyer. Moyer has been on tear against NL East teams, a streak that hopefully will continue. This is a crucial game for both teams. If the Phils win they will again leapfrog over Atlanta into 2nd place in the East. If the Braves win they will put distance between themselves and Philadelphia, but also stay on pace with the Mets. The Mets have lost 3 straight. I think Ryan Howard will hit a HR tonight and the Phillies will hang on in the 9th to defeat the Braves 7-6. Hopefully I improve my predictions to 1-1 after that Marlins disaster on Thursday. GO PHILLIES!
