Phillies Look for Series Sweep of Nationals Behind Blanton

Same old with the lineup except Brian Schneider is in for Carlos Ruiz. Interesting that Charlie wouldn’t give Dom Brown a start today, seeing as Yunesky Maya is a smallish righty lacking overpowering stuff, but I can’t really fault Manuel for staying with success. Ibanez has been on fire lately.

Blanton throws a perfect first inning, the first scoreless first inning for the Phillies opposition since Monday.

Everybody’s favorite team to root for, the New York Mets, are up 2-1 early over the Braves. Hopefully R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball confuses Atlanta enough for the Mets to steal one.
