With the possibility of clinching home field advantage for the entire playoffs, Charlie still sent out Utley, Howard, and Ibanez after last night’s celebration. Ben Francisco, Domonic Brown, and Greg Dobbs will start in tonight’s game. I would have liked to have seen Mike Sweeney and Ross Gload play, but I suspect they’ll get plenty of AB’s over the last few games regardless.
Hopefully the three lefties can pad their stats off the softballer, Jason Marquis. I can’t imagine Oswalt goes more than 5 or 6 innings.
