The Reds might lead the NL Central, and the Phillies might simply be searching for a respectable finish to the 2012 season, but Philadelphia's recent history suggests Cincinnati won't write off this four-game set.

Although they haven't met yet this season, the Phils have won the last six games they've played against Cincinnati, with the Reds losing 15 of their last 19 games played in Philadelphia. That's great news for Philadelphia, who returns from a road trip for a weeklong homestand against two division leaders in Cincinnati and Washington.

Roy Halladay takes the mound for Philly, and although he's pitched quality starts in his last four performances, lowering his ERA from 4.33 to 3.80, he's taken the loss behind two-run Philadelphia outings in two of those performances. The Phillies will hope for better success against Mike Leake, who just worked a one-run, four-hit complete game against the Mets in his last outing.
