Why the Philadelphia Phillies Will Win Tonight

Billy MulliganContributor IOctober 3, 2008

The Philadelphia Phillies will go into Milwaukee tomorrow night and win a close one.

How do I know this?

It's simple.

The Phills have Jamie Moyer on the mound.

The "Old Man" pitched twice this season against the Brew Crew and allowed only one run in the first game and three in the second.

I predict that, tomorrow night, he gives up only two.

The real story tomorrow will be the Phillies' bats vs. the Dave Bush "league." One of the lineup changes to look for will hopefully be Gregg Dobbs at third. He has faced Bush 13 times in his career and hit the ball six times, with no strikeouts and two home runs—he only had nine this season. By the way, that's a .462 batting average and a 1.000 slugging percentage.

The other guys that will have a great game will be Pat "the bat" Burrell and Chase "the face of the team" Utley.

Burrell has faced Bush 13 times in his career and only hit three home runs with a 3.85 batting average. Utley has faced Bush nine times, with three walks (walks do not count as at-bats) and four hits—two singles, one double, and one home run.

So, on Saturday night, you can relax Phillies fans.

And if you are bored because you do not have to watch this game, check out ESPN at 6 PM EDT. Vandy and Auburn are going at it, and it should be a great game.
