The Phillies have been hanging tough with the Cubs so far this series. The Phillies do need a win today to split the series with the Cubs at 2 games a peice. Lastnights walk off walk for the Cubs in the bottom of the night was a tough way to lose for the Phillies and you can bet they are gonna come out with everything they can in todays afternoon game. On the mound for the Phillies today is right hander Kyle Lohse. Lohse is 6-12 with a 4.58 era this season. Lohse has given up a lot of hits compared to his innings pitched and that is one of the main reasons why his era is not so great. As for the Cubbies they are now tied for first place with the Brewers after their win lastnight and a Brewers loss. You know the Cubs have been playing some very good baseball ever since the dug out brawl and the Piniella explostion at the umpire. On the mound today for the Cubs is lefty Sean Marshall. Marshall is 5-4 with a 3.10 era this season. This afternoons game should be an exciting game and a good end of the series as both of these teams will slug it out in Chicago.
