- Phillies 7-Brewers 3 (Game 1); Phillies 5-Brewers 0 (4th Inning, Game 2):
The loss column is the most imperative number to keep track of because a game yet to be played can still be a win; a loss cannot be made up. I said before the weekend that if both the Mets and Phillies took care of business, they'd be in playoff position by Monday----Blog 9/12. If the score of the second game holds, the Phillies will be two games behind the Mets in the loss column, and tied with the Brewers in the loss column; and the Mets will be two games ahead of the Brewers in the loss column.
If the second game stays as it is now, I would keep my eyes open for tomorrow's headlines for some kind of Brewers explosion between players; or between a player and the manager; or something. With the way they're always infighting and are essentially leaderless in the manager's office, it's not going to take much (if anything) to set something off and then they're really going to collapse on and off the field and it's going to get real ugly, real fast in Milwaukee.
