Braves Vs. Phillies: Game Two Of Possible Wild Card Preview

The Atlanta Braves will look to bounce back from Friday night's loss to the Philadelphia Phillies when the two teams take the field for the second of a three-game series in Philadelphia.

The Phillies struck first with a 6-2 victory on the strength of four homeruns from their streaking lineup. Both teams had six hits but the Phillies' guaranteed at least four runs with theirs.

It won't be easy for the Braves' lineup to get on track as the Phillies will trot out Roy Halladay against the Braves' Mike Minor. Halladay has struggled this year with only a 10-9 record and a 4.03 ERA but he's still Roy Halladay, one of the best in the business. Minor counters with a record of 9-10 and a 4.31 ERA.

The Braves are clinging to a Wild Card spot while the Phillies are only three games back.
