Tonight belongs to the National League as the Phillies and the Dodgers try to advance to the Championship series with one more win. I beg of both lagging teams, can we please have a Divison series go beyond 3 games? Just one, please? Show you care, dammit! And should the Phillies win, look out for Daulario. • Phillies at Brewers, 6:35 pm ET on TBS "Later today, the Phils will look to close out the divisional series with the Brewers. Up 2-0 in a best-of-5, there are still some questions about the hitting, with all of the Phillies' runs coming in two of the 16 innings they've come to the plate. I'm still falling on the side of, 'they're winning, and the pitching has been great, so there's no need in bitching.'" [The 700 Level Club] "Those who wanted Brewers interim manager Dale Sveum to shake up his lineup for Game 3 of the NLDS against Philadelphia in an attempt to get the bats going can forget it. Sveum told us before the team's workout today at Miller Park that he plans no shakeups for the must-win game against the Phillies tomorrow. Other than substituting Bill Hall for Craig Counsell and Rickie Weeks for Ray Durham, which Sveum always does against lefties (Jamie Moyer is pitching), he said he is planning no changes." [Brewers Blog] • Cubs at Dodgers, 10:05 pm ET on TBS "If Lou Piniella is referred to the skipper of the team, the Chicago Cubs might as well be a ship.And that ship is sinking fast. Much like the feeling in our hearts. Since the beginning of the Wild Card era, sixteen teams trailed 0-2 in the NLDS. Only three teams were able to force game four and no one was even able to force a fifth game, let alone win it." [My Thoughts on the Cubs] "Is this happening? Are the Dodgers really up two games to none against the Cubs in the National League Division Series? It’s hard to believe, but we are just one game away from advancing to the NLCS after Thursday night’s 10-3 win. The Dodgers used the same ingredients to win game two that they used in the game one victory: hitting, pitching, and some help from the Cubs." [Rockin' the Ravine]
