The Phillies and Braves are locked up 6-6 on the season with only two series left: now and the last three games of the season in Atlanta. The Phillies are 7.5 games ahead of the Braves with their magic number set at 18.

The Phillies have a huge opportunity to put the Braves down for good but Atlanta also has the chance to actually gain ground and potentially sit 4.5 games back with 23 games left for the Phils and 20 left for the Braves.
