Re: Phillies/Reds preview from the Phillies perspective...
This is going to be one great series.
Both teams are looking to prove that they're removed from their slumps and are on the rise again.
The Phillies don't make base-running mistakes, while the REDS are extremely agressive on the base-paths. The Phillies' Catchers are poor at throwing out runners while the REDS' Catchers have been very good this season (though a lot of that was Hanigan).
I can't see either team sweeping this series. Taking two out of three from the Phillies would be a very good outcome. Our best chance at a win in the series is tonight. Lose tonight, and we lose the series.
