PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Just two games left in the regular season for the Phillies and they will play the first of those two tonight in Washington.
The Phillies 2-0 win over the Nationals (who clinched NL East anyway when the Braves lost) last night was their 81st of the season, assuring Charlie Manuel’s squad of at least a .500 finish and they need just one more win to assure a winning record.
Phillies will lean on the bullpen tonight as right-hander B.J. Rosenberg will get the start, his first in the Major Leagues. Rosenberg is 1-2 with a 6.86 ERA in 21 relief appearances in 2012.
The Nationals will start left-hander Tom Gorzelanny, he is 4-2 here in 2012. He is stepping in for Gio Gonzalez, who was scratched after the Nats clinched the division. The Nats saving Gonzalez for the post-season.
