The Phillies playoff hopes are on life support after losing to Atlanta again. Last night’s 7-2 Braves win over the Fightin’s leaves Atlanta’s magic number at one. A Braves victory tonight would clinch the NL East title for the club and leave the Phillies out of the postseason for the 10th year in a row. The Pirates, by the way, lost to the Chicago Cubs, 3-2.
