If the Phillies can find a way to beat the Dodgers this evening, they'd move to 36 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 1977 season when they finished 101-61.

They've got a good shot too with Cliff Lee on the mound tonight. We checked in with Bodog to see what kind of odds Lee was getting, and as of 6:30 EST they liked Lee to the tune of -185 on the moneyline. On the road. That's amazing.

Lee (11-7, 2.96) will take on left-hander Ted Lilly (7-11, 4.86) in the second of three at Chavez Ravine.

Cliff is coming off his fifth shutout of the season, when he handled the Giants in San Fran last Thursday. He's made one career start at Dodger stadium and allowed 1 ER over 7.1 IP in a no-decision.

Another late one from the left coast. 10:10 EST. Who is staying up late with me?
