After Saturday's ugly loss to the Braves, Charlie Manuel said his team still believes they have a shot at making the postseason. He also realizes their chances are slimming with each passing day that they fail to make up ground.

While Roy Halladay's struggles continue, Cliff Lee (6-7, 3.27) has been masterful over the past few weeks. He'll need that to continue today as he takes on Braves right-hander Tim Hudson (15-6, 3.77).

Today is the final weekend game at Citizens Bank Park this season. Andrew Bynum reportedly didn't make it into town to throw out the first pitch but kids will still get their Cole Hamels action figurine.

1:35. Need a 10-game winning streak here or something.

Today's Lineup:

#Phillies lineup vs. #Braves: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Ruiz C, Brown RF, Mayberry CF, Frandsen 3B, Lee P.
