It's the third week of June and the Phillies are fewer games out of first place than they are under .500.


A night after rain postponed the second game in a four-game series between the Phillies and Braves, Cliff Lee will take the mound against a Braves team he's historically held in check.


The Nationals, with their enhanced rotation and bullpen, look like the class of the NL East, at least on paper.

But the Phillies' bigger concern moving forward will be the Braves.
