The Phillies will attempt to complete a four-game sweep of the Reds today in an early 12:35 start time in Cincinnati. They'll turn to rookie right-hander Vance Worley who the team has fared quite well with over the past three months.
Some fantastic Worley stats from the game notes: The Fightins have won in each of Worley's last 12 starts which is the longest streak for any Phils starter this season. The streak is the longest for any MLB rookie since 1986 when Texas won 12 straight for Bobby Witt. Vance is 7-0, 2.30 ERA over that current stretch (since June 18th). The last time the Phils lost in a Worley start was all the way back on May 29th against the New York Mets. The only Phillies pitcher with a longer single-season streak is Steve Carlton who had a 15-start streak in 1972.
With another win today, the Phillies would move to 41 games over .500, the highest number of games above .500 the team has ever been. They reached that epic level twice during the 1976 season. But never higher. Let's shoot for a new record, eh?
Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Vance Worley.
It's a good time to be a Phillies fan. That's for sure.
Today's Lineup: Victorino, Martinez (3B), Utley, Howard, Pence, Ibanez, Schneider, Valdez (SS), and Worley.
12:35 start in Cincy.

Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”
President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA Championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.”
Curry told reporters Friday that he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.
Curry received support from fellow NBA players including 4-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most re-tweeted post ever.
Golden State's statement:
5-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant:
Golden State power forward and teammate Draymond Green:
Sixers forward James Michael McAdoo, who signed a two-way contract with the team in August:
Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal:
Two-time All-Star Baron Davis:
After Trump's comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina's Men's Basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the Nation’s capital anytime soon. Except the Patriots.
