Is relying on snowmen innings a sustainable way to win a division title?

More salamis, please!

The Phillies outplayed the Brewers for 8½ innings last night and still lost by 3...maybe the Brewers will be lucky in the second half! Philadelphia sends out Aaron Nola (6-6, 3.59) - a solid starter - to face Milwaukee's Jimmy Nelson (8-4, 3.30) - also a solid starter. If fifteen runs is the level established for the series last night, I'll take the under today.
