Game Thread 9/9: Braves at Phillies

It's time for the rubber match in the battle for futility. Watch it with us.

It's all come down to this.

The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies wrap up a three-game series on Wednesday night, and the loser of the rubber match will take pole position in the race for the basement. Currently, the Phillies hold a one-game lead on Atlanta for the worst record in baseball, but given the recent play of the Braves, that gap could lose for good if the road team falls this evening.

Regardless, we will be here throughout the night, so jump in with us to talk about the action. Let's do this together.
