Game Thread 9/29: Braves vs. Phillies

The final NL East game in Turner Field history is going down tonight. Will the Braves come out victorious?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight's a special night -- it's the final night of *exclusively* National League baseball at Turner Field! I always figured that it would be a bit strange to see this season end with an interleague matchup, but that's how baseball is nowadays. Someone's gotta play an interleague game every day, and the Braves will be one of those teams over the weekend.

Additionally, it's also the final night of Ryan Howard at Turner Field (if he comes on as a pinch hitter), so here's hoping that he doesn't decide to end his long and destructive time as a visitor here with a bang. Hopefully it's a fun game for the Braves!

Here are the lineups:
