Old man LaTroy Hawkins is holding down 9th inning duties and set-up man Adam Ottavino is becoming one of the best in the business. The starting pitchers going in the series aren't anything special, but they're completely capable of shutting down the Phillies offense. Of course, the love child of Jose Mesa and Adam Eaton could probably shutdown the Phils offense too.
One team will score at least one run more than the other team in all three contents.
