The visiting Phillies are even on the season at 33-33, putting them in fourth in the NL East. However, because none of the teams ahead of them in the division have broken out so far, Philadelphia is a mere four games out of first place.
That first place team is today's host, the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs are 40-28, having moved 1/2 game ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates this week.
These teams split a doubleheader on Friday, and Chicago leads the season series 3-2.
Paul Owens sends first-round rookie pick Mark Langston (1-4, 6.75) to the mound. Langston missed a month of action after being hit by a pitch in his second start, and has struggled to find his groove since returning. Lee Elia will call on Alejandro Pena (6-6, 2.46), whose won-lost record does not reflect that he has been the Cubs' most consistent starter this season.
Neither team reports any injuries.
