The Phillies try once again to clinch a playoff spot; on getaway day this afternoon, there are several important games. All times Eastern.
2 p.m., CSN Philadelphia, FSN Houston: Phillies at Astros. For the third straight day, the Phillies try to clinch a playoff berth. And beat the woeful Astros. And this time, try to avoid getting swept.
3:30 p.m., CSN California, FSN West: Angels at Athletics. The Angels still hang in there in the AL West race; three games behind the Rangers, if they can hold that deficit (or smaller) until they meet Texas for the season's last three games, they have a shot.
