Boston Laser Look Ahead: Red-Hot Phillies Continue Push Toward Playoffs The Philadelphia Phillies trailed the Atlanta Braves for much of the season, but are showing now why they are the two-time defending NL champions.

The Phillies are the hottest team in baseball and on Wednesday night they try to run their winning streak to 10 games as they go for the sweep of the Braves, a series that has effectively put the Phils in the driver's seat to win the NL East.

The Philadelphia-Atlanta showdown is just one of three games worth keeping an eye on Wednesday night as pointed out by the Boston Laser Look Ahead. Elsewhere in baseball, A.J. Burnett is trying to show to the Yankees he can be relied on in the playoffs as he goes for New York against Tampa Bay. Also, NL Cy Young hopeful Ubaldo Jimenez takes the ball for the Rockies against the Diamondbacks as they hunt down a playoff berth.
