Phillies eye sweep in Boston

It's just a two-game trip to Boston for the Philadelphia Phillies, and yet, it could be among the more important series for the club as the final month of the season nears.

A rare sweep of the Red Sox is within the Phillies' sights as the interleague rivals ready for the second contest of the series Wednesday night. Philadelphia last swept Boston over the course of a full series in 2000 despite the teams meeting in 15 of the subsequent 19 years.

In fact, the Red Sox had held a 36-18 edge in their matchups since that sweep, though the Phillies won Tuesday's opener 3-2 after a series of Boston rally attempts in the late innings fizzled out.
