The Phillies have beaten Florida 5-2, bringing them into back into a tie with the Dodgers, givung us the following scenarios:

Best case: The Dodgers pull 1/2 game ahead of San Diego, the Padres drop into third place in this playoff race.

Worst case: The Dodgers fall 1.5 games back of the Padres and .5 behind the Phillies. I'm forced to bring out the tragic number.

The Dodgers magic/tragic number is 10 over the Phillies.
