Since the Phillies seem to have found the secret to success in September, don't lose...ever, the Dodgers once again find themselves in a situation where if they lose, they're out of a playoff spot.

Best case scenario: Dodgers pull .5 games ahead of the Padres and Phillies.

Worst case scenario: Dodgers fall .5 back of the Phillies and 1.5 back of the Padres.

The magic number is nine over the Phillies.

Zack Duke takes on Jake Peavy at 7:05 in San Diego.

Please don't suck Brad Penny.
