2012 marks just the 4th time in the last 15 seasons (since 1998) that the Phillies
will enter the All-Star break with a sub .500 record (others years: 2006, 40-47; 2002: 39-47 & 2000:39-47).
Philadelphia will not reach 40 wins prior to the break for the first time in 10 seasons (last 2002).
The Phillies need a win today to avoid being swept by Atlanta in Citizens Bank Park for the first time since the 2007 season opener, April 2-5.
