For one last time, the Phillies will take the field in 2013. In a season to forget, it is also a day to simply savor the fact that for another five months, the Phillies won’t take the field.

It has been a trying season for the Phillies (73-88) but even as they prepare for their final game against the Braves (95-66) there is one last chance to end the season on a good note.

Zach Miner (0-1, 3.08 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Miner allowed one run on four hits in four innings in his last start against the Marlins, taking a no-decision. Miner last faced the Braves on Aug. 14, pitching 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. In his career against the Braves, Miner is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two relief appearances. His last came at Turner Field.

The Phillies will face right-hander Julio Teheran (13-8, 3.09 ERA). Teheran allowed one run on four hits in six innings in his last start, getting a win against the Cubs. Teheran last faced the Phillies on Aug. 12, allowing four runs on six hits in six innings in a loss. In his career against the Phillies, Teheran is 0-2 with a 5.27 ERA. At Turner Field, he is 7-4 with a 3.33 ERA.

Game notes, lineups and more are available after the jump.

Game Notes:

  • Milestone Watch: Jimmy Rollins is one home run away from 200 for his career. Chase Utley is two doubles away from 300 for his career.
  • With a win, the Phillies can finish the season with an even .500 record under manager Ryne Sandberg. The Phillies are 20-21 since Sandberg took over in August.
  • Jimmy Rollins is 4-for-6 against Teheran with a double, a home run and two RBI.
