ATLANTA - The Phillies were in flight somewhere between Atlanta and Philadelphia on Sunday when they learned they would be playing the Cincinnati Reds in the National League division series. Their opponent was not determined until San Francisco reliever Brian Wilson struck out San Diego's Will Venable at 7:11 p.m. in the East, a pitch that prompted an eruption of beer spray in the Braves' clubhouse at Turner Field. The Giants' 3-0 win in San Francisco, coupled with the Braves' 8-7 win over the Phillies, clinched a wild-card berth for Atlanta and clarified a muddled picture.

ATLANTA - Sitting in the visitors' dugout at Turner Field, Scott Proefrock gazed across the sun-soaked field and focused his eyes high above the leftfield wall. With a nod of the head, he pointed to the 16 pennants plastered above the lower seating bowl, each of them bearing the year of a Braves division title. "The most difficult thing in sports is not to get good," the Phillies assistant general manager said. "It's to stay good. " At four in a row, the Phillies have a long way to go before they can equal the Braves' run of 14 consecutive division titles (1991-2005)

ATLANTA - It seems it wasn't enough for the Phillies to leave the rest of the National League in the dust with their late-season sprint. Apparently they also would enjoy rendering the pitching staff of their National League division series opponent weary and overtaxed. Along with its many talents, Charlie Manuel's team has a devious side, a penchant for creating chaos and uncertainty, which was a result of the Phillies' 7-0 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night at Turner Field.

So what do the Phillies owe the San Diego Padres and the great moral compass of baseball when the Phils begin their final three games of the season Friday night against the Atlanta Braves? As the weekend opens, the Padres are desperately trying to worm their way into the playoffs. They could do so by catching the San Francisco Giants for the NL West title, or by catching the Braves for the league's wild-card spot. The latter won't happen, however, if the Braves win at least two games against the Phillies.

ON THE LIST of meaningful things you could be doing this weekend, watching the Phillies play the Braves ranks just ahead of organizing your penny collection in chronological order. The last time a Philadelphia sports franchise traveled to Atlanta for a sporting event this irrelevant, the Soul lost to the Georgia Force, 63-62. (Where have you gone, Arena Football?) But while the Phillies, who have already clinched homefield advantage throughout the National League playoffs, might not have a lot to play for, that doesn't mean their final regular-season series is without any intrigue.

The lead in the National League West has changed hands four times in 5 days. So with a week left to play, the Phillies still don't know whether they'll be facing the Padres, Giants or Reds in the first round of the playoffs. The wild card also remains up for grabs among San Diego, San Francisco and Cincinnati. About the only certainty seems to be that another late charge by the Rockies will come up short. Colorado is four games behind in the wild-card standings with just a week left to play.
