Myers available to pitch tonight

There is a playoff feel at the Bank tonight, with crisp weather, a thick crowd of reporters and rolled-up plastic lining the walls in the Phillies clubhouse. A Phils win or Braves loss would clinch the NL East tonight, of course, and the team trying to sew it up got a piece of good news: Brett Myers is available to pitch tonight, according to pitching coach Rich Dubee. Myers, who strained an upper back muscle and has not pitched since Sept. 12, threw a successful bullpen session Monday. Yesterday, manager Charlie Manuel and Dubee either did not know or would not saw if the righthander would need another bullpen before rejoining the team. The team had been saying all along that they did not expect Myers to pitch until later in the week. A few minutes ago, Dubee confirmed that Myers would, in fact, be in the pen tonight and ready to see game action.
