Three weeks into the 2008 season, neither the Colorado Rockies nor the Philadelphia Phillies have gotten off to stellar starts.

But despite even worse starts last season, they both managed to make the postseason.

The Rockies will try to move above .500 and the Phillies will try to reach the break-even mark tonight when they open a two-game playoff rematch at Coors Field.

Colorado swept Philadelphia in three games in last season's National League division series before going on to sweep Arizona in the league championship series.

The defending NL East champion Phillies avoided a three-game sweep at home Sunday, beating the New York Mets 5-4.

Philadelphia had three homers -- two by Chase Utley -- to increase their major league-leading home run total to 30.
