One night after suffering a walk-off loss in 11 innings, the Phillies nonchalantly played through another nine innings. The result was not unfamiliar.

The 11th shutout of the season came just 84 games into the season as the Marlins claimed the series with a 5-0 win over the Phillies at Marlins Park. Read the rest of this entry »

So for the third straight day, the Phillies suffered a loss, continuing to drive last week’s five-game winning streak further into the rear-view mirror, falling to the Marlins on Monday by a score of 4-0 at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »
