Post to Twitter

The Phillies have faced the Seattle Mariners, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals in their last six series. In the not so distant past, the thought of the Phillies winning five of them would have been a ridiculous thought.

But after Saturday, the Phillies have indeed won five of the last six series. A.J. Burnett allowed one run in seven innings while hits from Ryan Howard and Domonic Brown backed the gem in a 3-1 win over the Nationals on Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park. Read the rest of this entry »

Post to Twitter

The Phillies trailed 6-1 after five innings and had one hit, a first-inning home run by Chase Utley. It was a story familiar to fans this season.

But in the final four innings, the rally was on and the deficit was gone in the ninth when Marlon Byrd tied the game with a single. Three batters later, Utley was walked with two outs to get to Ryan Howard, just like on Tuesday night against the Astros.

Howard ended the game with a walk-off single, giving the Phillies a 7-6 come-from-behind win over the Mets on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

The Phillies won the game against the NL East-leading Nationals, 10-4, but lost Cliff Lee to an elbow injury, icing on the cake after failing to make a trade before Thursday afternoon’s deadline. Read the rest of this entry »
