PostHeaderIcon Mile High Mayham: Phils salvage finale in crazy game

Post to Twitter

It’s been said before that a win is a win is a win. The Phillies got a win on Sunday, and at the end of the day, that’s all that really matters.

In a game that took four hours, eight minutes to complete, the Phillies pounded out 15 hits and scored 10 runs. The problem was pitching.

The 10 runs were still enough for the Phillies, but barely, as they squeezed out a 10-9 win over the Colorado Rockies in the series finale from Coors Field. Read the rest of this entry »

After a rain-out on Tuesday – the Phillies second of the season already – baseball is back on Wednesday night. The day off certainly comes as an aid for both teams after Monday’s wild game.

Friday night was likely the Phillies most unlikely victory of the season. The bats did enough damage against Jose Fernandez to help the Phillies snap a four-game losing streak.

Finally back in the win column, the Phillies (4-6) look to extend that success on Saturday night. The reeling Miami Marlins (5-6), locked in a five-game losing streak of their own, look to move back into the win column. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.

Jonathan Pettibone (5-4, 4.04 ERA in 2013) gets the start for the Phillies. Pettibone is making his season debut for the Phillies. In two career starts against the Marlins, Pettibone is 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 3-1 with a 2.68 ERA.

The Phillies will face right-hander Nathan Eovaldi (1-1, 3.46 ERA). Eovaldi allowed three runs on six hits in seven innings in a loss to the Padres in his last start. In six career starts against the Phillies, Eovaldi is 1-4 with a 4.13 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 0-1 with a 7.00 ERA.

As the Philadelphia Phillies downward spiral continues, it isn’t hard to look back on 2013 and say good riddance. There isn’t a lot to look forward to and right about now there isn’t a lot of fond memories to look back on.

2013 did provide some false hope. Even in 2012, when the Phillies five-year playoff run ended, they managed to still be somewhat in the race in September. In this case, a strong finish to the first-half of the season made it seem the Phillies still had something left. That wasn’t the case.

Here is the 2013 season: the good, the bad, the happy, the sad and everything in between. Instead of a top-10 games list, this is a top-10 moments list, in reverse order. Read the rest of this entry »

This is it – the final weekend for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2013 season. It has been a long year, that’s for sure. But very shortly, things will all be over.

The Phillies (72-86) enter the final series against the team that controlled the division for much of the year, as the NL East champion Atlanta Braves (93-65) host the final regular-season series starting on Thursday.

Tyler Cloyd (2-6, 5.40 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Cloyd allowed five runs on six hits in five innings in his last start against the Mets, suffering the loss. Cloyd has never faced the Braves and is making his first start at Turner Field.

The Phillies will face right-hander David Hale (0-0, 0.00 ERA). Hale made his major-league debut in his last start, pitching five shutout innings in a no-decision against the Padres at Turner Field. Hale makes his second major-league start and first against the Phillies.

The Phillies finally snapped a five-game losing streak on Tuesday night with a victory over the Marlins in a bullpen game no less. It was a positive step for a group that has shown improvement in the second half.

The Phillies (72-85) enter the final five games of the season. The first of those five is the series finale against the Marlins (58-100) on Wednesday.

Hamels last faced the Marlins on June 5, allowing one run on four hits in seven innings in a win. In his career against the Marlins, Hamels is 9-12 with a 3.16 ERA. At Marlins Park, he is 2-2 with a 1.80 ERA.

The Phillies will face left-hander Brad Hand (1-1, 3.14 ERA). Hand allowed one run on one hit in two innings in his last appearance on Friday against the Nationals. Hand picked up the win against the Phillies in relief on Sept. 18. He made his last start on Sept. 13 against the Mets, allowing four runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings. In his career against the Phillies, Hand is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA. At Marlins Park, he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA.
