  1. Extra Time: Union Charge Rhinos, Torres Nearing Return

    May 30, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    After seeing the Union allow Toronto FC to earn points for the first time in 10 matches this past Saturday, we won’t pretend that last night’s 3-0 win in Lamar Hunt US Open Cup play wasn’t a relief, even if it came against a minor league team.

  2. Wigginton’s 6 RBI Power Another Hamels Win

    May 28, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    The Philadelphia Phillies notched an 8-4 win to start a three-game set with the New York Mets. Cole Hamels earned his Major League-leading eighth win of the season with a fine eight-inning effort, and Ty Wigginton put in a career afternoon, knocking in six runs.

  4. And to Top It Off, Chooch Got Ejected…

    May 23, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    After winning six straight, the Phillies dropped their fourth in a row last night, a 5-2 loss to Washington. They’ve now lost four of their last five against the Nationals and 13 of 16 going back to last season. More alarming than that trend, Roy Halladay was utterly human, having troubles locating, leaving the ball up in the zone.

    How the Washington Nationals ace had a start derailed by a burning sensation down below…

  9. Holdin on to Orange & Black Mettle

    May 8, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Is this the final Flyers gamethread of the 2011-2012 season? With no reason to obfuscate the obvious, we need to accept the possibility that unless the Flyers can dramatically turn around the trends of the past three games, it will be.

  10. Frustrated With Refs, Giroux Goes High on Zubrus

    May 6, 2012, 9:42 PM EDT

    A rather undisciplined play from Claude Giroux to end the second period on a negative note. After arguing with the ref at one end of the ice and not getting the call he was looking for, Giroux clearly hit New Jersey Devils right winger Dainius Zubrus with a shoulder to the head

  12. Mets Do Something Great, Honor MCA

    May 5, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    The New York Mets aren’t known for making great decisions, but they did last night, when they adopted all-Beastie Boys walk-up music in honor of Adam “MCA” Yauch’s passing.

  13. Chooch Posts 7 RBI, But Phils Fall in Painful Extras

    May 3, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    Probably not the best way to start a Thursday morning, but who wants to take a quick look at just a few of the more painful elements from last night’s 15-13 Phillies loss in Atlanta?

  14. Flyers West Shred Hitch’s Blues Again as Richie, Carter, Williams All Score

    May 1, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    One of the great things about this year’s NHL playoffs is that the league’s new deal with NBC ensures that if there’s a game we want to see, we can. Last night, with the Flyers off, the remotes got a workout between Phillies-Cubs, Rangers-Caps, and Kings-Blues. For me, with my twisted and temporary rooting interests, I hit the trifecta. The Phils won. The Rangers lost. And the Kings won, with former Flyers featuring prominently.

  15. Danny Briere! Flyers Take Game 1 in OT

  22. Fleury, Penguins Grind Flyers to a Nub

    Apr 20, 2012, 11:21 PM EDT

    Tough loss, but nowhere near as bad as Game 4. It’d be hard to sink lower than that one… The good news is, the Flyers’ effort was leaps and bounds better in game 5. The bad news is obvious—the Pens are absolutely back in this series after winning a tight battle, 3-2.

  23. An Embarrassing 10-3 Playoff Loss Still Worth It.

    Apr 20, 2012, 12:18 PM EDT

    Attending the Flyers brutal 10-3 loss in game 4 at the Wells Fargo Center was tough. Here’s what it was like up in the last row of the 200 level.

  24. Phils Live in a Vance Down by the River

    Apr 20, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    So there’s Cliff Lee, sitting in the dugout for the Phillies’ first game since he pitched 10 scoreless innings and still lost, his team unable to put up a single run. Just half an inning into their next opportunity, they loaded the bases and plated a run. It wasn’t much, but it would have been enough to get Cliff a W, and on Thursday night, it was enough to get Vance Worley one.
