The extended time off appeared to affect the Phillies bats a bit more than it did Cole Hamels left arm. At least until the eighth inning when Shane Victorino unloaded one of his sweet swings that sent a no-doubter into the seats in right to put the Phillies up 3-1. Stutes would falter a bit in the bottom half of the inning, but the Fightins held on for 3-2 win.

Not only will the Phillies be getting back to action for the first time since their loss to the Marlins on Friday night, Cole Hamels (13-7, 2.62) will be starting for the first time in 17 days. Will Hamels return to form after an extended rest or will the fatigue he mentioned after that poor showing against the Nationals on Auguest 12th linger?

With all of these postponed and rescheduled games, pretty much the biggest question surrounding the Phillies was how would they manage their starting rotation going forward. We now have an answer. Rich Dubee told reporters this afternoon that Cole Hamels will start Monday…

With now zero Philadelphia sports on the agenda for this weekend, we’ll be posting some random goods in the hope of entertaining you before the power goes out and the world ends. Stay tuned and we’ll try to have some fun.

The Phils lost last night, and while that’s not the end of the world (Hurricane Irene is!), today’s a good day to look back on August 26, 2007, when a fella by the name of Kevin Kernan declared the NL East race over. (Yes, I meant to post it yesterday as an anniversary of sorts, but didn’t get to it.) The New York Post writer took one look at a mere 6.5-game New York Mets lead over the Phillies and was all PSSSSH, they got this.

It’s quite easy to hate on other teams, other cities, and their fans, but one guy who is almost universally cherished by baseball fans across the nation is Vin Scully. He announced on Friday night that he’s coming back to announce Dodgers games for an absolutely remarkable 63rd season. Big ups to Vin Scully. You’re…

Plenty of interesting story lines developing this weekend in Philadelphia, with perhaps one of the worst hurricanes we’ll ever see likely to hit the East Coast in the next 24 hours, but not too many of them have to do with the action on the field.

For those keeping track at home (or who happen to have tickets to games this weekend at CBP), Sunday’s game has been moved to Saturday at 1:05 and Saturday night’s scheduled 7:05 game will now be moved to September 15th. The Phillies now have ZERO off days in the entire month of September. You may…

The hurricane that is swirling out over the Atlantic Ocean could really put a damper on sporting events this weekend up and down the entire East Coast. The Philadelphia Union’s game scheduled for Sunday against the New England Revolution has already been pushed back to September 7th, and the Phillies have moved their Sunday game to a Saturday 1:05 start.

The Phils will try to finish off the sweep of the Mets this afternoon at Citizens Bank Park as Kyle Kendrick (7-5, 3.24) will take on right-hander Mike Pelfrey (6-10, 4.61). The Phils will get to enjoy an off-day on Thursday so finishing off the Mets with a win today would make their likely lunches in Rittenhouse tomorrow that much more enjoyable.

The Phillies have now won the last 12 games that Vance Worley has started. It’s a remarkable fact, one that Worley never really imagined himself.
