Pence stood out. And not just because he’s so damn tall. When he came out from the clubhouse with the rest of a team, he led the crowd in a “Let’s Go Eat!” chant.

Scott Franzke calls the final out of the Phillies Cardinals game as the Phillies clinched their fifth straight National League East Championship
Sep 17, 2011, 10:11 PM EDT
The Phillies defeated the Cardinals 9-2 on Saturday night to lock up their fifth-straight NL East crown. It’s only one step in this team’s quest for a World Series Championship, but it’s an accomplishment that the team doesn’t take for granted. Yes, the core guys like Jimmy, Chase, Ryan, Cole, Chooch, Madson and Shane have had the pleasure of celebrating a handful of these together, but as Charlie Manuel said on Friday, it gets better every time.

With the Braves defeating the Mets earlier in the afternoon, the Phillies need to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals to be crowned NL East Champs for the fifth-straight season.

CITIZENS BANK PARK — The New York Mets delivered on Friday night. The best team in baseball did not.
They sure did make it interesting though.

Hanging on the door to the Phillies Broadcast Workroom is a sign that reads “Muffin Men” in homage to the great Chris Wheeler.

Cliff Lee was brilliant on Thursday night, but came one pitch away from his 7th complete game shutout of the season. Thankfully, the bats that were silent all night provided the winning run in extras.

In order for the Phillies to clinch the NL East crown on Friday, they need a win tonight against the Marlins, a win tomorrow against the Cardinals, and a Braves loss tomorrow night against the Mets in a game that starts at 7:35.
Sep 15, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT
Pete Orr isn’t exactly of the same pedigree as Chase Utley, but damn if he didn’t make two fantastic defensive plays in the first game against the Marlins on Thursday.
Sep 15, 2011, 2:16 PM EDT
Kyle Kendrick kicks off the first of two games today against the Florida Marlins. Rain looks likely. Of course it does.

The Phillies in collaboration with the Mural Arts Program unveiled their plan for the Phillies Mural which will debut next summer.

Sure, Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee may act like Superheros. But just because Long Underwear Man puts on a Phillies hat doesn’t mean he’ll gain super powers.

Playoffs! Sometimes all you need is Roy Halladay and a couple of hits to put an end to the losing ways. Doc was sharp against the Astros, finishing the day after throwing all 9.0 innings and allowing 6 hits while striking out 7 and walking only 1. The win clinches the Phillies their 5th-straight spot in the postseason and earned Roy his 18th win of the season.

After taking the brooms to the Atlanta Braves last week, the Philadelphia Phillies are the last team in Major League Baseball that have yet to fall victim to a series sweep in the 2011 season. With a starting rotation featuring one “stopper” after another, its been thought that his team might never get swept. We’ll find out today.

The Phillies will kick off the 2012 season on Thursday, April 5th on the road in Pittsburgh, a destination close enough that could allow for a nice Philly fan presence. The Fightins will make their 2012 Citizens Bank Park debut against the renamed Miami Marlins on Monday April 9 in a 1:05 game.

A night after former Phillie Brett Myers topped former Astro Roy Oswalt, former Phillie JA Happ beat Cole Hamels. After a loss to close out the series in Milwaukee, tonight’s 5-2 defeat at the hands of Wade’s Boys marks the first time the Phillies have lost three straight since early June.
Sep 13, 2011, 5:40 PM EDT
It’s been pretty safe to assume the Phillies were going to make the postseason for a couple of weeks now, but a win tonight (or a loss by St. Louis) will make it official. Cole Hamels (14-7, 2.60) takes the hill for the Phillies and hopes to earn his 15th win of the season which would match a career high. He was 15-5 in 2007.
Sep 13, 2011, 2:19 AM EDT
Monday’s game against Brett Myers and the Houston Astros was pretty much as ugly as it gets.
Sep 12, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT
Roy Oswalt and Hunter Pence return to face the Astros team that traded them to the Phillies.

Cliff Lee faces former Phillies pitcher Randy Wolf in game three of the Fightins’ four game set versus the Milwaukee Brewers.

This is apparently Pete Orr’s first sausage rodeo…Personally, I think he had money on one of them and was trying to fix the outcome here. Thanks to @waverider15 for the video.
Sep 10, 2011, 2:01 AM EDT
Ryan Howard’s three-run blast and Roy Halladay’s one-run outing power the Phils to another victory in Milwaukee.
