    Sep 17, 2011, 11:34 PM EDT

    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.

  3. The Phillies Are Your 2011 NL East Champs Behind Oswalt’s Gem

    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.

    They sure did make it interesting though.

    Sep 15, 2011, 10:17 PM EDT

    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.

  10. Pete Orr’s ‘Ultimate Sno-cone’ Grab

    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

  13. A Phillies Hat Alone Will Not Make You a Superhero

    Sep 15, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    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.

  14. Playoffs! Doc Clinches Phillies Postseason Berth with Complete Game Shutout

    Sep 14, 2011, 4:18 PM EDT

    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.

  17. Happ Beats Hamels, Phillies Lose Third Straight; Sky Remains at Safe Distance From Earth

    Sep 14, 2011, 12:36 AM EDT

    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.

  18. Phillies Can Clinch Playoff Berth Tonight with Hamels On Hill

    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.

  24. Watch Pete Orr Run Straight Into Oncoming Sausages

    Sep 10, 2011, 9:32 AM EDT

    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.

  25. Big Man and the Doctor: ‘Nuff Said for Phils Victory
