  1. Phils Win Game One, Turn to Cliff Lee Tonight to Inch Closer to NL East Crown

    Sep 15, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Going Through the Motions: Kendrick Kicks Off Marlins Double Header

    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.

    Sep 15, 2011, 1:09 PM EDT

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Doc Looks to Stop the Bleeding in Houston, Avoid First Sweep of the Season

    Sep 14, 2011, 1:43 PM EDT

    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.

  8. Phillies 2012 Schedule Highlights Include Baltimore Takeover

    Sep 14, 2011, 10:35 AM EDT

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Jimmy Rollins Calls Monday’s Loss a ‘Twilight Game’

    Sep 13, 2011, 2:19 AM EDT

    Sep 10, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT

  16. 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.

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

    Sep 10, 2011, 2:01 AM EDT

    Sep 9, 2011, 9:54 AM EDT

    The MLB Network is airing a number of vignettes over the weekend about baseball returning to the field post 9/11. One of them features Larry Bowa sharing his feelings on that day at the Vet. Here’s an excerpt:

  20. Hamels Deals as Bench Steps Up to Beat Brewers 7-2

    Sep 9, 2011, 2:15 AM EDT

    The Brewers have been a scary team when playing at home in Wisconsin this season. Coming into tonight’s game they were a very impressive 50-19 at Miller Park. But none of those games were played against the Phillies and their reserves!

  21. Phils In Milwaukee for Four: So Much for that Potential NLCS Preview

    Sep 8, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    This was supposed to be the big test for the Phillies during a month in which they’re kind of just going through the motions waiting for October to come. But as the Phillies kick off their four-game series at Miller Park in Milwaukee where the Brewers have a dominant record, the Fightins’ will be without three of their studs.

  22. J-Roll Points to 2007 ‘Team to Beat’ Statement as Franchise Turning Point

    Sep 8, 2011, 4:09 PM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins recently spoke with Comcast SportsNet about his future with the Phillies organization, but J-Roll didn’t just talk about the uncertainty about where exactly he’ll be playing shortstop next season, he also reflects back on his amazing run to date in Philadelphia.

  23. Pretty Good Three Game Set

    Sep 8, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    I’d say it was a pretty successful three-game set at the Bank this week, a little rain aside. We thought we’d cap it off with this fantastic photo from the Level Flickr group that we had been saving for a rainy day.

  24. Phillies Complete Sweep of Atlanta with Walkoff Heroics

    Sep 7, 2011, 11:04 PM EDT

    Not only did the Phils get to one of the Braves formidable young bullpen arms in the eighth to tie the game up, but they finished in fantastic fashion with a Ross Gload pinch-hit walkoff winner in the ninth to put an exclamation point on who the NL East belongs to this season.

  25. Oswalt and Phils Attempt to Complete the Sweep of Braves

    Sep 7, 2011, 6:48 PM EDT

    A rare instance in this evening’s game when the Phillies starter actually has a higher ERA than the opposing team’s starter. Roy Oswalt (7-8, 3.80) takes on right-hander Brandon Beach (7-2, 3.37) in the third and final game of the series.
