  3. Worley vs. Billingsley as Phils Look to Cap Best-Ever 10-Game Road Trip

    Aug 10, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Vance Worley (8-1, 2.35) and the Phillies look to cap off their grueling 20 games in 20 days this afternoon in sweeping fashion. A win in Los Angeles today would finish off that 20-day span with an 16-4 record, and an absolutely impressive 9-1 on the 10-game road trip. That would be their first-ever 9-1 record on a 10-game road trip in franchise history.

  5. Cliff Lee Bashes Second Home Run of Season, Phils Win

    Aug 10, 2011, 12:37 AM EDT

    Shortly after midnight on the East Coast, Cliff Lee rewarded Phillies fans who stayed up late to watch him deal against the Dodgers. But it wasn’t with his arm. Lee had been showcasing his dazzling stuff on the mound all night, shutting out the Dodgers through six innings at that point. It was one beautiful swing of the bat that landed a Ted Lilly offering into the right field seats that really sent the Cliff Lee love fest through the roof.

  6. Cliff Lee Looks to Take Phils to Rare Heights (Above .500)

    Aug 9, 2011, 1:56 AM EDT

  9. Polanco Given Dreaded ‘Sports Hernia’ Diagnosis, May Play Through It

    Aug 8, 2011, 11:35 PM EDT

    The news coming out of the Placido Polanco doctor’s visit could’ve been a lot worse, but no one in Philadelphia will be too thrilled with the words “sports hernia” being applied to another local athlete. Jim Salisbury says that for the time being, Polly won’t head to the DL, and he’ll get an anti-inflammatory injection on Tuesday, then be re-evaluated on Friday to see if he can play through it. If not, surgical repair could sideline him up to a month.

    Michael Martinez started at third on Monday night, and he’ll man the hot corner along with Wilson Valdez while Polanco is out, unless Ruben goes 3B hunting…

  15. Phillies Don’t Win

    Aug 7, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    The Hunter Pence streaks are over. Since the Phillies brought up their new right fielder from AAAA Houston, he’s hit in every game, and they’ve won ‘em all. Ten straight proved too much though, as the Giants blocked a sweep with a 3-1 win on Sunday afternoon.

  16. Chipper Jones On Phillies’ Greatness

    Aug 7, 2011, 3:33 PM EDT

    Aug 7, 2011, 2:28 PM EDT

    The Fightin’ Phils have won nine straight games and currently hold the best record in all of baseball. Today, those same Phillies will add Roy Oswalt into the mix. Not too shabby of a post-deadline addition, eh? Lil Roy is ready to get out of the dugout and onto the field.

    Aug 6, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT
