  1. Cliff Lee Dominates, Phils Complete Four Game Sweep, Romero DFA’d

    Jun 16, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    That’s why fans pack Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia day after day, night after night, as the Phillies completed their longest homestand of the season this afternoon by winning their ninth game in eleven tries on the home turf. Cliff Lee was simply fantastic, throwing his second complete game of the season, shutting out the…

  2. Photo: Ryan Howard’s Coming Home!

    Jun 16, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Carlos Ruiz got the credit for the walkoff winner last night against the Florida Marlins, but Ryan Howard started things off in the 10th inning by taking a fastball right in the midsection. The Big Piece was none pleased about getting plunked, but after giving an evil staredown as he walked to first, Howard put on his running shoes and eventually scored the winning run.

    US Presswire captured this awesome photo of Howard truckin’ home. What do you think the Big Piece is thinking?

    Jun 15, 2011, 10:51 PM EDT

    Chooooooch! The Phillies pulled off some late inning heroics by coming back from being down two runs in the ninth to tie it up and send the game into extras. Shane Victorino hit a clutch single that scored Carlos Ruiz and Michael Martinez who was running for Ross Gload who hit a big pinch hit.…

  6. Roy Halladay vs. Anibal Sanchez in Night Cap

    Jun 15, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay pitches the night cap as the Phils attempt to win their second ball game of the day after Kyle Kendrick dominated a Marlins squad that simply seems out of sorts. Facing Halladay should not make things any easier for them. Halladay (9-3, 2.39) takes on RHP Anibal Sanchez (6-1, 2.06) who reportedly requested…

  7. Kendrick Deals (Yes, Really) While Bats Remain Hot, Win Day Game 8-1

    Jun 15, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kyle Kendrick earned his paycheck on Wednesday afternoon as the Phillies spot starter put in seven very solid innings of work, with a first inning longball to Logan Morrison his only real blemish on the day. KK’s final line: 7 IP, 5 hits, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 Ks. “Some of the greatest things about…

    Jun 15, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT

    While residents of Philadelphia are well aware that it is, indeed, not always sunny in Philadelphia, fans at Citizens Bank Park are certainly getting their fill of rays this afternoon.

    Don’t believe me? Well, Wheels and T-Mac felt the need to point this out to us early and often during game one of the Phillies and Marlins double header on Wednesday afternoon.

  9. Brett Hayes Throws Ball At Shane Victorino’s Head From Point Blank

    Jun 15, 2011, 1:24 PM EDT

  11. Cole Hamels’ Back Should Be All Right

    Jun 15, 2011, 9:07 AM EDT

    Cole Hamels was straight dealing last night against the Marlins. The offense was straight rolling, ringing the bell at Citizen Bank Park like Sarah Palin’s version of Paul Revere — over and over and over. But then Cole left the game a bit early and fear set it. Charlie Manuel and Cole quelled that a…

  12. Watch: Dom Brown Goes Second Deck

    Jun 15, 2011, 12:37 AM EDT

  15. Marlins-Phillies Preview: Hanley’s Back

    Jun 14, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    After a hot start the Florida Marlins have hit a real rough patch as of late, dropping three of four to the Diamondbacks over the weekend and losers of nine of their last ten overall. They’ll get a big bump tonight when Hanley Ramirez is expected to return and bat leadoff for the Marlins.

  16. Marlins Tell LoMo To Quiet Down

    Jun 14, 2011, 10:57 AM EDT

    Logan Morrison endeared himself to Phillies fans way more than almost any other player from an opposing team who had never played for Philadelphia. He did this mostly by being a chatter box on Twitter, interacting with fans from all teams whether or not they praised his play or ridiculed it. The relationship LoMo has…

  17. Cole Hamels Leads the Starting Pitcher Hitting Competition

    Jun 14, 2011, 10:01 AM EDT

    There’s something quite enjoyable about watching a pitcher swing a baseball bat successfully. Perhaps it’s the fact that they train their entire professional lives to be dominant at throwing a baseball, but with this Phillies team, the fact that the Four Aces are so likable most certainly contributes.

    We’ve mentioned the batting competition between the starting pitchers previously, but the Inquirer’s Matt Gelb found out the scoring system Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels use in tracking the team’s best hitting ace.

  20. The Greatest Love Song Ever Written

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:28 PM EDT

    Yesterday we stumbled upon a piece of music so beautiful, we were in complete and utter shock that we had not discovered it in the past. And make it our cellphone ring tone. It’s a love song, but not just any love song. It’s a love song set in Philadelphia. And not in Philly’s uglier…
