The Howard- a strikeout, error, and homerun all wrapped up in a nifty lil' package by one player in the same game.And for some uncanny reason, the Phillies seem to win any time one of them does it.Today's hero- Erik Kratz. The career minor leaguer is finally getting a chance to shine at 32 years old and is making the most of the opportunity, batting .333/1.200 in 20 games...

Vance Worley's last start did not last long. Battling some stomach issues, Worley lasted just 3 2/3 innings against Atlanta on Tuesday with less-than-stellar results. Today, Worley looks to rebound and give the Phillies a series win. He will have to do so without Jimmy Rollins, who is getting a day off.
On the season, Worley is 6-7 with a 3.83 ERA.
Worley will battle...
Before Chase Utley's heroics and Roy Halladay's dominant start, the Phillies held their annual Wall of Fame induction, adding longtime catcher Mike Lieberthal, who played for the Phillies from 1994 to 2006.
Lieberthal entered the Wall of Fame as, statisically, the best catcher in Phillies' history with the most hits (1,128), home runs (149), and games caught (1,139...
For the seventh time in their last nine wins at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia won in its final at-bat. Pierre, the 13-year veteran and ultimate team player, beat out an infield single that allowed the Phillies to walk off with an 8-7, 11-inning win against the Cardinals.
It was the fifth win of the Phillies’ nine-game homestand, marking just their second winning homestand of...
Juan Pierre beat out a run-scoring infield single in the 11th inning, lifting the Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-7 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.
Jimmy Rollins reached off Barret Browning (0-2) on a fielder's choice. He advanced to second base on a grounder and then stole third.
Pierre hit one deep into the hole that shortstop Rafael Furcal made a great stab at...
For the Phillies to be competitive in 2013, players like Ryan Howard will need to return to the form they showed a couple of years ago.
We’ve talked ad nauseam about the 2012 Phillies. What went wrong, who’s to blame and how to fix it have all been topics of much debate and coverage. Still there’s one question that remains unanswered – Can the Phillies compete in 2013?
Domonic Brown is a big part of the Philadelphia Phillies final 2 months. What other regulars are expected to shine?

This disaster of a season actually didn't start in 2012. It started on October 7, 2011, when the Phillies were on the wrong end of a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to the St. Louis...
Cole Hamels showed in his most recent outing why the Philadelphia Phillies decided to invest in him while dealing away others during a disappointing campaign.
His performances against the Miami Marlins this season haven't gone nearly as well.

Chase Utley’s two-run home run in the eighth inning helps lead the Phils over the World Champs as they down the Cards, 3-1.
The Cards took a 1-0 lead in the second as Carlos Beltran hits a lead-off home run, his twenty-eighth home run of the year. The Phils would tie the game up at one-all in their half of the second as, with a runner on second, and with nobody out, Dom Brown hits...
