Milwaukee Brewers (44-52) at Philadelphia Phillies (43-54) Marco Estrada (0-4, 4.10) vs. Vance Worley (5-6, 3.82) Time: 1:05, Citizens Bank Park TV: CSN Weather: Mostly Sunny, 92 Media: Twitter and Facebook Another day, another unbelievable comeback.  The Phillies will go for the sweep this afternoon. Vance Worley’s last start can be summed up by one bad inning. Worley allowed a five-spot in the sixth inning against the San Francisco Giants.  He made one bad mistake to Brandon Crawford, which turned out to be the game. Worley is still having a fine year, and has minimized talks of a sophomore slump. Marco Estrada spent some of the season in the bullpen.  As a starter this season, he has struggled, going 0-4 with a 4.45 ERA.  He was placed on the disabled list in June, but has been a little better since his return.  In his last four starts, he has had a quality start or better.  His strikeout totals have been off the charts recently, fanning 45 in 24.2 innings.

Happy 8th Birthday Phillies Nation!

On this day eight years ago, Phillies Nation was born. I was jealous of my roommate’s obsession with Sons of Sam Horn and wanted a similar home for Phillies fans. Mostly I wanted one place where I could find all my Phillies information. But at least part of me was inspired by Eric Milton’s excellence.  Here is Phillies Nation’s first post: Milton Perfect though 8 1/3 What...

Cole Hamels will remain with the Philadelphia Phillies. The left-hander is close to completing a six-year contract extension for more than $137.5 million, according to major-league sources.
