Phillies miss opportunity to gain ground in Wild Card race

The Phillies felt pretty confident with Kyle Kendrick on the mound last night. His 2.34 ERA since the All Star Break was the second best in all of baseball. Their opponent was the worst team in baseball. In the end, things didn’t work out quite as they had hoped. Kyle Kendrick was not sharp in his 5 innings of work, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits as he dropped to 9-11 on the season...

Cole Hamels Seeks to Put Phillies Back On Winning Track In Houston

Last night, the Phils dropped their first game in over a week, snapping a seven-game win streak, and propelling them back four games in the Wild Card race. In the early goings, it looked like the Phillies victory: a four-run lead against a pathetically weak offense in the Astros. Nope. The Astros would slowly come back to come within one run in the fourth inning. They would keep...

Shooting Stars: Phillies score early and often in rout of Astros

Jimmy Rollins started it with a bang. Jeremy Horst ended it with a punchout. That was the way the Phillies dismantled  the Astros one night after they stunned them with an eighth-inning rally.

Phillies in Striking Distance with 17 Games Remaining.

With Friday night's 12-6 victory in the books and Cole Hamels tying his single-season career mark in wins (15), the Phillies are back in the hunt for the final wild card spot in the National League after a disappointing loss Thursday evening.

Astros shut out Phillies 5-0

HOUSTON -- Kyle Kendrick and the Philadelphia Phillies picked the wrong time to stumble in an already heated race for a spot in the playoffs. Kendrick gave up four runs in five innings while the bats went cold, and the Phillies fell 5-0 to the lowly Astros on Saturday night for their second loss in three games. The win was a feat of sorts for the Astros, who avoided -- at least...

Philadelphia entered the day three games behind St. Louis for the final wild...

Ugly Seventh Inning and Bullpen Meltdown Lead to 7-6 Loss Against Houston

This was a must-win for the Phillies, no doubt about that. Being three games back in the second wild card spot with 16 left to play, the Phils had to beat the last-place, worst in MLB Astros.  Luckily, the Phils backed up Roy Halladay with some early offense. In the top of the first inning, Jimmy Rollins scored on a sacrifice fly from Chase Utley. In the third, Scott Moore...

Phillies Streak Snapped by the Astros? Seriously?

The Houston Astros defeated Philadelphia 6-4 to snap the Phillies’ season-high seven-game winning streak and drop Philadelphia to 4 games back in the National League wild-card race. Houston, which has the worst record in the majors (46-98), took the lead with a two-out rally in the eighth. Dominguez walked, and pinch hitter Scott Moore was hit by a pitch from Phillippe Aumont ...
