The Phillies lost their second straight today as they closed out the final regular season home game. It was fan appreciation day, where the Phillies paid tribute to the fans, the Phillies have now had 123 continuous sell outs at Citizens Bank Park thanks to the fans. Cole Hamels took the start today….
….but had his worst game post All Star Break, he managed just 4 innings, after giving up his 5th run at the start of the 5th inning Charlie decided it was time to make that AT@T call to the pen.
Even though the Phillies lost the game today, the Nationals gave them some support by beating the Braves and making the Phillies magic number 1.
The Phillies head to the nations capitol for a 3 game set starting Monday, where they hope to seal the deal on the National League East division title for the 4th straight year.
One Game at a Time – GO PHILLIES….
UPDATE: The Reds beat the Padres giving the Phillies a
guaranteed play off spot, however they still need that 1 elusive win to clinch
The latest tool in the Phillies arsenal is not Jayson Werth, even though next to his new agent, Boras, he seems like a saint, he’s still a tool. It’s official, the Phillies now have the ‘Power of the Swiffer’….
….it can be used while on the road or at Citizens Bank Park, Florida, Washington and now Atlanta have suffered the power of the Swiffer this month.
The Phillies have now won 10 straight and have a 6 game lead in the NL East, they are even closer to clinching a playoff berth.
Up next the New York Mets come to the Bank, yes anyone with just an inclining of common sense knows they can’t keep winning without a loss, but for now it certainly feels like it….
