See? It can be done: Phillies 8, Nationals 2

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports And now, we wait... The first game of this doubleheader was a gigantic letdown. The Phillies could have made things a lot easier on themselves by winning the first game, but they didn’t, so they put themselves in a position where they had to win the nightcap. Kyle Schwarber, better late than never, made sure that they did win. It only took two pitches, but Schwarber made sure that a statement was made by clobbering a baseball into the upper deck and staking Noah Syndergaard to an early lead. we're in a playoff race damn itFranzke on...

Capital punishment: Nationals 13, Phillies 4

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Postseason dreams never felt so far away The Phillies entered this game Saturday afternoon hoping to get the entirety of the doubleheader in. Moved from today to Friday earlier in the week, the rain last night forced the teams to move the two games to today. Forecasted rain meant that the hope was that they’d get the first game in and hope for the second one to go on as scheduled. All of this meant that Rob Thomson decided that the best shot at winning meant Kyle Gibson was to be sent to the mound. A managerial mistake if ever there was...

Phillies postseason chances take big hit as Astros series looms

The Phillies have a challenging series ahead against the Dusty Baker-led Astros. The Philadelphia Phillies were supposed to open the 2022 regular season on the road against the Houston Astros on March 31. Instead, the delayed spring training pushed the three-game series to the opposite end of the 162-game schedule. And even with the No. […] Phillies postseason chances take big hit as Astros series looms - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - Philadelphia Phillies News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Bailey Falter turned in another strong start | Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports Against any other team, this might have been a loss Having lost five games in a row and coming precipitously close to losing their hold on the National League’s final playoff spot, a series against the Washington Nationals was a welcome sight for the Phillies. No matter what else has happened this season, a game against the Nats has been as close to a guaranteed win as you can get in baseball. On Friday afternoon, the Phillies - with a few exceptions - didn’t play all that well, but thanks to...

Attrition: Phillies vs. Nationals series preview

Fewer strikeouts, please | John Jones-USA TODAY Sports What if they created a playoff spot, but nobody wanted it? In previous series previews, I wrote that the Phillies had the talent necessary to make the playoffs. This isn’t like past seasons when the rotation consisted of quad A starters, or the bullpen contained zero reliable arms. And while the current lineup might have some guys who clearly aren’t at full strength, the backs of their baseball cards say that this team should be able to score plenty of runs. The Phillies have no excuses for missing the...

They were gifted a reprieve last night when the Brewers were beaten by the Marlins, but with their being in the lead, the Phillies need to take care of their own business first. They need to stop hoping for Milwaukee to stumble and break out of the gates themselves. On to the links. Phillies news: We are getting close to the team completing its biggest collapse since 1964.

Anyone surprised by that? Cubs 2, Phillies 0

One team was smiling on Thursday, but it wasn’t the Phillies | Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ This was possibly the most inevitable loss in Phillies history There are some losses that are considered “gut punches.” Heading into the game, you are completely confident of victory, and when the team ends up losing, it feels like you’ve been punched in the stomach. The Phillies’ 2-0 loss to the Cubs on Thursday afternoon does not qualify as a gut punch, because pretty much every Phillies fan in existence saw it coming. They lost the first two games of the series, and...
