Wheeler, offense go flat in Phils latest loss

Perhaps there should be some concern about Zack Wheeler. His velocity was about three or four miles per hour off of where it normally is and his pitches seemed to flatten out as the Marlins collected seven earned runs against him in just three innings Sunday in an 11-3 romp. The win means the Marlins […]

That’s more like it; Phils hook Marlins 10-3

Offense wakes up late in win over New Yorkers

On the mound, Ranger Suarez was getting hit around and offensively, the Phillies were sleep walking against Taijuan Walker. Eventually, the defense picked up, the bullpen came […]

A’s pitchers hold Phils to three hits

The Phillies offense was as frigid as the Philadelphia weather on Sunday. With temps around 48-degrees with a brisk wind blowing, the Phillies dropped the finale of their three-game series with the Oakland A’s by a 4-1 count. If you guessed that Jean Segura would be the team leader in home runs at any point […]
