Pettibone sharp, Phillies enjoy a 3 game winning streak.

Jonathan Pettibone has been a pleasant surprise to Phillies fans since making his debut back on April 22nd.  He improved to 3-0 on the season and was the first Phillies pitcher since Gavin Floyd to start his career at 3-0.  The 22 year old right hander pitched 6 2/3 innings which was his longest outing […]


How Sweep it is! Phillies take 3 from the Mets in New York

Things were looking bleak as the Phillies limped into their weekend series with arch-rival New York Mets.  The Phillies were sitting at 9-14 and 7.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves on Friday.  They desperately needed to right the ship and get back on the winning track.  The Phillies responded by doing just that, improving to […]

Phillies fall short, but show fight in 4-3 loss to the Cardinals

For the seventh straight game, the Phillies offense has failed to score in the first five innings of a game.  In addition, they also have not scored 3 or more runs in any of those games either.  Another stat that I find disturbing is that they have not drawn a walk in 4 straight games.  […]
