Every game-winning hit deserves some pie.

  • AJ Burnett pitched very, very well. He went 7 innings allowing only 3 hits and 0 ER with 5 strikeouts.
  • The only run of the game came in the 8th inning when Revere hit a RBI single to score Dom.
  • Bastardo threw a clean inning. Papelbon threw a perfect ninth for his 4th save.
  • FYI Phils go on a 10 game west coast road trip so remember the games will be later than normal.

Life hack: Don’t be a dick on twitter (or anywhere really) to the players on your favorite team after a bad game.

Anonymous: What do you think the best phillies teams are? Like what years?

Well definitely the end of 2007ish - 2011 with 2011 being the best team out of those years. Yeah, yeah the 2008 one won the WS but I think if you put the 2008 team up against the 2011 team, the 2011 team would easily win. They were so good, it’s a shame the offense (and Cliff gave up that lead boo) died in the post season.

The 76 and 77 teams were really awesome too. Won over 100 games, Schmidt, Maddox, and Luzinski killed it plus some excellent pitching led by Steve Carlton.

Early 80’s, especially 1980 with that first WS title.

Not only were they good but they were a crazy team, the ‘93 team. The team I remember from my childhood. We can just forget how bad they got after that lol.

And you can’t forget the 1950 team, the Whiz kids. Lots of fun history there.

My personal favorite teams are the 2011 and 1993 teams. Really wish I could have witnessed the late 70’s, early 80’s teams but I have my parents to tell me all about them. 



the phillies used children’s drawings of the starting lineup on the scoreboard in place of their official photos

kendrick's is the best hahahaha
  • KK threw 6 innings allowing 6 hits and 2 ER with 7 strikeouts.
  • Ryan Howard homered in the 3rd.
  • Nieves doubled in the 5th to score Utley and Dom and tie the game.
  • Utley continues to be awesome and homered in the 8th which turned out to be the winning run.
  • Rosenberg and Bastardo each threw scoreless innnings. Papelbon threw a perfect 9th for his 3rd save.


Wow, can’t believe it’s been 5 years. RIP, Harry Kalas. We miss you.

04.12.14 - Phillies 5, Marlins 4

  • Pettibone made his season debut tonight and pitched fairly well. He went 5 innings and allowed 8 hits but only 1 ER with 5 strikeouts.
  • Scoring started in the first with a Rollin RBI single followed by an Utley RBI double.
  • Chase doubled in Gwynn Jr. in the 3rd and Howard brought him in with a single.
  • The pen wasn’t able to keep the lead and the Marlins tied the game in 7th.
  • Bastardo, Papelbon and Rosenberg each threw scoreless inning which set up a Rollins walk off homer in the 10th!
  • Oh and ya boy Chase Utley is on fire. He currently leads the entire MLB in slugging percentage and OPS and is second in average and OBP. A completely healthy Chase Utley is a good thing to have.
