Myers Looks Like ... Myers

Saturday, May 31, 2008, 10:10 AM
You weren't surprised the Phillies hit last night in a 12-3 victory over the Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. But did you know Brett Myers would recover from a three-run first inning to pitch eight and strike out 11? Or did you think he might implode? That's probably the biggest news from last night's...

Goin' Fishin'

Are the Florida Marlins for real? It's May 30 and they're in first place in the National League East, a half-game ahead of the Phillies. They're fourth in the league with 4.88 runs scored per game, which trails only the Cubs (5.63), Phillies (5.33) and Diamondbacks (5.07). They have a couple studs... Read more

Imagine the Possibilities

Adam Eaton got his win. The Phillies got their sweep. It sets up nicely for this weekend's series against the Florida Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Eaton allowed just one run in six innings last night in a 6-1 victory over the Rockies. That's two good starts in a row for Eaton. I'm not sure that's... Read more

Phillies Roll On

Jim Salisbury asked a question I'm sure on most people's minds last night as they watched the Phillies pound the Rockies at Citizens Bank Park: "Where was this in October?" The Phillies scored a season-high 20 runs in a 20-5 victory over the Rockies. They have scored 35 runs their past... Read more

Burrell Is Scratched

Tuesday, May 27, 2008, 6:55 PM
Pat Burrell has been scratched from tonight's lineup because of stiffness on the left side of his neck. The Phillies said he is day to day. Greg Dobbs has taken Burrell's place in left field. He will hit fifth. Read more

Benson Makes Progress

Tuesday, May 27, 2008, 5:03 PM
Kris Benson is making progress. Real progress. He threw four-plus innings in an extended spring training game today in Clearwater, Fla. He allowed three hits, one run and one walk. He struck out four. He threw 75 pitches, and his fastball hovered around 86 to 90 mph. That's an increase from his start... Read more
