Hittin’ Season 213: Phillies have a chip and a chair

Hittin’ Season 213: Phillies have a chip and a chair

The Phillies had a good weekend against the Marlins, and still have a faint postseason pulse. On Episode 213 of “Hittin’ Season,” hosts John Stolnis, Liz Roscher and Justin Klugh discuss the Phillies weekend series win against the Miami Marlins. Is there still a chance they can sneak into the postseason? Also, deep thoughts on Aaron Altherr, Nick Pivetta, removing Scott Kingery for a pinch hitter in the 2nd inning, and why things like “The Opener,” are helping to make baseball a much less watchable sport. Look, I’m not going to lie to you, I don’t really believe the Phillies...

Game Thread 9/15: Marlins at Phillies

Game Thread 9/15: Marlins at Phillies

Hot dang, the Phillies won a ball game. Aaron Altherr absolutely monstered the Marlins last night, with some long distance contributions from Roman Quinn and Rhys Hoskins and an unblown 10+ run lead held up by Zach Eflin.

Here's how we'll line up tonight behind Vinny. #BeBold : @NBCSPhilly, @YouTubeTV : @SportsRadioWIP : https://t.co/wsswL6NND5 pic.twitter.com/4O4qsDM1CQ— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) September 15,...

If Only for One Night: Phillies 14, Marlins 2

A few unexpected heroes powered the Phillies to a rare win Not much has gone right for the Phillies lately. They’ve lost games at a frightening pace, and tumbled from first place in the National League East to the extreme fringe of playoff contention. On Friday, thanks to some strong games from a few players who haven’t many of them this season, the Phillies managed to look like an actual good baseball team for one night. Remember Aaron Altherr? He had somewhat of a breakthrough season in 2017, putting up a .272/.340/.516 season that had many people convinced that he was a part of the...

Altherr powers Phillies past Marlins 14-2

PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Altherr homered twice and drove in five runs, helping the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 14-2 on Friday night.

Altherr's two home runs more than enough to bury moribund Marlins

Phillies expand roster, give underperforming Aaron Altherr a chance at redemption

Also, Cubs manager Joe Maddon isn't surprised at the success his protege, Gabe Kapler, has had with the Phillies.
