  • Velasquez looks to build momentum vs. Cards
    The second matchup of the three-game series at Citizens Bank Park pits Vince Velasquez (5-7, 4.74 ERA) against the Cardinals' Luke Weaver (3-6, 4.52 ERA) tonight at 7:05 ET.

  • Altherr's walk-off double sends Phils to wild win
    Aaron Altherr's two-run double in the 10th was the winner in a game with a lot of late action. Tommy Pham's 10th-inning homer put the Cards up after they came back from 2 down in the 9th. Yadier Molina scored on a wild-pitch strikeout that would have ended the game, before Kolten Wong tied it with a pinch-hit single. The Phillies' bullpen wasted a dominant effort from Nick Pivetta, who fanned a career-high 13, but Philly didn't score after a 4-run 1st keyed by an Odubel Herrera homer.

  • Phils finish off Rox after Velasquez's no-no bid
    Vince Velasquez showed no-hit stuff in Thursday afternoon's 9-3 win over the Rockies at Citizens Bank Park. Velasquez flummoxed Colorado hitters through 6 2/3 innings, but fatigue set in, allowing Trevor Story to lace an RBI double in the seventh. German Marquez worked around solo homers from Rhys Hoskins and Nick Williams until he too ran out of gas in the seventh, resulting in a four-run inning for the Phillies. Ryan McMahon was a bright spot in the rubber-game loss, as the rookie notched his first career homer for the Rox.
  • Hoskins sparks offense with 3 hits, 3 RBIs
    The game was hanging in the balance when Rhys Hoskins stepped in the batter's box during the bottom of the seventh inning Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies' bullpen needed to record six more outs. Recent history offered no guarantees that would happen with a two-run lead still intact.
