9/24/2016 | Franco stays tough on Mets with 3-run homer

9/22/2016 | Gomez blows save, Phils could make change

Jeanmar Gomez had been one of the Phillies' best stories of the season through mid-August. He had transformed himself from a relatively anonymous middle reliever into a closer with 30-plus saves.

Goeddel laid on his back at home plate for a couple minutes before standing up and walking back to the Phillies' dugout.

It is just one game, but a game like this might allow the Phillies to dream a little about the future.

9/21/2016 | Mets expect hard-fought set from Phillies

9/21/2016 | Mackanin may replace Gomez as closer

Nobody could have predicted Jeanmar Gomez would save 37 games this season. So then who could have predicted somebody else could still close games for the Phillies in the season's final 11 games?

Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera might want to extend the season a little longer. Herrera has been one of the hottest hitters on the planet for the past week, and his torrid hitting continued in Tuesday night's 7-6 victory over the White Sox at Citizens Bank Park. He went 3-for-4 with one home run, three RBIs, three runs scored and two stolen bases. He is hitting .536 (15-for-28) with four doubles, two home runs, six RBIs and four stolen bases in his last seven games.
