Wilfredo Tovar plated the most important runs of the game in his major league debut, with his go-ahead single in the seventh helping the New York Mets to a 4-3 victory and a three-game series sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. With runners on second and third and the Mets behind by a run, the rookie shortstop lined a single to left. Juan Lagares scored easily and Anthony Recker came around when Phillies left fielder Domonic Brown mishandled the go- ahead hit. Lagares added an RBI double in the eighth for insurance before LaTroy Hawkins notched his 12th save with a scoreless ninth. Carlos Torres (4-5) struck out six over six solid innings for New York, scattering seven hits, three walks and two runs to pick up the win. Brown, Darin Ruf and Kevin Frandsen each knocked in a run for the Phillies, who had removed the interim tag from manager Ryne Sandberg prior to the game and rewarded t ...

Tie-Breaking Homer Helps Cubs Beat Phillies 4-3
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
CHICAGO -- Starlin Castro hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. Cole Gillespie drove in two runs with a single and a sacrifice fly as the Cubs earned their fourth win in 20 home games since the All-Star break. Castro, Junior Lake, Wellington Castillo and Darwin Barney had two hits apiece. Castro drove a 1-0 fastball from Zach Miner (0-1) to the center field batter's eye for his eighth homer. The leadoff drive through a steady wind was his first homer since July 31 against Milwaukee. Michael Young collected three more hits for Philadelphia, which has split its last six games. Young went 4 for 5 in the Phillies' 6-5 victory in Friday's series opener and is batting .588 (10 for 17) in four games against the Cubs this season. Kevin Frandsen homered for the second straight day, giving him five on the year, but Philadelphia dropped to 9-7 under interim manager and former Cubs seco ...

Cubs Blow Five-Run Lead In 6-5 Loss To Phillies
Huffington Post - over 3 years
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs felt pretty good in the sixth inning. They had a five-run lead, and Jeff Samardzija was cruising. Everything fell apart from there. Samardzija lost control of the game in a hurry, helping the Philadelphia Phillies rally for a 6-5 victory Friday in Ryne Sandberg's return to Wrigley Field. "It got away from me a little bit," Samardzija said. Michael Young had four hits for Philadelphia, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning. Chase Utley added a key two-run triple as the Phillies bounced back from Thursday's 11-3 loss to the New York Mets. "It's a good one to get. Sure, down 5-0 out of the chute," Sandberg said. "The guys battled back. Good energy after that. Anytime you rally to come back like that it goes well with the guys. But yeah, extra special." The Phillies improved to 9-6 since Sandberg was promoted to interim manager when Charlie Manuel was fired on Aug. 16. The Hall of Fame second baseman spent most ...

Chase Utley drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series. Cody Asche smacked a pinch-hit single to right off of Heath Bell (4-2) to start the inning and Jimmy Rollins followed with a single to right to put runners at the corners. After Michael Young was issued a free pass, Kevin Frandsen struck out and Eury De La Rosa took over. Utley worked the count full before taking a pitch inside for ball four and Asche trotted home for the win. It was the third straight walk-off win for the Phillies as the team took the final two games of a four-game set against Colorado with a game-winning run in the ninth inning.

Sox Split Doubleheader vs. Phillies
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
PHILADELPHIA -- With a catcher playing second base to finish a long day of baseball, the Chicago White Sox at least got one win to show for it. Alexei Ramirez hit a tiebreaking double in the 11th inning to lift Chicago over the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Saturday. Michael Young hit an RBI single with two outs in the 13th inning to give Philadelphia a 2-1 win in the nightcap. After a 41-minute rain delay following the top of the ninth of Game 1, White Sox righty Nate Jones escaped a no-out, second-and-third jam in the bottom half. Ramon Troncoso (1-2) then left the winning run on third in the 10th. "The last few innings, guys were hanging by the skin of their teeth," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "It wasn't pretty, but it worked out." It got tougher in Game 2. Second baseman Gordon Beckham left the game with a left quad injury after a collision with right fielder Casper Wells, forcing Josh Phegley to play ...

Kevin Frandsen's pinch-hit RBI double in the seventh helped the Philadelphia Phillies take a 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals to wrap up a four-game set. Ben Revere had two hits and drove in a run while Michael Young also had an RBI for the Phillies, who took three of four in the set and have won six of their last eight games. Kyle Kendrick (8-6) bounced back from a pair of rough outings as he gave up just a run on five hits over seven innings to get the win. Ryan Zimmerman drove in the only run of the game for the Nationals, who had won four straight coming into the series. Jordan Zimmermann (12-4) was touched for two runs on eight hits with six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings of work. It was his first loss since May 29 as he was 4-0 in his previous seven starts.

Andres Torres' hit gives Giants a win
San Francisco Chronicle - almost 4 years
Andres Torres' hit gives Giants a win The Giants have won games because of Buster the Hitter, Buster the Slugger, Buster the Catcher, Buster the Thrower and Buster the Game Caller. When it comes to foot speed, Buster Posey is no Buster Keaton (who is?), but smarts can be as dangerous as swiftness, and Posey's keen baserunning Wednesday helped the Giants win 4-3 in 10 innings and avoid getting swept by the Phillies in a three-game series at home for the first time since 1984. Andres Torres' single off Antonio Bastardo gave the Giants their fifth walk-off victory, and it was Posey's alertness that set it up. When Bastardo bounced a pitch to catcher Carlos Ruiz, Posey got a huge jump from second and easily beat Ruiz's throw to third. Of their 20 wins, eight have come with the game tied or the Giants trailing through seven innings. Zito was targeted for his fourth win with seven solid innings - no walks, four hits, including Kevin Frandsen's solo homer - until th ...

We're Catching Phillies Playoff Fever
Bryn Mawr- Gladwyne Patch - over 4 years
Three Games Out. As of Thursday morning, the Philadelphia Phillies were three games out of the second Wild Card spot in the National League. Unbelievable. Incredible. The sports stations are abuzz with talk about the turnaround that the Philadelphia Phillies, a team given up for dead at the trading deadline in late July, have made. The Fightins' have a history of being one of the best second-half teams in baseball and Manager Charlie Manuel is working his magic. The team also usually has strong Septembers. This one is no different. The recent homestand turned into a six-game sweep over the Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins, making it one of the best winning homestands in franchise history. Last year, the St. Louis Cardinals caught fire in September, rolled through the playoffs and won the World Series. And the Phils had the best record in the playoffs and got knocked out quickly. So the Phils are catching fire at the right time. Meanwhile, the Wild Card comp ...

Utley to Third Base is Right Call
Bethlehem Patch - over 4 years
  The greatest second baseman in Philadelphia Phillies history might make a position change in 2013. Chase Utley started fielding ground balls at third base before Wednesday night's game. And hopefully, he keeps doing it. Because Utley's future with the Phillies is at third base. The move makes perfect sense. Utley, who has been on the disabled list the past two years because of degenerated knees, would be ideal at third where he wouldn't have to take such a pounding from going to his left and right all the time and from having base runners trying to take him out. More important, the move may keep Utley in a Phils uniform for years to come if he's successful. Utley will be playing in the last year of his contract in 2013 so he's doing the right thing by trying to prolong his career. Utley's a smart fellow. After all, he's the one who suggested this move to General Manager Ruben Amaro. No Phillies fan wants to ever see Chase Utley depart the team. He's a fan favo ...

The Philadelphia right- hander gave up home runs to two of the first six batters he faced, but scattered only five more hits during his outing.

The Reds' First Baseman Committed One Of The Dumbest Mistakes In Baseball
Business Insider - over 4 years
With the game tied 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth and a runner on first base, Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Kevin Frandsen came up to the plate to bunt the runner over to second base. Frandsen laid down a good bunt right at Cincinnati Reds first baseman Miguel Cairo, allowing the runner to get to second. And then Cairo — STANDING MERE INCHES AWAY FROM FRANDSEN — somehow missed the tag. The Reds got out of the inning unscathed, but this is embarrassing (via Deadspin).
