The Phillies handled the Washington Nationals the way they should have on Wednesday night at Citizen's Bank Park. The team is starting to pull things together and act more like a team that is ready to win and build upon that. Yes, I know it's only the Nationals but the Phillies have turned it up a notch or two in the last 5 days. Jason Werth has been playing like a right fielder who is possessed. He is trying to throw runners out from right field at first base, hitting grand slams like the one he hit tonight! What more could he do to contribute to the success of this team?
There are 18 games left in the regular season as of the end of play today, September 16, 2009. Six of those games are against the Marlins. Stay tuned, there is still a lot of baseball to be played during this final stretch!
