Phils try to win the series in SF before heading home

A series win for the Phillies has been very rare this year for this Phillies team. The Phils will go for a series win this afternoon in San Francisco.

The Phillies are now a full 15 games behind the Washington Nationals and the Phils home win/loss record of 26-36 is the worst in the National League.

In yesterday's game, Antonio Bastardo was tagged with his second loss in a week, and he had another blown save thrown in during this week as well. Bastardo's ERA has ballooned to 4.64 as well.

Ryne Sandberg doesn't seem like he has an answer to the Phillies woes this season. His postgame recaps almost sound like a carbon copy of one another, in this the worst season since the Phillies won the World Series, now 6 years ago.

This week's ESPN's Power Rankings had the Phillies at 26 of 30 MLB teams.

It's game 124 on the season for the Phillies today.

For the Little League World Series, it's Taney Baseball from Philadelphia on ESPN2 at 7pm tonight.
