Phils get a win last night in Atlanta

The Phils got a win last night in Atlanta, handing Dallas Keuchel a loss and needing to do what this team needs to keep doing the rest of the way, win. Vince Velasquez managed to bring his 2019 record to 7-7 on the year, as he struck 8 batters and only gave up 2 ER on the night.

The Phils are again tied with the Mets, 4.0 GB in the wild card pursuit, they aren't out of it, but as was said on the most recent podcast and here at, they have to keep winning and the other wild card teams in the race have to lose.

Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee, and the Nationals are in the driver's seat right now, the Phils have to just keep winning while one of these other teams loses. Do I sound like I think the Phillies still have a chance at making it? I'm writing it, but in reality it's probably not going to happen, and I hope I am wrong, I hope people will look back at the most recent columns saying that the team is finished essentially, and me be wrong about it.

A stunning stat from last night's game was the attendance, you've got the Braves playing the best baseball that they have in a long time, yet only attracted 28,843 to the stands. This is a team that is going to the playoffs, and has a good chance of winning it all, where did all their fans go?

Gabe Kapler just spoke on WIP sports radio, 94.1 this morning, he said this:

It's Eflin vs Teheran tonight in Atlanta at 7:20 PM
