PHILADELPHIA -- It has been a remarkably hard climb back.
But the Phillies are .500 for the first time since June 4 following Tuesday's 9-7 victory over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. The Phils, who have won six consecutive games, are 71-71 as they make an improbable push for a National League Wild Card with 20 games to play.
Phils hold off Fish, win sixth straight, return to .500
Yes, as incredible as it seems, both they and the Brewers still have a chance. I don't like the new playoff system, but at least it's keeping folks interested in the season a while longer.
I think this calls for a Phillie Phanatic video, don't you?
