A Note for Today:
The Phillies are playing a traditional double header today against the Marlins after last night was postponed due to rain.
Aaron Harang will get the start for the first game, which could be his last game in a Phillies uniform. Harang has pitched 28 games this year for the Phillies, collecting a 6-15 record for the year with a 4.86 ERA.
The lineup has been solidified as of late, and shows some glimmers of light playing well in the final week of the season.
Newcomers Aaron Altherr and Darnell Sweeney have fit nicely into the playing field, and have shown promise at the plate and in the field. Altherr has hit .250 in 36 games for the Phillies since joining the team in August, which includes 18 extra base hits and 15 walks. Darnell Sweeney has spent just about the same time with the Phillies since being traded to the team through the Chase Utley trade, and although he started out hot at the plate hitting 2 home runs in his first 10 days with the Phillies, he has cooled off going yard only once in September.
The Phillies are still on the verge of clinching the first pick of the Draft for the 2016 year, and able to avoid 100 losses in one season.
Keep your eyes on the prize.
