Big thing in today's game is limiting the damage. #Phillies got the early offense, have the lead. Need to make it stand up today.
Utley flashes the leather to get the last out in the 2nd..but not before the #Braves cut into the #Phillies lead..5-1 going into the top 3rd
I'm just gonna say it.I just don't see the sense of urgency coming from the #Braves.Way out of sync and not sharp enough for October play.
Nice play, Utley. Let's keep this lead today, Hamels. #pitchingtomatchthehitting
#Phillies enter day knowing they can gain ground with win and lead 5-1 over #Braves
Looked at the #Braves September schedule, which should be easy, but I think this team gags to a 8-22 finish. They're that pathetic right now
Happiness = lazy Sunday afternoon + 1 day left in 3 day weekend. Now if only the #Braves would win.
John Mayberry is on deck, top of inning 3. Today: 1-1. Season: .251 AVG, .713 OPS #JohnMayberryIsOnDeck #PhilliesOnDeck #Phillies
The answer to the #Phillies dodge stump the fans trivia question is 1966
Maholm looks like a toy dog on the mound. His bark is way worse than his bite.
“@ajcbraves: #Braves 1-for-8 with RISP in 1st 2 innings, 2-for-21 in the series” --this says it all. Damn!
Let down again #Braves are just running on fumes. Can't expect the pitching staff to carry you all the time. #howboutsomeruns !
Just had a blue moon and #Braves finally score a run.
Paul Maholm is killing us today!!! Call to bullpen please!!!
Hamels has thrown 42 pitches through 2 IP. Braves 1-for-6 w/ RISP thus far. Opportunities have been there.
CMart is going to be out of bullets by the time he comes in. He's been pitching as much as Maholm has.
Erik Kratz is on deck, top of inning 3. Today: 1-1. Season: .296 AVG, .967 OPS #ErikKratzIsOnDeck #PhilliesOnDeck #Phillies
Maholm fails to get lead off man out for third straight inning walks wigginton after being ahead 1-2. Mayberry up
This is y the #braves won't make te playoffs #embarrassing #choke
This is Dave Z . Special thanks to James McCullough and Ryan Howard who have been out in the field getting the latest updates today...
Yeesss martinez in to pitch for maholm #Notgood #Braves playing like when you walk with your girlfriend don't give a f-bom
Cole stops tomahawks bot2 #Phillies, takes 1
5-1 #Phillies !!
You're walking the league's WORST HITTER to get to Hamels. Okay.
Old #Braves: Spahn & Sain, and pray for rain. New #Braves: Medlen. And just pray.
Cole Hamels is on deck, top of inning 3. Today: 0-1. Season: .228 AVG, .565 OPS #ColeHamelsIsOnDeck #PhilliesOnDeck #Phillies
At least mini mart didn't swing on that IBB #Phillies
You know the Braves are having problems when they intentionally walk Michael Martinez. Even if it is to get to Hamels.
I would take my chances with Michael Martinez if I was the Braves #InningEnder #Phillies
And so they'll walk Martinez to get to Hamels. Obviously, Gonzalez is thinking...I don't know what the hell he's thinking.
"Thanks a bunch you asshole," says Maholm to ump Hickok as he leaves in the 3rd. @sportsandra @PeterMoylan @KrisMedlen54 @TheRegularGuys
Let's get Hamels to ground into a double play and end the inning. NO STRIKEOUT.
Between the #Royals, #braves, and the #pirates, I'm having a bad baseball weekend. @thoughtdevourer and her #athletics are still golden.
Jimmy Rollins is on deck, top of inning 3. Today: 1-1. Season: .247 AVG, .720 OPS #JimmyRollinsIsOnDeck #PhilliesOnDeck #Phillies
It is what it is...but if #Braves blow chance at playoffs in Chipper's final season...what a terrible waste. Big changes needed.
"Cole Hamels" sounds like every asshole who cheated on Molly Ringwald in every 80s movie ever. #Phillies
Ground rule double for Cole Hamels...7-1 Phillies in the 3rd. #Braves
Did they just intentionally walk Martinez.. Batting less than 200 I think even he was surprised #Phillies
Intentionally walk Michael Martinez (.384 OPS) to face Cole Hamels (.575 OPS). Smart
Mark my words, Freddy Gonzalez makes a move in 3rd inning that could be big in keeping #Braves in this game
Wow pretty sure Maholm was teary eyed after being yanked off the field by the Braves. Kind of shitty that the cameraman made that noticeable
Hamels -- yes, Hamels -- hits a ground-rule double over CF fence to drive in 2 more runs, #Phillies up 7-1 on #Braves in 3rd
Hamels hits a ground rule double, #Phillies add on two more to make the lead 7-1.
#Hamels hits a ground-rule double. 7-1 #Phillies still with one out.
0-2 pitch to Cole Hamels and he drives a double to center. If that's not a sign...
Cole Hamels with a 2 run groundrule double. Phillies up 7-1!
