Phils, Doc Look for Series Split with Cards

Phils, Doc Look for Series Split with Cards

It's understandable if the Phillies were a bit sluggish on Sunday night against the Cardinals after celebrating their division crown on Saturday night. Now that we're two nights removed from the champagne popping however, and with Roy Halladay on the mound, it's time to focus on fine tuning the machine for the postseason.

It's Roy Halladay (18-5, 2.34) looking for his 19th win of the season going against right-hander Kyle Lohse (13-8, 3.62).

Tonight's Lineup:

1.) Jimmy Rollins, 2.) Shane Victorino, 3.) Chase Utley, 4.) Hunter Pence, 5.) Raul Ibanez, 6.) Placido Polanco, 7.) Ross Gload (1B), 8.) Carlos Ruiz, 9.) Roy Halladay

From the Notes: With a win tonight, Roy Halladay would become the first Phillies pitcher to record at least 40 wins over a two-season span since Hall of Famer Steve Carlton did so in 1979 (18) and 1980 (24) for a total of 42.

The Phillies magic number for home field throughout the playoffs sits at 1. So either a win tonight or a Brewers loss will get that out of the way.

7:05 from Citizens Bank Park. Let's see if anybody can one-up JVR's power.

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws


Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Oh man, oh man, oh man. It's finally here. The 2017-18 Sixers season is underway with our squad locked in a pretty tightly contested game down in Washington after a quarter of play.

We've already seen Joel Embiid attempt to destroy the world -- and get fouled.

But the most buzzed about moment from the first frame of the Sixers' young season was clearly when Markelle Fultz went to the foul line and... well, tossed up some ugly bricks.

This isn't the first time we've seen this but it is the first time non-preseason Sixers fans are seeing it. We wondered aloud if the Sixers were doing the right thing with Fulz prior to tonight's game. The lack of information on his injuries is troubling. So what's the deal with that form?

Well, Twitter had a field day with it.

Although Fultz's shoulder looked perfectly fine on this delicious block! He also had a couple of early buckets.

It's a long season, rook. Just please work on that free throw motion.
