Matt Moore hurt his back during BP yesterday and he’s going on the IL. Cristopher Sánchez is back. He’ll be in play for Sunday’s bullpen game.

Andrew Knapp will catch Aaron Nola tonight. It’s raining but should clear. Phillies facing a righty named Connor Overton.

Eleven of the Phillies' 20 games in September have been decided by one run. The strain is evident on the top pitchers, but there's only 90 innings to go:

Phillies 4, Orioles 3. The Phillies conquer Baltimore with another one-run thriller. McCutchen and Realmuto had big hits. The Phillies are 78-74.

Credit to the Orioles third-base coach for sending the catcher, who was out by six feet even with a flat-footed throw.

The Orioles absolutely smoked Cam Bedrosian in the eighth inning and he survives because Matt Vierling saved his ass.

Phillies are short in bullpen tonight. Cam Bedrosian is warming up for the eighth inning to face the heart of Baltimore's lineup. The game is tied.

Zack Wheeler has thrown 78 pitches in five scoreless innings. Here's betting that soft 100-pitch limit is out the door tonight.

You have to admit, it's wild the Phillies have scored three runs -- one of them an auto runner -- in 23 innings against a historically bad Orioles pitching staff.

Joe Girardi on starting Didi Gregorius against a lefty: "If we're going to do anything, Didi's got to hit. That's the bottom line. I like the experience that he has going out there every day in this type of situation. I'm going with the experience."

The @IronPigs getting some added fire power for the #FinalStretch. Excited to see guys like Stott, O’Hoppe, Muzziotti and Morales. Some of the top prospects in the system now at AAA

Upon further review, the best part of Salisbury’s foul ball was @ToddZolecki caught on camera praying that the broadcast saw it all. Find friends like this.

Phillies now have a six-man bench by activating Travis Jankowski and demoting Damon Jones. But Didi Gregorius, a .156/.272/.273 hitter against lefties, is in the lineup vs. a lefty. No other options, it appears.
