NL Standings and Team Stats
Phillies Team Stats vs. 2013 and vs. the Reds
Today In Phillies History
1962: The Phillies win both ends of a double-header to finish a sweep of the Mets, handing them their 17th straight loss, a major-league record.
1965: Johnny Callison hit 3 homers in a game for the second time in his career, leading the Phillies to a 10-9 win over Chicago
1972: In the midst of a streak of 18 losses in 19 games, the Phillies tried to change their luck with "Turn it Around Day." The lineup was announced in reverse order, last names first. The seventh inning strech took place in the third inning. The scoreboard welcomed groups not in attendance. Ushers wore their hats backwards with their nametags on their backs. It didn't help, as the team dropped a 4-3 decision to Houston.
1990: Von Hayes ties a team and National League record with 5 walks in a game against St. Louis
1915: Grover Cleveland Alexander threw a one-hitter in a 3-0 victory against St. Louis. Artie Butler's bloop single with two out in the ninth inning was his team's only hit.
1948: Richie Ashburn ties a rookie record by getting a hit in his 23rd consecutive game to help the Phils beat Chicago 6-5.
1979: Steve Carlton beat the Astros 8-0 with a 1-hitter at the Astrodome. Jeff Leonard had the only hit with a single to lead off the 7th.
1950: Richie Ashburn starts the game in center field -- the first game of a streak that lasted 730 games, fifth longest in National League history. The streak ended when a spring training injury prevented him from starting the 1955 season.
1983: Steve Carlton passes Nolan Ryan to take the all-time strikeout lead, fanning six for a career total of 3,526. The two will trade the lead for the next year, until Ryan takes it for good in September 1984.
1988: Team president Bill Giles fires GM Woody Woodward after only 7 months on the job.
2000: Pete Zamora throws a 7-inning perfect game at AA-Reading, and wins 6-0.
