It took just five minutes on Monday afternoon for a 3-1 loss to Arizona to be decided at Citizens Bank Park. Jeremy Hellickson threw 10 pitches, which resulted in three quick hits. The first three batters scored and the Phillies were in a hole. Scoring more than three runs in a single game again proved to be quite an arduous task for baseball's lowest-scoring team. The Phillies have scored three runs in their last 35 innings. It has been a week since the Phillies provided their starting pitcher with more than two runs of support.

Tyler Goeddel has started only twice in the last 10 days. Before Monday, his last hit was on June 11. But in the Phillies' 3-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, it was Goeddel who briefly breathed life back into a listless Phillies offense. "Goeddel swung the bat pretty well," manager Pete Mackanin said. "That was a sign of hope right there. " Goeddel doubled on a line drive to center field in the second inning, driving in Andres Blanco. Then in the seventh, Goeddel singled on a ground ball to left, advancing Cameron Rupp to second.

I CAN FEEL the moment slipping through our fingers, and I just can't have it. Not without at least pausing to acknowledge the relentless daily drip of gun violence in Philadelphia. So I have an idea. I'll get into that in a moment. For a little while, the world seemed to stop as we recoiled from the latest mass shooting. This time, in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando on June 12. We cried. We prayed. We yelled: Enough is enough! Something must be done! And then, a week after the deadliest mass shooting in modern history by a lone gunman, the Senate voted down four gun policy measures.

A Philadelphia man faces a litany of charges after allegedly telling authorities Saturday that he had buried an illegally purchased loaded rifle in a city park and omitting that he had buried a homemade pipe bomb with it. Compounding the scare, according to court records, police did not discover the explosive until they had returned to the Northwest Detective Division at 5960 N. Broad St. in Ogontz because it had been buried inside a gym bag with the...

'HE'LL BE gone by the Fourth of July," the snowy-haired owner of the local hardware store said when I stopped in over the weekend. "They just said they're not going to cut Howard," I said. "Not Howard," he said. "The manager. Mackanin. They've got to get rid of him. " Just a little over a month ago the Phillies were seven games over .500, a half game out of first place, and Pete Mackanin was everyone's runaway choice for manager of the year. But this is Philadelphia, the birthplace of knee-jerk.

A life celebration will be held Wednesday, June 22, for Walter R. Hertler, 74, of Bryn Mawr, a trailblazing Philadelphia restaurateur, who died Thursday, June 2, of cancer at Bryn Mawr Hospital. Known as "Wally," Mr. Hertler had a knack for anticipating where the city's next hot spot would be, and moved quickly to establish elegant bar-eateries that helped spawn Center City's "restaurant renaissance" in the 1970s. In 1976, he took an antique bar from a derelict tavern and installed it in a building at Fourth and Bainbridge Streets in Queen Village.

Two Philadelphia men suspected of participating in a city drug ring have been charged with trafficking 250 grams of heroin, Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced Monday. Santos Javier Alvarez-Ruiz, 38, of Mayfair, and Felipe Fontanez-Burgos, 42, of Castor, were arrested earlier this month and each charged with conspiracy and a number of drug-related counts, Kane's office said. At a news conference Monday morning in Philadelphia, Kane said the seized heroin had a street value of about $85,000.

The Phillies, in the midst of a monstrous freefall, have reached a crossroads in their 2016 season. They are at the corner of Patience and Prodding, a tricky place for a team filled with young players whom the franchise would like to see develop into winning ones. There is a big difference between sticking with youngsters who are struggling and doing nothing about a baseball team gone bad like the Phillies have over the last month. Pete Mackanin is doing what he can as the manager.

Doubling down on Philadelphia's high-profile support for immigrants and refugees, Mayor Kenney on Monday pushed back against national candidates who "use immigration as a political football. " "I'm not going to allow anyone, Donald Trump or anyone," to impugn immigrants and refugees, he said. "Philadelphia is going to be a sanctuary for people who need protection. " Kenney's remarks were part of a City Hall reception for World Refugee Day, an international observance held annually on June 20, now in its 15th year.

The doors to the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park displayed clear instructions Saturday after another Phillies loss: Players were not mandated to report Sunday until 11 a.m., two-and-a-half hours before the first pitch. That is unusual; players typically arrive well before then. But Pete Mackanin has tried everything else to loosen his uptight roster that has descended into the deepest depths of bad baseball. Most of the Phillies still came to the ballpark before 11. They wished the dads in the room a happy Father's Day. The players stepped onto the field for some pregame drills, and shortstop Freddy Galvis pretended to pitch while catcher Cameron Rupp swung an imaginary bat. The team looked loose.
