Phillies Notables

The Phillies swept both games of Sunday's double header, winning 5-4 and 1-0. They took three games out of four, eliminating the Mets from the National League East.

The Phillies have a magic number of 14. They are 6.5 games above the Florida Marlins, who they play 6 more times.

Andrew Carpenter was optioned to Single-A Lakewood.

With the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Carpenter was 11-6 with a 3.35 ERA. The move was most likely made in order to give him more innings.

You can vote for Raul Ibanez, Shane Victorino, or Chase Utley for the Hank Aaron Award.

In MLB News, Derek Jeter became the Yankees all-time hits leader. He passed Lou Gehrig with 2,722 hits. Ichiro now has nine consecutive 200-hit seasons, setting a Major League Baseball record.
