The Philadelphia Phillies entered the month of September looking to change the narrative the club falters when the playoff push heats up.  So far, they’re proving the naysayers right.  

After playing around .650 baseball from June through August, the Phillies sit at 7-8 for the month of September including being swept by the Giants and Braves.  The Fightin’s have lost four in a row heading into a make it or break it week with six games against potential playoff teams, Toronto and Atlanta respectively.  Anything other than 3-3 might be the death knell for a potential “Red October.”

Despite all the doom and gloom, the Phillies currently hold a three-game lead* –two-games in the win column and the tiebreaker– over Milwaukee for the final National League Wild Card spot with 16-games to go.  

Here are the latest playoff odds for the Fightin Phils.
