A far more interesting study is finding the little motivations that lead to the Phillies’ seemingly innate ability to come from behind to win ball games late. Thursday was the latest instance, as the Phillies picked up their fourth walk-off victory of the season, 3-2 over the Detroit Tigers, sweeping the series and winning for the fifth straight game. Kody Clemens played the hero in this one, lining a base hit to right field to score Trea Turner, exacting some revenge against his former team, but we’ll get into Clemens in a minute, because how the game played out was much more interesting and tells you a lot more about these Phillies, even though they are still a couple games under .500 and sitting eight games out of first place in the N.L. East.

Father Roger was in cushy seat somewhere inside Citizens Bank Park and son Kody’s old Tigers teammates were on the other side of a tight game. The Detroit tradee, a throw-in with reliever Gregory Soto in the offseason deal, was ticketed for another mostly minor league year until Rhys Hoskins wrecked a knee. Then came an injury to his backup, Darick Hall. Now that Hall is healthy, Phillies manager Rob Thomson indicated earlier this week, he can take his time at Lehigh Valley working his way back.

Last week, the Phillies went into Citi Field to play a series against the Mets. New York basically ran the Phils out of town, with Philadelphia scoring just three runs total across all three games. Once again, Phillies players found themselves looking up at their rivals in the standings, a Mets logo firmly imprinted on each of their foreheads. One week later, the Phillies are suddenly ahead of their NL East rivals.

The Los Angeles Dodgers take a red-hot offense into a three-game road series against the Philadelphia Phillies, but their leaky bullpen has been an issue. The Phillies will be up for the challenge, taking a five-game winning streak into the series after a wild 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigerson Thursday. While half a dozen runs in the first four innings of a game usually lead to a successful outcome, the Dodgers did just that in all three games of their just-completed road series against the Cincinnati Reds, but they won just once. In Tuesday’s series opener, the Dodgers had an 8-3 lead in the fourth inning before falling 9-8 when the bullpen gave up five runs.

The game originally was scheduled for Wednesday night but was postponed due to poor air quality caused by smoke from Canadian wildfires. The smoky smell that was present the previous two days in Philadelphia dissipated, and the sky became more clear as the game went on. The 33-year-old Wheeler struck out four of his first six batters.
