Phillies rise in Week 3 Power Rankings

The Phillies pulled out a couple of extra-inning wins with the help of improved pitching. However, a tough slate awaits them over the next couple weeks.

Before the 8th, the Phillies hadn't hit back-to-back-to-back HRs in 9 years. Last time: 6/13/08 - by Chase Utley, Ryan Howard & Pat Burrell

Phillies take the lead with three straight homers (1:07)
Kemp goes deep for opposite-field HR (0:32)

Jeremy Hellickson notched five K's with a 1.88 ERA while picking up the win in seven innings of work on Friday vs. the Braves. The Phillies are 4-0 when Hellickson starts (3-9 in all other games). (Rich Schultz/Getty Images)

It's bad enough that Jose Reyes is hitting .102, but he dropped a pop fly with two outs in the eighth and Andres Blanco tied the game with a ground-rule double. The Phillies would be ahead if Freddy Galvis had reached second on his pop-up, but he didn't run out of the batter's box and was only on first. So, bad inning for everyone!

Phillies place Howie Kendrick on DL with abdominal strain. Recall RHP Mark Leiter from Lehigh Valley. Tough health week for their rentals. Also lost Clay Buchholz, probably for the year (flexor tear)

Can Cesar Hernandez keep the pace up? (0:56)

Bryce Harper is so locked in. Fights back from 0-2 to hit a 3-run walkoff. First time he's hit a walkoff HR with his team trailing.

On this 70th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's debut for the Brooklyn Dodgers, we remember that other National League teams' players had clandestine boycott plans. Andy Seminick, Al Gionfriddo, Dewey Williams and Hank Wyse told Outside the Lines in 1997 on-camera interviews that their teams -- the Phillies, Pirates and Cubs -- had discussions and votes in cahoots with other ballclubs, but the league-wide plot ultimately fell apart and the extent of the NL players' unrest over the end of the color barrier remained a secret for half a century.

ESPN Stats and Information  

There were quite a few long balls hit on Wednesday. Three of the five longest home runs went at least 430 feet deep.

Hansel Robles' claim to fame: The Elias Sports Bureau reports he's the 1st reliever to allow a slam on his 1st pitch since Bo Schultz to Nori Aoki - 8/5/14
