Saturday's longest home runs
Nelson Cruz's monster 454-foot blast at Target Field led the way on Saturday. Kendrys Morales' 433-footer was No. 30 on the year, while Trey Mancini's 432-foot homer was his third in as many career starts. Maikel Franco and Stephen Piscotty round out the list.
The Mets fell behind by 10 runs early and finished just short of what would have been the largest comeback victory in team history, losing 10-8 to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.
Friday's longest home runs
Nelson Cruz's 463-foot, two-run blast against the Twins paces the longest home runs from Friday. Two pairs of teammates round out the list of long balls: the Phillies' Darin Ruf and Maikel Franco, and the Nats' Wilson Ramos and Danny Espinosa.
Michael Conforto hit a three-run homer that capped a six-run rally in the fifth inning, Hansel Robles gave a big boost from the bullpen and the New York Mets beat Philadelphia 10-5 Friday night.
Thursday's longest home runs
J.T. Realmuto and Justin Upton both hit 443-foot homers to pace the competition on Thursday. The most impactful blast on the list came off the bat of Yasmani Grandal, who crushed a go-ahead grand slam against the Rockies in the seventh inning.

Amazing note from the Elias Sports Bureau! The Mets last night became the 1st team ever to win a game by erasing two deficits of 2+ runs in the 9th inning or later with HRs
Asbrubal Cabrera hit a three-run drive in an 11th-inning comeback to lift the Mets to a dramatic 9-8 win over the Phillies that assured them of remaining in the NL wild-card lead.
Jeanmar Gomez has been decent as a closer this season, but his recent skid could have the Phillies looking at other options for 2017.

A day after the Mets jaw-dropping loss to the Braves, they'll face Phillies starter Adam Morgan. There are 2 ways to look at it. Morgan has the highest hard-hit rate among pitchers with at least 90 innings pitched. But, he also has a 2.35 ERA in his last 4 starts.
Middle of the order carries Phils to win
Maikel Franco, Tommy Joseph and Cameron Rupp each had multiple hits and RBIs in the Phillies' win over the White Sox on Wednesday. It's the first time in over nine years that Philly's starters in the Nos. 3-5 spots of the lineup did that in the same game, per the Elias Sports Bureau. Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Pat Burrell combined to last accomplish the feat.
Tommy Joseph homered, doubled and drove in three runs and Jerad Eickhoff outpitched Chris Sale as the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Chicago White Sox 8-3 Wednesday night.
How could J.P. Crawford impact the Phillies?
Freddy Galvis has progressed nicely in Philly, but Crawford still represents the future at shortstop. Tony Blengino breaks down how Crawford, whom he calls "Jeter-esque," could impact the Phillies in 2017. Future breakout rookies (Insider)
Odubel Herrera is red hot
Herrera went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs on Tuesday and has 15 hits with two homers over his last seven games. The last Phillies player with that many hits and HRs over a seven-game span was Chase Utley in 2014, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
Odubel Herrera kept up his hitting surge with three hits and three RBI, and the Philadelphia Phillies held off a late Chicago White Sox rally in a 7-6 win Tuesday night.
Phillies fall in Power Rankings
Not only has it been a rough season for the Phils, but their inability to flip Jeanmar Gomez at the trade deadline could haunt them. The right-hander has seen his numbers decline sharply since July 31. Week 24 Power Rankings
Ryan Howard gets his knee drained
Howard's Philly farewell tour has been put on hold. The first baseman was scratched on Sunday and received treatment on his knee. With just five home games left, the Phillies are hopeful that Howard can return quickly and play the season-ending series at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia Inquirer
J.T. Realmuto delivered a go-ahead infield single in the eighth, Christian Yelich hit the tying home run earlier in the inning and the Marlins rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Phillies Sunday.

With Freddy Galvis' HR today, 8 different players have hit 20 HR as a shortstop this year. The Elias Sports Bureau reports that's the most ever in one year. Incredible how much offense is produced by middle infielders this season
