The Phillies appeared to be legitimate contenders in the National League East throughout the season, but it looks like they are finally coming apart at the end of it. Philadelphia is 2-7 in September entering Wednesday, which has left them six games out of a potential playoff spot.

Can they start to snap out of it? I don’t see it happening on this night — at least not with the re-emerging Strasburg on the hill.

Save for one start, Strasburg spent the majority of the summer on the disabled list, only coming back for good on Aug. 22, when he took on, coincidentally, these same Phillies.
