Their loss last night officially ended the Phillies’ postseason hopes, clearing the way for the Braves to win the division. Fish fans have three more chances to catch a game at LoanDepot Park, so take advantage while you still can!

What to watch for this weekend:

There hasn’t been much to cheer about and even moral victories seem futile now, but I know I’ll miss the frustrating Fish once the season is over. Soak up all the baseball you can this weekend. It’s a long, dark offseason.
