For Kyle Glogoski, his Class A Advanced debut on Saturday will be one that he and many others remember for a long time, as he combined, along with relievers Tyler Carr and Keylan Killgore, to toss a no-hitter against division rival Daytona.

In five innings, the 20-year-old right-hander struck out five Tortugas batters and walked a pair.  He threw 64 pitches, 45 for strikes.

The New Zealand native, Glogoski, made way for 23-year-old righty Tyler Carr, who worked the next three frames.  Carr, the Phillies' 31st round draft pick last year out of South Alabama, struck out four, while walking one.

Left-hander Keylan Killgore tossed the last inning to close it out with a one-two-three effort thanks to a remarkable catch on the final out by right fielder Matt Vierling.

"Watching Matt run that ball down to end it was an adrenaline rush to say the least but there was never a doubt in my mind he wasn't going to make the play," said Killgore.

"Being a part of something like that is unbelievably special," Killgore added.  "Kyle Glogoski made his first start tonight and he was electric from the beginning.  He pounded the zone and mixed his pitches really well. Tyler Carr came in and just did what he always does. He filled up the zone and induced ground balls with a plus change up. He's just been as consistent as you can be all year."

The 22-year-old was inspired by the two hurlers that preceded him in the contest. Killgore simply wanted to do right by them and the rest of the team to make sure everyone could enjoy and savor an incredible team effort.

Killgore, the Phils' 17th round draft selection out of Wichita State last year, sports a 1-0 record with seven saves, a 1.73 ERA along with an 11.5 K/9 mark in 17 outings this season for the Threshers.

Carr, who opened the 2019 campaign with Lakewood, has a combined 3-1 record with two saves, a 1.25 ERA and a 9.0 K/9 mark in 20 appearances. 

Glogoski started his week by notching the victory in the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star Game with a scoreless frame of work on Tuesday.  He returned from the mid-season break to learn on Thursday that he would be promoted to Clearwater.

To pace the offense and help the team earn a 5-0 win, center fielder Simon Muzziotti collected four hits in five trips to the plate and designated hitter Jhailyn Ortiz launched his 12th home run of the year while driving in two runs and walking once.

The win put Clearwater's second half record at 5-1.  Last week they finished the first half of the season in second place in the Florida State League North division, 5 1/2 games behind division champion Dunedin.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro
