PhilliesThe Phillies have it going. Eventually they may have their player payroll collapse in on them, but for now, they are hitting on all cylinders.

Case in point, Weds’ games. The Phillies had a double-header that saw Citizens Bank Park filled to standing-room only for both games. That helped bolster the overall league attendance numbers, pushing ballparks to 66 percent of capacity, compared to 62 percent last week, and 55 percent two weeks ago on Weds.

Here’s Weds’ numbers and promos:
