Worth noting

• Entering Thursday's games, the Phillies had climbed within three games of the second National League Wild Card berth. They are 15-4 in their past 19 games.

"It feels good to know that we're still playing for something and we've got a chance," manager Charlie Manuel said. "We're definitely right in the middle of it. It feels good. We've had some help from other teams, of course, and teams have been beating one another. We've been able to put together a streak and put us in a position that we're still in it."

• With starter Tyler Cloyd set for 80-85 pitches at most on Thursday, left-hander Jeremy Horst would probably serve as the bullpen's long reliever, Manuel said.
