The Phillies are playing with a "a different energy" this year, the latest example of which was Ryan Howard's walk-off homer in a 4-3 win over the Indians in 11 innings.
The Phillies are 6-1 since manager Pete Mackanin moved the pitcher to the eight-hole. If it isn't broke, don't fix it, says Mackanin.
This week's Future Phillies Report begins with right-hander Zach Eflin and first baseman Tommy Joseph, who are both standing out at AAA early.
