Philadelphia Phillies cut magic number to just 1 in playoffs wild-card bid

PHILADELPHIA - J.T. Realmuto's Phillies now need just one more victory — or one more loss by the Milwaukee Brewers — to end Philadelphia's 11-year postseason drought.And the three-time All-Star catcher in his ninth season in the big leagues finally wants a taste of the playoffs himself, too.So of course Realmuto is keeping tabs on what the Brewers do, watching them on a cellphone in the clubhouse after helping Philadelphia beat the Washington Nationals 8-1 Sunday in a game shortened to six innings by a downpour."This is what you play for, obviously.

We play to win and get to the postseason and win the World Series. So the fact that I haven’t been able to do that yet is obviously extremely disappointing for me," said Realmuto, who threw out a would-be base stealer in the third inning and hit his 22nd homer of the season in the sixth.

"It’s fun to be in the race and fun to have a chance."Philadelphia and interim manager Rob Thomson took three of four from the worst-in-the-majors Nationals to improve to 86-73 after getting to town on a five-game losing streak. Combine Sunday's victory with a 4-3 loss by the Brewers (84-75) against the Miami Marlins in 12 innings, and the Phillies hold a two-game lead for the third NL wild-card berth with three games left.Kyle Schwarber and Bryson Stott provided three RBIs apiece for Philadelphia, and Zack Wheeler (12-7) threw five scoreless innings.Starting Monday, Philadelphia heads to Houston, and Milwaukee hosts Arizona.

The Phillies hold the tiebreaker over the Brewers if they finish with identical records."Relying on other people isn't really a plan," Thomson said about the notion that a loss by the Brewers would get his team into the playoffs. "We’ve got to get it done."Fans opened

Thieves steal more than 1,000 gallons of diesel from Houston-area gas station
HOUSTON - Houston police are looking for thieves responsible for stealing more than 1,000 gallons of fuel from a local gas station.For three straight days, investigators believe burglars stole roughly 350 gallons of diesel from the Fuqua Express in Southeast Houston. In total, roughly 1,100 gallons of fuel were taken.RELATED: Fuel thieves targeting gas stations, stealing dozens of gallons"People are trying to make a buck," said Jerry Thayil, manager of Fuqua Express. "This is not the way to make a buck."Police believe the burglars are using an elaborate method to take the fuel. On surveillance video, a lookout car can be seen at nearby gas pump. Then, a van parks over the station’s gas caps designed to store fuel underground. Using a trap door, some sort of suction device, and a storage unit, investigators believe the thieves were able to quietly pump hundreds of gallons of diesel into their vehicle.MORE CRIME AND PUBLIC SAFETYAll three incidents took place in broad daylight. Thayil’s says paying customers nearby didn’t notice. The person responsible, or people, never get out of the van."You wouldn’t see anything," said Thayil. "There’s only an 8-inch clearance from the van, to the [ground]. They have a trap door inside their van. They pull up the trap door, break the lock of our tank cap, and insert a tube there and start the pump. It took them about 15 minutes to get roughly [350 gallons] of diesel."The gas station is locally owned and operated by Thayil’s father. He estimates the stolen diesel to be worth more than $5,000.On a fourth straight day last week, Thayil says the same group comes back to try another fuel burglary. However, Thayil had been watching surveillance video."Don’t try that over here again," said
