UNDATED (AP) -- The Phillies have fired Gabe Kapler after disappointing finish to a season of big expectations. Kapler was dismissed today after going 161-163 in two seasons. Philadelphia failed to live up to the hype following an offseason spending spree highlighted by Bryce Harper's arrival. The team went 81-81, its first non-losing season since 2012. The Phillies were only two games behind in the NL wild-card standings after beating Atlanta on Sept. 18 but lost eight of the next nine, including a five-game sweep at Washington.
