Wow, what a letdown! Jayson Werth hypes up the entire ballpark with 3 homerun in his first 3 at bats of the game knocking in 8 runs in the process and then pops up foul for an out on his 4th and final at bat. Anyone can go out and pop 3 taters in a row and chase 8 ducks from the pond, but only the immortal go deep 4 times and knock in 9+ runs, Werth is werthless. The Phils were only winning by a score of 10-3, they needed that insurance run in the 7th inning that would have been provided by Jayson had he not weakly popped up...ugh! He simply wasn't man enough to finish the job and seal himself into the history books, what a shame. This lack of desire and focus is just another in the long history of failures of Phillies players...I say bench him!
Other Things for the Crapper:
*Ryan Howard collected a hit in his 8th straight game; average on the rise.
*Grand Pappy Moyer won his 233 game of his career, going 6.2 quality innings.
*Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino seem to be getting their grove back at the top of the lineup; 2 hits apiece last night.
*The bullpen is still defying odds and KO'ing the competition.
*The Phils are tied for 1st place in the NL East with the Florida Marlins.
