The Phils were down 8-0 and 10-1 during last night's game, but came storming back late to make it 10-9 in the bottom of the 9th. However, they came up short...that's what she said. The comeback attempt was entertaining, but in the end it's still a loss and therefore doesn't really matter then.
Adam Eaton was the main culprit for the loss, he couldn't even last 3 innings. In his worst outing of the season he blew up for 10 hits and 8 runs (6 earned) in 2.2 awful innings. Stats since joining the Phils- 38 games started, 13-17 record, 262 IP, 309 H, 171 ER, 43 HR, 111 BB, 149 K, and a 5.87 era. Congratulations again Pat Gillick on a mighty fine signing, you GMing genius you.
Since the start of the Marlins series on June 10th the Phils are an atrocious 9-16. Out of sheer dumb luck they're still clinging to 1st place in the NL East, but for how much longer? Pitching is slowly declining and the offense is now in a month long "slump" (I prefer to call it free fall). Patty G keeps talking about landing pitching, which we need, but this team needs some fire on offense too.
