Phils falling

The Philadelphia Phillies have had a rough couple of games. They started off hot averaging around seven runs per game. While everyone knows they could not stay on that path all season, it seems like they have gone from hot to cold almost over night.  It is a well known fact that throughout the season the offense goes through slumps where the bats just aren’t making the kind of contact they need.

The starting pitchers all need run support and as of late they have not been getting it.

In last nights game, Cole Hamels took the mound in hopes of carrying on the success that the starting rotation and the Phillies in general have been having.

The Phils ended up losing that game in 12 innings by a score of 6-3.  They only had nine singles in the whole game, but what really did the Phils in was Kyle Kendrick’s less than ideal 12th inning.

The Brewers, on the other hand,

With the top ace Roy Halladay starting it for the Phillies on Wednesday, the fans and the team had high hopes.  Those hopes were quickly shot down when Halladay had over 60 pitches in the fourth inning.  He gave up 10 runs on six runs over 6 2/3 innings.

Teams can win games solely based on pitching and defense.  The Rockies did it in the 60’s.  But the last couple of games, the pitching has been lacking and that is when the bats need to be on fire.

I love accessorizing and putting together outfits and critiquing others' outfits. I spend more money on fashion magazine than I do food and I consider myself and fashion guru and one day other people will consider me that too =]
