If not for a horrible call in the eighth in which Rollins was called out when the first baseman CLEARLY missed the tag, the Phils could have won.
And yet, they didn’t seem very live to me. I’m no expert, but Baltimore was able to poke out the base hits and advance the baserunner when they needed to like a winning ball club. The Phils used every at bat to swing at the fence. What’s up with that? It worked exactly once today.
Were they this poorly managed last year? Do they always take the low percentage shot? Do they only make their bonuses if they hit home runs? They are now 13-21 at home and are only leading the division because the NL east sucks.
