When you lose a four-game series to an inferior opponent and can’t even get it down when your ace is on the hill, things look grim. For Phillies’ blog The Good Phight, this is that time.
Well, that was just about it. When you lose three of four to a pretty bad team, and only win one because the opposing closer walks five of your hitters in less than an inning, that’s a pretty disastrous series. The icing on the cake being Roy Halladay getting smacked around for six runs in six innings pitched, including a couple home runs.
Oh, and now they go play the Cardinals for four games, and face Carpenter, Wainwright, and Garcia.
What a fun summer in Philadelphia.
