Dignity: Marlins at Phillies Game Thread, May 5, 2013

New, 286 comments

In which the Phillies try to regain the dignity they lost last night.

USA TODAY Sports

It would have been one thing if the Phillies had simply lost last night. In four games with the Marlins, it was bound to happen once. But they didn't just lose. Oh no. They lost by being one-hit by the Marlins. And they wasted a great start by Cole Hamels to boot. How very... Phillies of them.

Today, Roy Halladay seeks to redeem himself once again after a truly terrible start. He gave up eight runs in just 3 2/3 innings against the Indians back on April 30. I really hope he doesn't do that again. The Marlins are tossing Kevin Slowey onto the mound today. Slowey is 0-2 with a 2.15 ERA, which seems to be a product of both luck and the horrible Marlins offense. The Marlins: Making mediocre pitchers look both good and bad at the same time since 2013.
