We need to celebrate this before it slips through our fingers forever like grans of sand. Sad, sad grains of sand.

Jeff Manship is sad and/or pensive here.

The Phillies won a baseball game yesterday. Yes, it's true!

Yes, it's just one game that the Phillies won. But I think we should call it a winning streak. If we waited for an actual winning streak, well, we'd look pretty much like we do now, since that's what we've been doing for most of the season.

Ethan Martin and Jeff Manship are tonight's pitchers. They both have ERAs over 6 (Manship's is over 7) and just a handful of innings pitched this season. Though I feel like Manship has the advantage, if only because when I say his name, I think of a ship filled with attractive men. A nautical ship? A space ship? Depends on what mood I'm in.

Discuss the game in the comments below.
