Game 42 Open Thread: Phillies at Rockies

New, 240 comments

Well that was fun.

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Was a six-game winning streak the most successful the Phillie will be in 2015? Possibly. But with the seriousness with which Maikel Franco is taking his MLB promotion, they can apparently tie any game. Get any hit. Cole any Hamels. As long as they only have to play mediocre-at-best NL West teams for the remainder of the schedule.

There are still two games left in this series, and the Rockies are terrible. With that same lineup that's been hot for some reason, and Grady Sizemore coming off the bench, what can't they do?! What am I even saying.
