New, comments

Before last night, the Phillies were winning games. Let’s go back to that.

Losing? In Philadelphia? Folks, that just doesn’t happen around here. This is a Super Bowl town. This is a NCAA National Championship town area. This is a second-round-of-the-NBA-playoffs town. Dropping a rain-drenched contest to the Diamondbacks 8-4? INEXCUSABLE.

Tonight, Jake Arrieta will play the stopper as the Phillies attempt to smother a one-game losing streak. Odubel Herrera and J.P. Crawford are back in the starting lineup and the scuffling Scott Kingery has taken a seat. Head down to the park and cram some dollar dogs in your gullet, or simply sit at home and scarf down the discounted meat product of your choice.
