I hate baseball: Cardinals 7, Phillies 6

This was the worst game.

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

I hate baseball.

The Phillies lost 7-6 to the Cardinals on a ninth inning home run given up by Seranthony Dominguez. This was a winnable game, and once again the Phillies bullpen gave it away.

But Seranthony wasn’t the only one to blame. In the seventh inning, after a decent start from Vince Velasquez, none other than Tommy Hunter allowed two runs and got charged with a blown save — because at the time, the Phillies were up 4-2.

There were good things, of course. The Phillies scored six runs. Rhys Hoskins went 2-for-5. Odubel Herrera and Carlos Santana hit home runs. But this was not a good thing.

Crawford got hit on the back of the hand early in the game, and this is pretty much the nightmare scenario. He had a .425 OBP since he came back from the DL the first time. The first time. This is not the season we all hoped for J.P. Crawford, but it’s not really his fault.

I don’t want to talk about this game anymore. This one hurt a lot, and in a number of ways. Sleep, take me away.
