Game Thread 7/15: Dodgers at Phillies

Is momentum a thing? No? What about winning a series, is that still a thing?

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies came back from the break looking no more effective than they went into it. The result? A series loss to the Nationals is two fashions exemplary of their two issues: absentee offense and bullpen instability.

They scraped out a win in game three, and hopefully they can ride an on-fire Maikel Franco through four games with the (ugh) Dodgers. A couple wins here would go along way toward making this team look like it deserves a wild card spot. CONVINCE US.
