MLB: San Francisco Giants at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

A truly dispiriting loss, a game that should have been comfortably in hand, fell apart for the Phillies. It exposed their lack of depth in the pitching staff, something that was a concern to start the season. It exposed their inability to get big hits still, as they let a golden opportunity go by in the early innings to jump out to a big lead. It was just a really bad loss by the team. They’ll have a quick turnaround today, which is good because it’ll mean they have to get over soon. But there are real problems with this team that need fixing.
