Phillies Bats Go Cold as Rockies Take First Game of Series


Heading into the 2022 MLB season, this Philadelphia Phillies lineup was supposed to be one of the largest producing units in baseball. Home runs, dingers, moonshots, whatever your choice word may be, were supposed to be launched in ballparks all over the nation. Unfortunately, that has yet to come to fruition this season for the Phillies. In fact, aside from a few outings, this Philly lineup has been largely toothless. It has lacked chemistry. There is no direction. That was on full display on Monday night when they dropped the first game of a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies.
