And the road trip started off so well.

Driving around yesterday listening to the game, there was a stat that surprised even me relayed along. Including yesterday’s loss, the Phillies are 6-23 in their last 29 games in San Francisco. That’s just horrendously bad, something that boggles the mind. There were so many issues yesterday that creeped up on the team - Taijuan Walker worrying us even more, Trea Turner still not able to come through, not hitting with runners in scoring position again - that is probably lost that the team was down 4-0 after a demoralizing start to the game by Walker and they still managed to come back to tie it up.
