I’m shaking my head this monday morning wondering whether this baseball weekend for the Phils were just a dream. Nope, it wasn’t. Oh well…
Halladay didn’t have his stuff yesterday. There was a dent in his “focus”. Red Sox worked their way through the dent and scored big. Phillies, on the other hand, did not.
Until the 9th, then, Werth doubled. Ibanez followed suit with his double. Werth scored. Gload homers. Ibanez scored. That was that.
Final score- 8-3. Phils lose
I’m going to borrow two worthy quotes from my favorite Phils from Todd Zolecki’s article “Phils determined to shake off offense woes”/ mlb.com
“I really don’t worry about this team offensively much,” Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez said Sunday. “Because at any moment, everything will click and we’ll explode and it’ll be the same team that you guys have seen for the last few years. Obviously you’d like to be scoring runs and winning some games, but over the last few days we haven’t done that. But we’re really good about putting the bad days behind us and looking ahead.”
“Over the course of the season, you’re lucky and you’re unlucky,” Phillies right fielder Jayson Werth said. “That just makes us a little unlucky right now. It’s nothing to get too upset about or anything. It’s not like the end of the world. It’s not like we’re not hitting because we’re a bad club. … No big deal. The season continues on and so do the fightin’ Phils
I like what these two Phils have to say! It says “One day at a time, one game at a time” which has always been the Phillies mantra. Also, it says “We still have our Phightin spirit”
Carry on and move forward, Phils!
