Emotional reaction immediately after the game
They scored runs again!!!
Less emotional reaction after thinking about it a bit
I was worried that Saturday’s offensive outburst was a fluke, but maybe it was a genuine awakening. Let’s see if they can continue the hot hitting.
Tony Cingrani was the second straight Reds starter to get knocked around by the Phillies’ lineup.
The Phillies have yet another off-day. This will be their third in the past week.
Link of Interest
Cole Hamels‘ 100 career victories prove that he’s a good pitcher and was a wise draft choice by the Phillies. But the fact that he mixes in some clunker starts may show that he still needs to do some work if he wants to be considered one of the team’s all-time greats.
Tweet of Importance
Phillies 11-3 (.786) on weekends this season (Sat & Sun).

So maybe the key is to have it rain more during the week?
