The Phillies couldn’t stay perfect for the 2017 season as they lost their second game of the season to the Reds by a 2-0 score.
Well, I guess expecting the Phillies to win every single game this season was a bit of a stretch.
After winning on Opening Day, the Phils fell back to .500 as they received their first loss of the season. Jerad Eickhoff was stuck with the loss without really deserving it, the offense struggled, and the rain as usual played a factor. Hopefully, they can bounce back Thursday and win the series with Clay Buchholz on the mound.
Anyway, here’s five observations I had from Wednesday’s shutout loss to the Reds.
