The Phillies lost yet another series to the Pirates as their skid continues. Let’s take a look at five things we learned from the series.
The Phillies lost their seventh straight series – the longest streak since 2006 – after losing both Saturday and Sunday’s games to the Pirates. They seemed poised for a strong series after a solid overall win Friday night, but that fell apart during the weekend matinees.
With 17 losses in their last 21 games, the Phils are crashing and burning on their way to the bottom of the standings after a strong start to the season. The hope was for this year that the team would be able to float around .500, but they are now 15-26 so far this season.
Even when the team seems impossible to watch, there are still some things to glean from watching it. Here are five things we learned from the Phillies-Pirates series this weekend.
