Another lost series drives the Phillies further into an endless pit, but they return home looking to rebound in a big way
Losers in 17 of their last 21 games, the Phillies have found their lowest of lows in an endless season. After a strong 7-2 victory over the Pirates, the Phils have dropped two straight with no thanks to their offense.
Now back in their own beds, the Phillies have an opportunity to create some damage at home against the first place Colorado Rockies.
This year’s worst-to-first Cinderella team, Colorado has the second most wins in baseball and sits atop the National League West at 27-17.
Playing in the thin altitude the offense has supported a pitching staff with a major home disadvantage. They’ve scored the fifth-most runs in the league while averaging five runs a game.
With a strong core consisting of Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon, D.J. LeMahieu, and Nolan Arenado the Rockies are ready to roll in Philadelphia.
