The Phillies lost yet another series to a beatable team over the weekend, this time to the Blue Jays. Here are five things we learned from the series.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Phillies lost a series to a beatable team. They dropped two of three games to the fourth-place Blue Jays, bringing their 2018 record to 70-60. The first two games were very winnable, taking a lead in each. It is now their sixth series in a row without winning a single one, with the only solace being a series split with the Red Sox.
Thankfully, the Braves also lost two games over the weekend, keeping Philadelphia three games behind them in the NL East. The division remains very close with 32 games left to play this year.
With the Blue Jays series now wrapped up, let’s take a look at five things we learned over the weekend.
