Winning fixes everything. Unfortunately for the Philadelphia Phillies, they haven’t tasted a win since Sunday as they got swept by the Tampa Bay Rays in their two-game set at home. Tonight they begin a four-game homestand series against the Arizona Diamondbacks as they will have their work cut out for them.
Last night, the Phillies once again continued the narrative of great pitching but making some unfortunate blunders that cost them the game, losing 7-4 in front of the home crowd. It wasn’t a lack of hitting this time around but more about abysmal and frustrating defensive errors that cost them the game.
Hopefully, the Phillies bounce back tonight against the Diamondbacks as something has to give as they hit the .500 mark at 63-63 at this point in time. Time is ticking to make a statement straight to a postseason run but everything has to come together first.
Pitching, hitting, defense, and teamwork are crucial heading into September. The Phillies need to get on the same page and hopefully, start this series against the Diamondbacks with a big win to boost their confidence as a team once again.
