The Philadelphia Phillies are in a bad spot yet again.
They’ve lost three in a row, including the series opener against the dismal Colorado Rockies, in which the Phillies bullpen blew their 30th save of the season, setting a new franchise single-season record.
Can they snap the skid and rewrite their September Struggles narrative tonight?
