Yeah you need to drink to watch this offense, not just one drink, you need about 10 drinks to watch this offense wale away at pitches.
The Phillies only had one hit through the first eight innings today, that hit was a leadoff single in the bottom of the first inning from Jimmy Rollins.
The Phillies made Cubs righty Matt Garza look like a fricken Cy Younger out there, it was really hard to even watch this game this afternoon. Garza pitched seven innings of shutout ball, then the Cubs went to the bullpen and the Phillies could still not hit them.
Phillies were able to get the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning somehow, the Phillies would get a run off of a bases loaded walk but could not get anymore and lost to the Cubs 5-1.
The Cubs would score first this afternoon after a leadoff double, a misplayed ball out in right field by Hunter Pence where Pence came in but the ball went over his head, then an RBI ground out in the top of the second inning. Kendrick would however got out of the inning with only allowing one run, it could have been a lot worse.
The Cubs would manufacture another run in the top of the third inning, the doom starts to set in because you really don’t know if this offense will be even able to come back from a 2 nothing deficit.
Joe Mather took Kyle Kendrick deep for a solo shot in the top of the fourth inning giving the cubbies a 3-0 lead, that was just Joe Mather’s second home run since his rookie season of 2008.
Kendrick pitched six innings today and allowed two earned runs off of five hits today, at least he went three innings more than his last start.
Juan Pierre again proved that he completely sucks at everything in this game today, in the bottom of the first inning with Hunter Pence at bat he tried to go to second on a wild pitch and was thrown out. Now explain this to me, how does Mr. speedy boy get thrown out at second on a wild pitch? Yes he sucks that much.
213th consecutive regular season sellout today at Citizens Bank Park.
It was the Phanatic’s birthday today guys, The Phillie Phanatic made his debut 34 years ago at Veterans Stadium.
