Phillies Lose to the Worst Team in Baseball

The Philadelphia Phillies lose to the worst team in baseball, 3-2. In one of the most baffling seasons, the Philadelphia Phillies can’t get out of their own way. An important road trip did not start off well as team Philadelphia dropped a 3-2 decision to the 38-81 Arizona Diamondbacks. Did I mention the D’ Backs are 39 games out of first place?


Bryce Harper hit a mammoth homer to give Philly a 1-0 edge but, an RBI double from Josh Rojas followed by an eventual game-winning two-run homer from Josh VanMeter was too much to overcome, apparently. The best they could muster was Brad Miller scoring on a wild pitch.

Kyle Gibson went 6 innings with 7 hits, a pair of walks, striking out 5. JD Hammer finished with two innings and four strikeouts. Phillies lose to the worst team in baseball. Just embarrassing.
