Phillies Woes Continue

The Phillies woes continue with a 5-4 loss. The long ball and lack of timely hitting hamstring the Philadelphia Phillies in a 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Colorado Rockies.

Buoyed by homers from Trevor Story, C.J, Cron Garrett Hampton, and a walk-off from Raimal Tapia. Once again, the pitching staff failed to come through and twice handed back two-run leads. Didi Gregorius had an RBI ground out as well as Alec Bohm, plating Bryce Harper to make it 2-0. Bohm who, along with Nick  Maton posted two hits.

Rhys Hoskins went deep with his 4th and Jt Realmuto had a triple among his three hits. Hector Neris surrender a walk-off homer to Tapia to send the Phillies to a 5-4 defeat. The question is “will the Phillies woes continue?” Will they stop leaving so many on base? For more Phillies coverage click here.
