oops. That level of disappointment is distracting.

they made a 5+ Era pitcher that they were facing the first time look like Cy young
Where the game was lost. I know the kid has talent, but the Phils looked worse than the As against him. No idea why. One of the worst days at the plate all year for the Phils - if not the worst, must be second to it. I kept on waiting for SOMETHING to happen. Coach Long on TV saying the Phils would catch up with him second time through the order. Nope. Never touched him.
I can't bear to rewatch any of that game, but I'm trying to remember how Kerkering lost it, and I'm thinking a couple of the hits off him were just so badly mis-hit, they fell. I'm all in with Big Rob on the decision to give him the shot. He'd been dominant until yesterday. The idea that he should have used Dominguez instead is 20/20 hindsight.
Don't even want to remember the AZ guy's name, but he's a some .230 hitter who came off the bench to get 2 huge hits.
Just one of those days when nothing goes right. Never saw that coming.
