Stop me if you’ve heard this before, “And another disappointing week”. The Phillies were swept by the Texas Rangers and lost 2 of 3 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. They returned home with a 2-7 record on their road trip. During the past week, the Phillies scored 11 runs in their 5 losses. No surprise that their starting pitchers absorbed the loss in 4 of those 5 games. They return home to face the first place Colorado Rockies and the fading Cincinnati Reds.
Lehigh Valley rallied late (again) and held on to win, again.
Reading rallied late but fell short.
Clearwater blew a spectacular start by Jose Taveras and lost in eleven.
