Well, another postponement on Friday and another doubleheader on Saturday, making it three in the last 10 days.
Phillies won both against the Marlins and then lost both against the Nationals. So, in an eight-day period, three wins, seven losses and two extra inning games.
Doubleheaders tax a pitching staff and can keep offensive players from getting in a groove, something the Phillies don’t need right now.
Since clinching, they have lost six games. According to Elias Sports Bureau, that’s a first in major league baseball since the World Series era began in 1903.
Now, some good news…Phillies are 46-29 on the road, two wins shy of the club record set in 1976 and tied two years ago. Pitchers have a 3.18 ERA on the road and the offense has scored 318 runs.
