Ugh: Phils Waste A Hamels Gem in Extras With Little Offense

Ugh: Phils Waste A Hamels Gem in Extras With Little Offense
June 3, 2011, 8:13 pm

See, the problem is, Charlie Manuel brought Danys Baez into the game in the 12th inning instead of waiting until the 13th inning. As we all know, Danys Baez throws like frickin' Cy Young when appearing in the 13th inning of games or later.

Alas, the Phillies lost to the frickin' Pirates 2-1 in extra innings on Friday night, wasting a beautiful outing from Cole Hamels. Not only did Cole throw 8 innings of one hit, one run ball, but he also smacked a third of the Phillies hits on the night. While Cole can definitely swing a bat, that says a lot about the rest of the offense on the evening.

Howard, Vic, Raul, Dom, and Ruiz were a combined 0-21 on the evening.

Game. Set. Lose to the Pirates.

Back at it tomorrow with KK. Gotta get a W against this Pittsburgh team.
