After a rocky top of the first, Cole Hamels settled in and limited the Nationals to just one run over 8 innings on Wednesday night. But despite their vaunted offense and the bandbox dimensions of their home park, the Phillies could only manage a single hit.
(That's all we got? Just one goddamn hit? /Uecker)
Unfortunately, the hit didn't clear the outfield wall, and the Phils lost 1-0. How did the South Philly faithful react? By littering the field with debris, of course! After an unprecedented second straight loss to start the season, a few fans felt the need to artfully construct a street installation of sorts to symbolize their protestations for Phillies management. We're sure that will get the Teflonics' attention, and rather than further reducing promotions aimed at college-aged fans (such as last night's Dollar Dog Night), they'll probably sign a previously unknown top-tier free agent third basemen and tonight's power outage will be nothing more than a laughable memory come playoff time.
At least a Mets fan got tossed out with the trash.*/
