Why the Phillies Should Listen to My Mother

30 Jun

When the Phillies score a lot of runs in one game my Mother always says, “Save some for tomorrow.” 

Well I’m sure she said that many times during the 16-1 beatdown Friday night.  And I only wish the Phils had listened because they could have used a couple of those rune last night as they lost to the Dodgers 4-3 on a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth.

So much for momentum. 

Chase Utley was the only Phillie who “saved some.”  He hit two home runs last night accounting for 2/3 of the Phillies total run production.

They wasted another strong performance by Cliff Lee who, after giving up 2 hits, including a 3-run homer in the first, shut the Dodgers down giving up only 2 more hits and striking out 10 in seven innings.

The Phils also proved something I’ve known for a long time.

My mother is always right.
