Jumping For Joy: Phillies Have A Winning Streak
That's right folks. The Phillies have won three in a row (cue scene from Major League here). Mr. "We're the team to beat" (see above) nearly hit for the cycle, going 4-for-5 with a lead-off home run, triple and two singles.
And the $24 million-man, otherwise known as Adam Eaton, pitched a half-decent game for a change. He threw 6 innings, giving up four runs while walking three and striking out seven ... yes that's 7 K's.
And next the Phils get the Washington Nationals. Can you say 6 in a row?
Ok. I won't jump that far ahead. But it's good to see the bats finally coming alive as the Phils knocked the Astros' pitching staff around for 20 hits.
Could this be the turning point?
To be continued...
