This team continues to give the Philadelphia fans every penny worth of action. So Friday we lose the series opener against the Braves in an ugly 8-2 game. This set the stage for two of the better comebacks in recent memory. Saturday, Phillies ace Cole Hamels took the mound and had an early 3-0 lead and looked to be in the drivers seat. Cole then let up a 9 run, 5th inning to give the Braves what seemed to be an insurmountable 9-3 lead.
Well the Phillies obviously don’t know the meaning of the word quit, because that, they did not. They stormed back, torching the Braves for 7 runs in the next inning to take back the lead and cruise home to victory.
So Sunday, the Phils could not get their bats going early and found themselves down 5-0 after the top half of the 4th. Only to come out guns ablazin’ in the bottom half of the inning to rally and tie the game at 5. The Phils would score again in the 5th, 6th, and 7th innings to take another come from behind victory from the Braves and 2 out of 3 for the series.
