The Phillies manufactured a run in the bottom of the eighth inning to squeak by the Washington Nationals, 4-3, at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday night. After breezing through the first 6 innings, Cole Hamels was hit hard in the seventh and eighth innings as he let a 3-0 lead get away. Hamels cruised through the first six innings, allowing three hits and no runs over that span. He took a 3-0 lead into the seventh and things began to fall apart when he gave up four hits, a walk, and two runs as the Nationals cut the Phillies' lead to 3-2. Hamels' strong start totally unraveled when he allowed a game-tying leadoff homer (on his 84th pitch. The Phillies took a 3-0 lead on a two-run homer by Freddy Galvis in the 5th, and solo jack by Darin Ruf in the 6th. Galvis' homer was preceded by a triple by Grady Sizemore. Ben Revere scored the go-ahead run in the eighth. GET THE FULL STORY
Twenty years ago, we screamed that there was no business plan that defined the Phillies organization. Finally we saw this as Pat Gillick came to Philadelphia. Gillick brought with him a keen baseball intellect, and a sound business plan. Six years removed from the Gillick revival, the Phillies are once again, an organization with no real business plan. If today's brain-thrust had the ability to infuse life into this organization, they would have by now. Can Ruben Amaro devise, implement, and stick to that business plan like Sir Patrick did?
