OK so we lost to Philly 8-4. It’s not about one game though as we enter a potentially brutal stretch with no Pirates or Padres on the schedule. Instead its Phillies and Cardinals, the Nats and then the AL East - ugh.
Can we go toe to toe with the big dogs? Do we belong in the postseason discussion? We should have a much better gauge of this team 2 weeks from now.
What a weird injury to Justin Turner. I woulda swore it was a hamstring instead of an ankle. It looked like he pulled up lame just before hitting the bag awkwardly.
I thought he tore the hammy, maybe clean off the bone but somehow it was the ankle - weird.
Meanwhile everything went wrong on that play as the Phils zipped the ball around the IF and prevented the runner from coming home until Turner got hung up between 1st and 2nd unfortunately Turner didn’t last long enough for the runner to cross the plate. 3rd out - no run - and a DL stint for Turner - a complete disaster.
