Philadelphia: It’s anyone’s game


The GIST: The Phillies earned another win last night while the Flyers suffered another embarrassing loss. Ya win some, ya lose some.

⚾️Phillies: After losing the first two games of their weekend series, the Phillies beat the Braves 7–6 in their final matchup last night. The teams swapped home runs all night, until Philly third baseman Alex Bohm scored in the ninth inning after a controversial call dubbed him as safe. Drama. 

  • Homers from Rhys Hoskins, Bryce Harper and Didi Gregorious brought in six of the Phils’ seven runs. Overrated, who? 

🏒Flyers: The Flyers collapsed against the Buffalo Sabres — the worst team in the league — yesterday, blowing a two-goal lead in the second period and ultimately losing 5–3

  • This was a crucial game for the Flyers, who were teetering on the edge of making the playoffs. But after this meltdown, it’s not looking hopeful for Gritty’s guys. Maybe it’s time to consider a new sport.

Yesterday’s loss also dashed any hope of general manager Chuck Fletcher acquiring additional talent to help the Flyers out this year. So expect Fletcher’s moves, if any, to be setting up the Flyers for future seasons.
