Houston, You Are the Problem; Phils Blanked, 5-0.

Final: Phillies 0, Astros 5. WP: Dallas Keuchel (2-7, 4.97 ERA) LP: Kyle Kendrick (9-11, 3.95 ERA) One could not come up with the best word to describe tonight's game.  Some that come to mind may be disappointing, or even embarrasing.  Regardless of the label, the loss tonight greatly decreased the team's chances of making the playoffs with just 16 games remaining in...
