The Phillies took a huge step backwards in Houston. They had a chance to make up ground in the Wild Card, but dropped three out of four to the worst team in baseball. The Phillies are back below the .500 mark and are four games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot. Tonight, the Phillies head to New York and face a team that has beaten up on them all year.
Cliff Lee has a hot hand, going 3-0 with a 1.73 ERA in his last six starts. Hopefully he can continue the hot streak, unlike Kyle Kendrick. Lee will be opposed by R.A. Dickey, who will surely be in the Cy Young conversation this year.
As painful as the Astros series was, the season is not over. The Phillies proved once that they aren’t dead, and they’ll have to do it again.
