With the bases loaded and two outs in the top of the ninth inning in a tie game against the Baltimore Orioles, the Philadelphia Phillies completely fell apart at the seams.
Engineering the absolute worst mistake of the season so far, a routine infield fly turned into two runs for the Orioles as nobody had a clue what to do. Check out this ghastly faux pas, as three different players refused to claim this pop fly.

Phillies fans on Twitter were quite a heated lot.
My comprehensive plan to fix the Phillies:— tim (@urbane_turtle) August 12, 2020
Fire everyone except Harper and Realmuto
That’s it that’s the strategy
The @Phillies are so fortunate no fans are at the stadium… this is horrendous— Alan McG (@AlanMcG12) August 12, 2020
