Four In a Row
No, I’m not kidding.
The Phillies seem pleased that they finally have started to play better baseball after a horrendous start, but they emphasized after tonight’s 6-3 victory over the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park that they’re not in the clear yet.
“It’s just four games,” Jimmy Rollins said.
“I’ve played this game too long and you can’t get too excited about a game, a couple of games or a series,” Jamie Moyer said. “You enjoy it. But as we all know as players, it’s a long season. To me, the poor start is over and we’re going to continue to play baseball and good things are going to happen. Do we go into another rut? Possibly. Do we run off a bunch of wins? Possibly.”
They’re 8 and 11, which means the hype machine is waiting in the wings.
