The Philadelphia Phillies enjoyed the day off on Monday after beating the Padres in 3 of the 4 games in San Diego. Bryce Harper was hit by a pitch on Saturday, and the X-Rays quickly confirmed a fracture. Now the Phillies return to Philadelphia where they await the Braves, fresh off a series loss vs the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Sunday night was a brutal loss for the Braves as they had led 2-0 the entire way. The irony that coursed through the stadium was unreal. Kenley Jansen, long time closer for the Dodgers, came into the game and gave up 3 hits and 2 earned runs to tie the game. The blown save would eventually lead to a 5-3 win for the Dodgers.
This series has potential for some movement in the division. The Phillies are 3 games behind the Braves in the NL East, as both look to chase down the New York Mets for first place.
The Phillies will be without Bryce Harper for some time, so they must figure out a way to continue the level of baseball they have been playing since the Girardi firing.
