The Phillies manage to take a series from a team. It hasn’t been done since April 27, over a month ago, but the Phillies have finalls won a series. They were in jeopardy of tying a record from 1941 for 11 straight series losses, but they pull out another much needed win against San Francisco at home.
The Phillies now take to the road, and I’m talking with Steve Epstein from Atlanta Baseball Talk Podcast about the 2017 Braves. We’re talking about Big Sexy, no not a pin up gal, but Bartolo Colon, the 43 year old wonder pitcher. Does he have enough left in the tank to make the whole season with the Braves?
We preview the series a little, talk about Ryan Howard and his short Braves minors career and a whole lot more on this show.
Here’s how the last outing went for Bartolo Colon
Colon (2-5) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out just a single batter over five innings during Thursday’s loss to Pittsburgh.
