Fundamentals have returned to the Phillies, the skill to properly execute basic baseball moves have improved

Isn’t this game so hard to figure out? The Phillies were on a 7-game losing streak, they couldn’t buy a win practically- then the NY Mets came into town and they sweep them in 4 straight games. It took a few comebacks to do it, but that’s how a team gets out of a slump and returns to the winning side.

The Phillies needed this in the worst way, if they are going to have a really positive season, they need to keep winning, and this was a very good start. It’s the Florida Marlins next up for this team down in Miami, and if they can continue to win that would be great.

Everything is better when you win, what a last 4-games the Phillies have had

It’s amazing the way a losing streak can affect fans, a lot of fans were jumping ship in the latter stages of the slump. Many took to social media and they had seen enough. Of course things change with the winning streak now, maybe many of them will be back on board with the team.

Was it improved team play, a sprinkle of luck, bamboo ?  We’ll never know that answer but this is what keeps us intrigued by this game. A combination of luck, skill and bamboo have brought some comic relief to the scene at least.
