The Phillies' bats awoke last night. The pitchers went to sleep.
Roy Oswalt lasted three innings in the Phils' 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks, their second straight defeat in the desert to a team that began the series with a losing record.
The Phils managed twelve hits but the starter and most of the relief corps couldn't solve the Dbacks.
Going into the game, the Phils had hit a combined .200 for their last fourteen games. TWO HUNDRED, as in, the Mendoza Line. If that futility wasn't cause enough for concern, two of the Four Aces lost the last two nights.
Folks, it isn't too soon to worry. Indeed, I for one started in January.
