OK, we admit to being spoiled. Can we really be faulted after the last two weeks?
Still, the notion of losing to the Nationals and ancient Livan Hernandez THE HITTER when you have a beautiful night in front of the usual sell-out crowd and Cole Hamels on the mound is hard to imagine let alone swallow.
But there it is, a 4-2 loss in which the Phils did little.
Hamels wasn't sharp. Hernandez was throwing his usual slop, some pitches nearly rolling back to him for lack of forward momentum.
Oh well, they can't and won't win 'em all.
