Not sure what else can be said about the Phillies’ offense at this point.
They’ve scored nine runs in 10 games, which is why they’ve fallen from first place in the National League East for the first time since May 1. The Phillies had a season-high five-game lead in the NL East following a 12-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on May 17. They had the second-best offense in baseball at the time, averaging 5.73 runs per game. Only the New York Yankees (5.76) had averaged more.
But entering tonight’s game against the Braves, the Phillies rank 12th in baseball, averaging 4.69 runs per game.
Quite a fall.
The Phillies have gone 63 innings without a home run. It’s their longest home run drought since a 73-inning streak in 1999.
Who breaks the streak?
