Wednesday 8/27: Phillies blow 8th inning lead to Mets and lose a winnable game against Johan Santana.
Thursday 8/28: Phillies blow a 4-1 lead in the 8th inning at Wrigley Field wasting another fine effort from Cole Hamels, falling 6-4.
Friday 8/29: Phillies gradually lose a 2-0 lead, and fail to muster any additional runs and fall again to the Cubs, 3-2.
All this on the heels of an improbable win after trailing the Mets 7-0 Tuesday night. You know, the game that was supposed to be so crushing for New York, and a springboard for the rest of the Phillies' season.
Current standings show the Mets are 2 games up on the Phightins this morning after scoring 4 in the 9th to beat Florida last night.
Meanwhile, the Phillies have two more at Wrigley this weekend.
Mommy, make it stop.
