The usual bad inning from Nola and one bad inning from the bullpen from the relatively reliable Neris and the game was just out of reach of the Phillies offense. Four runs just not enough today.
So the Phillies have
lost a series to the Marlins (2 of 3)
lost a series to the Brewers (2 of 3)
and now lost a series to the Rockies (3 or 4).
That's 3 wins in the last ten games, which is nowhere good enough to get to the post season. Unless the Phillies run off some multiple game win streaks, the season is toast. They are 72-71 and playing around .500 the rest of the way just is not good enough.
The one positive is that the schedule includes series with the Cubs (home), Mets (away). Orioles (home), Pirates (home), Braves (away), and Marlins (away). With 4 series agains losing teams and two series against the NL East teams they need to beat out, the opportunity to win the NL East is there. The Phillies just have to change the results they are getting of late and start playing winning baseball.
