We’re talking rare events in terms of baseball, of course. The Phillies turned an around-the-horn triple play today in San Diego, Franco to Hernandez to Joseph. The last time they executed a 5-4-3 double play dates back to 2007, Nunez to Utley to Helms.
I didn’t watch the game online, but have to believe that none of the walks were intentional since Hoskins was followed in the lineup by his Bash Brother Dylan Cozens, who didn’t draw any walks. Today’s 14-0 drubbing of the Altoona Curve brings the Fightin Phils’ record to 76-38, the best record in all of baseball. Okay, that does it — we’re putting a Fightin Phils’ game on this year’s bucket list.
