It was a disappointing loss for the Phils, who not only wasted Hamels' start, but they also missed an opportunity to jump back into a tie for first place with the Mets. It's also a bad sign for the Phillies that the one constant that they have had all year, a solid bullpen, is starting to fail them at a critical time in the year. Whether it's that they've been overworked or not, the bullpen simply hasn't been as dominating over the last few weeks.
The Phillies have three more games with the Cubs, let's hope they haven't wasted their best chance at knocking off the best team in the NL.
