Blast for naught

Ryan Howard's pinch hit homer had the makings of being the hit of the season, breaking the Phils out of their funk.

But no, the bullpen failed and the Phils continued losing at home.

Heavy rain held off at Citizens Bank Park and it was a pleasant evening, considering.

The Phils hit for one inning but that was enough until the blown save.

What will turn this around? Probably for the Fightins' to drop from first and have something to play for.

That might happen by the next home stand. 

For us, it was fun. Now it's off to the shore for a couple of days. Looks like we're taking the weather along.
