Galvis is in 6th in the NL in BA - he's adopted a 'put the ball in play' style like Pete Rose used to do
The unpredictability continues with the Phillies, sometimes they play good, sometimes they play bad. For the past several years it's been a lot more bad than good.
The St. Louis Cardinals thumped the Phils 5-2 last night, and Aaron Harang's streak of good starts was abruptly stopped as he got tagged for 5 ER and gave up 9 H in 6.0 IP last night.
The younger Phillies players are raising their BA nicely, Freddie Galvis is in the top 10 in player BA so far. Two Phillies veterans are having a terrible April that threatens to continue into May. Chase Utley is batting .114 and Ryan Howard .191 and despite Howard hitting a few HR in the past few games, he hasn't been the solid player that the Phillies need him to be.
The Phils have sunk to the bottom of the NL East with the 8-14 record that they have.
An afternoon game today in St. Louis, at 1:45 PM Philly time hopes that they can salvage at least a win and get out of St. Louis with their pride.
