The anatomy of a losing streak

Gabe Kapler loses his temper yesterday and gets tossed out of the game for the first time ever


When things don't go right in baseball, it can seem like nothing is going right. That is the state of the Phillies right now. In the mire of a 6-game losing streak, two to the Miami Marlins at home most recently. You wonder what will happen to make this all change.

When pitching doesn't do well, the bats can't overcome what happens, and when the bats go silent it's not easy to overcome that. So what is wrong with this Phillies team?

Back to back with Bryce Harper yesterday

Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins went back-to-back yesterday for the first time of the season. Phillies fans have been waiting to see this, and a couple months into the season plus, it finally happened yesterday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phils have lost 6 games in a row. It's been hard to take for fans that have expected a lot more than the have been doing lately. What is the cause for all of this?

Let's look at some positives: JT Realmuto as of yesterday is the first Phillies catcher with 23 caught stealings before July since 2012 when Carlos Ruiz had 24. Scott Kingery brought his .650 slugging percentage into yesterday's game, he sits 6th on the top 10 just behind Christian Yelich who leads the MLB, then Bellinger, Blackmon, Trout, and Gallo. That's what kind of good hitting Kingery has been doing lately.

The Phillies can just get back on the field today and get a much needed win and build from there. A loss will only deepen the problem with this team. We need a win, and we need it bad.

The Phillies June Swoon so far:
