The Philadelphia Phillies dropped Tuesday night’s game to the Baltimore Orioles 19-3, and the score alone wasn’t even the weirdest part. The Phillies, as you can imagine, had a tough night pitching. Starter Jerome Williams didn’t even make it out of the first inning after giving up four hits and six earned runs. Relief pitcher Dustin McGowan gave up another six earned runs with five home runs. In fact, the best pitcher for the Phillies was left fielder Jeff Francoeur, who struck out a guy looking.
As if that wasn’t enough, there appeared to be some miscommunication between the Phillies’ dugout and bullpen—as in there was no communication.
Calcaterra wasn’t joking or exaggerating or making some play on words. Honest to God, the phone was off the hook.
And, now, a wiretapping joke about the St. Louis Cardinals goes here.
