No, yes they definitely lost. They looked like shit. Hughes is throwing heat but his movement is Farnsworthian. Offense was dead blah blah blah. All I care about is David Phelps. I’m legitimately obsessed with him. He’s reaching Ryan Gosling man-crush levels for me. 5.1 innings, 1 hit, 1 run, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts, and a saved bullpen later, David Phelps is validating my potentially premature praise of his stuff from the other day. Rubber game tomorrow night with Jerome Williams…? squaring off against Ivan Nova. Should be a good one. See you at the stadium.
P.S.- White Whale Watch: Meredith Marakovits nowhere to be seen due to today’s game being on Fox. Another day of hopelessly crouching a foot from the TV with my cell phone camera out. Coming for ya, Merri.
