The Phillies failed to sweep the Pirates over the weekend by dropping Sunday’s game by a score of 5-1. The lowly Pirates were buoyed by a masterful complete game performance by Paul Maholm. Pat Burrell continued his torrid April with a double and the Phillies only run scored. Taking a step back, we will see that despite the loss the Phillies are positioned to at least go .500 in April – something we can all take heart in.
Since the Phils have off on Monday and Tim is taking a much needed respite to deal with his tragic fire, I will take this opportunity to introduce a new page on Phillies Nation – Phillies Bars! In our never-ending quest to unite Phillies fans around the globe, we have compiled a list of locations where Phillies fans congregate, no matter where you are. At the present time, we have nine cities covered, but we’re looking for your feedback to help fill out the map. Please leave a comment or send us an email with your suggestions.
