The Phillies clawed their way back from a 5-0 deficit last night thanks to Cody Asche’s game-tying grand slam (I’m sure most of you missed it– I did). In the 10th, the Blue Jays took at 6-5 lead on a sacrifice fly hit to Revere, who would’ve had a reasonable chance of getting Melky Cabrera out at the plate if not for this throw:
Annnnnnd safe. Phillies lose, 6-5.
Side note: What’s with the announcers in suits this season?
