PHILLIES MACKANIN: ‘GOT TO KEEP LOSING SNOWBALL FROM ROLLING’

By Jack Ryan

The Phillies have lost seven of eight games to the Tigers, Cubs and Nationals.

Last night brought the latest defeat, a 5-1 loss to the National League East-leading Nats at Citizens Bank Park. The Nats have won the first two games of the series and go for the sweep on Wednesday night.

While losing seven of their last eight, the Phillies have seen their feel-good story wiped away. Their record has gone from 25-19 to 26-26 and their deficit in the NL East from two games to 5½.

“We had a good month and a half,” manager Pete Mackanin said. “When things are going good, they snowball. When things are going bad, they snowball. We’ve got to keep that snowball from rolling. We’ve got to get out of it.”
