PHILS KAPLER FINALLY GROWS THE BALLS TO BENCH HERNANDEZ!

By Sam Bush

Phillies manager Gabe Kapler finally developed some balls and benched second baseman Cesar Hernandez for last night’s series opener against the Pirates “in response to” Hernandez’s lack of hustle in Sunday’s loss to Miami at Marlins Park.

Hernandez ripped a ball off the right-field wall with two outs in the sixth inning of a scoreless game, but settled for a single after watching the ball sail toward the wall instead of running hard out of the batter’s box.

“It’s in response to yesterday,” said Kapler. “I was taking a look at the calendar and I recognize how important every game is for the rest of the season, and the little things really matter right now. I felt that it was appropriate to show that that’s really meaningful to all of us as a group, in the clubhouse.”
