NLCS Game Six: Phillies Squander Opportunity

After Ryan Howard struck out with two men on and nobody out, Jeremy Affeldt went to work against Jayson Werth, an eight pitch at-bat that ended in a fly ball out. With two guys on base that haven’t moved, Shane Victorino squibbed a ball to first base for an easy out.

Stranding guys on is not a recipe for success. It would’ve been really nice to bounce back with the lead there. At least Sanchez is out of the game, although that might help the Giants.
