Another Why Even Bother Post-Vacation Massive Catch-Up, Part 8 of 8
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies were embarrassed by the Rockies in an 11-0 beat down.
What It Means: The 2014 Phillies are not a very good team.
What Happened: Manager Ryne Sandberg and A.J. Burnett were both ejected in the second inning, after Burnett questioned the location of a few pitches. Burnett had already allowed five runs in his 1 2/3 innings of work. Phillippe Aumont entered the ballgame and allowed six more runs in his two innings of work to increase his ERA to an impressive 19.06.
Featured Card: With Sandberg's second ejection of the season, bench coach Larry Bowa got to manage the club once again. Every time the television camera caught Bowa in the dugout, he definitely was not smiling.
