(Sean Burnett torched another one on Monday. Screen grab via TV/MASN.)
"It's hard to walk away from this one. Livo threw another good game, and our offense put up four on Halladay, which isn't going to happen too much. It's a game you have to win, and we had it won if I could execute and get the lefties out that I'm supposed to."

Phillies 5, Nationals 4: They had Roy on the ropes all day and still have nothing to show for it. Ho hum, just another 1-run loss. Expect it?
10 hits, 4 runs off Halladay sure sounds good, but there aren't any silver linings on this day.
First and third with no outs in the 7th, and nothing to show for it but a baserunning blunder by Cora. Later, a fitting end via Werth K.
Ho hum, Teddy loses another one. Werth can't be happy.
Note to Mike Rizzo: It might be time to put Matt Stairs out of his misery. 3-34 for the pinch hitting specialist, good for .088.
