Philadelphia Phillies Bust Out Baseball Voodoo
The Philadelphia Phillies bats have been in slump that has lasted a month now and the best way to break out of a slump is to bring on the baseball voodoo. The Phillies about a month ago where the best hitting team in the National League and now sit 12th, hitting just .255 as a team plus have dropped to 12th in the league in runs scored. Dropping them to third in the National League East.
Something needed to be done and second baseman Chase Utley found the solution, he must talk to the Baseball Gods and out came some baseball voodoo. He arranged several bats, an apple, an orange, a banana, a can of Red Bull, a tin of chewing tobacco, batting gloves and a few vitamins in a pattern next to his locker and made a sacrifice to the Baseball Gods.
The Phillies then went on to explode for six runs off New York Yankees A.J. Burnett Wednesday night, including a three-run triple by Shane Vicotorino and back-to-back homers by Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth.
Baseball Gods are always watching.
