Not exactly a pitch-perfect opener, to say the least. In fact, it was quite embarrassing and the ninth-inning ‘rally’ sort of lame.
Granted it’s the first outing, it wasn’t atrocious and Myers, well, sort of has a history of forgetting how to pitch. Still, I think everyone wanted to ride the high as long as possible — especially following all the fanfare of the day leading up to the first pitch.
But this wouldn’t be Philly if things had gone according to plan.
