Maybe he was trying to escape the Hellacious storm that just blew threw
Citizens Bank Park. Seriously, check out that pic and be thankful that you’re not there. Unless you are there and are reading this on your phone, in which case what the hell, dude?
The Phillies are up 12-3 in the eighth, so
the umps should just call it. That is, assuming any of them survive to
fill out the paperwork.
Cardinals starter Michael Wacha suffered a strained left oblique muscle during his start this afternoon against the Phillies, causing him to leave in the fourth inning.
Wacha is 8-2 with a 3.20 ERA and a 71/36 K/BB ratio in 84.1 innings across 15 starts this season with St. Louis. To the extent he has to miss some time — and obliques invariably send starters to the disabled list — potential fill-in candidates include John Gant, Daniel Poncedeleon and Dakota Hudson.
