Phils lose opener to Toronto in tough fashion

The Phils gave that one away last night. It's a shame that Jayson Werth's clutch homer was wasted with yet another blown save. Cole Hamels pitched a good game and deserved a victory. He wasn't great, but he was good enough. Chad Durbin was excellent in relief, and J.C. Romero was wild but pitched around it in tossing a scoreless inning.

Ryan Madson has been excellent but blew his second save of the year, walking in the game tying run. That shouldn't happen. That can't happen. Unfortunately, Clay Condrey was not his typical self, getting rocked for five runs in one third of an inning.

The Phillies don't just rally from deficits in games, but they rally on nights following a tough game. Last night was a tough game; let's hope for a rally.
