The Phillies closed out their series with the Giants on Sunday afternoon before 24 of the 25 players head home until Friday for the All-Star Break. Only Jonathan Papelbon will represent the Phillies during the All-Star Game, as the team continues its historically bad play.
Chad Billingsley would pick up the loss on Sunday, as the Phillies fell to the Giants 4-2 to be swept out of San Francisco and pick up their 26th loss in their last 33 games.
Brandon Crawford would then break a scoreless tie with an RBI single, and Andrew Susac would follow that with a three-run home run to put the Giants ahead 4-0.
The Phillies would get a run back in the seventh on an RBI single by Ryan Howard and again in the ninth on another single by Howard, but would be unable to get any closer in a 4-2 loss.
The loss dropped the Phillies to 29-62 on the season, giving them 10 more losses than the next worst team in baseball, the Brewers. The 62 losses also represent the most in Phillies franchise history before the All-Star Break.
Reminder, this is the same Phillies organization that lost just 60 games all season four years ago in 2011.
For now, enjoy your short break from watching this historic train wreck. The Phillies will return from the break on Friday in a home series against the Marlins.
