Local fans react to Phillies No-Hit


The Phillies recent offensive struggles were emphasized on Sunday, when they were no hit by Josh Beckett and the Dodgers. Beckett was on his game as he walked 4, surrendered 0 hits, and striking out 6. Offense has been a constant struggle for the Phillies all season long. With a solid pitching staff, they lack the run support they deserve with the lack of offense.

“From watching the Phillies this season, I knew it was a matter of time before they got no hit,” said senior baseball phenatic, Nick Ezzi

Hammonton varsity baseball coach Gary Sarno recognizes the powerful role of a good pitcher.

“It’s been a long time since the Phillies have been no hit,” he said. “Sometimes you just have to tip your hat to a pitcher who has a great day.”

Phillies fans were bummed but still hopeful.

“We just had a bad day, hopefully the team realizes the serious lack of hitting they have, and can put together some wins,” said senior Brian Gazzara.

Senior Nick Gold, an avid supporter all of the high school sports teams and local professional teams, has not lost his faith.

“I don’t think its a big deal, it happens to everyone, even the greatest teams,” he said.

By the looks of things, there is some mixed reactions to what some regard as the Phillies nonexistent offensive performance against the Dodgers. Some say it is going to fuel the offense to hit more, while others think that the team has hit rock bottom. Fans will need to stay tuned for the rest of the season to see how the Philliies react to getting no hit.
