Reading Fightin Phils vs Harrisburg Senators – August 27, 2017

On Sunday, I went to Reading to see the Fightin Phils (still not a fan of that name) take on the Harrisburg Senators.  Reading is always a great place for a ballgame.  I think the team does a good job in providing the fan experience.

The game was exciting as Reading and Harrisburg decided that they would each score in the same innings.  I was concerned at first because it was 1-1 after one inning, then 3-3 after two innings, but after the Senators took a one-run lead in the top of the 8th, Christian Marrero broke the cycle and hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th for a 7-4 Reading win.  I was able to see Victor Robles play for the second time this season.  He’s the Nationals top prospect and definitely looked good again going 2-4 with a two-run double out of the leadoff position.  I will say that I’m not a fan of his Andruw Jones impression when catching the ball where he flicks his glove down as he catches it.  I mention Jones because he had the infamous mistake where he did that and dropped the ball.  I hope he starts catching the ball with two hands when the situation allows.
