Are we going to focus on how terrible the Phillies giving up a 6-1 lead, including a three-run home run in the 9th inning, to the best team in Major League Baseball is?
No. No, we’re not. Not today.
Instead, we’re going to focus on an improbable Phillies win, which was brought to us by Bryce Harper’s first walk-off hit for the club. And we’re going to focus on just how good those TV and radio calls were.
First up, Tom McCarthy on NBC Sports Philadelphia may have had one of his best calls as the Phils’ lead man.

And Scott Franzke once again delivered an incredible call on SportsRadio 94 WIP with partner Larry Andersen.

It actually wound up being a good night. Sure, it’s only one game. If the season’s tide doesn’t start changing after that, I’m not sure it will.
But at least we’ll have that.
