The Phillies’ art of ‘cleaning up’ will be put to the test with a must-see Game 6 against the Astros | Sports

PHILADELPHIA — The Phillies like to use the phrase “flush.” After a tough loss — like their 3-2 loss to the Astros in Game 5 of the World Series on Thursday — that’s often what they say they’ll do, and more often than not, they actually do. At the start of the season, they struggled with that. They chained three, four, five defeats at a time. As of May 31, they were 21-29 with 12.5 return games in the National League East.

Jean Segura was placed on the injured list the next day with a fractured right index finger. In retrospect, Kyle Gibson called it “low bottom”.
