Cover picture for the articleJoe Girardi did not sound as dejected as he could have been following Saturday night’s 12-inning loss to the Braves at Truist Park. The Phillies blew a two-run lead in the ninth, a one-run lead in the 11th and a three-run lead in the 12th. They blew a shot at a six-game winning streak, too. Asked afterward if he worried that a loss like that could kill their momentum, Girardi said no. He believed “momentum is only as good as your starting pitcher the next day.” Girardi liked the Phillies’ chances in Sunday night’s series finale because they had Aaron Nola on the mound.
