Snake Bytes: 11/2 - Series Tipped in Philies’ Favor?

Coors Field, Amirite?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a classic example of "no lead is secure in Coors Field".

Snake Bytes: 9/7 - Defeat Snatched From Victory (Again)

While it wasn’t his best outing, Merrill Kelly still deserved much better than to watch from the bench as Ian Kennedy let another Arizona victory slip away.
