Phillies On Pace to Score 81 Runs

Game 1: 1 run (L, 4-1)

Game 2: 0 runs (L, 4-0)

One run in two games prorates to… 81 runs over 162 games. Agh! Time to panic!

Well, not really. If you’re in panic mode, here are some therapeutic guides to relieving that early-season tension:

Don’t fret. Shane Victorino will eventually get a hit. Ryan Howard will hit a home run. Chase Utley will make an outstanding defensive play. Phillies starters will stop allowing one home run in the first inning. It will get better, I promise — stick around.
