Even the Robot Sucks for the Phillies

<a href="" target="_new" title="Robot throws first pitch">Video: Robot throws first pitch</a>

Throwing out the first pitch at the Brewers game against the Phillies the other day.... a robot. "PhillieBot" threw out the first pitch and was of course booed for doing so, as this is the same city has that boo'ed Santa Claus. It wasn't a very good throw by the robot either, so it's safe to assume that the inevitable robot attack on all humans is still a few years off.

That being said, the Phillies did avoid the sweep today by knocking off the Brewers 4-3, so maybe they aren't as bad as the Brewers have been making them out to be that last few days. Chris Narveson took a no-hitter into the fifth inning before Philadelphia got to him, specifically in the form of a three run shot by Placido Polanco. The Brewers allowed another run from there and couldn't muster up any of their own, and the sweep in Philly that was so close to happening never came to fruition. Still, taking two from a team of their stature after a tough weekend in Washington in a positive sign. With that, the Brewers will return home on Friday for three-game sets against the Astros and the Reds.
