Milwaukee Bat Boy is now a Phillies fan after the Fightins’ swept the Brewers
The Philadelphia Phillies have won seven straight games and return home tonight to Citizens Bank Park to open up a weekend series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Yesterday, they completed the sweep of the National League Central leading Milwaukee Brewers, a team that has now lost six straight games. The entire NL Central is an absolute shambles, losing a collective 14 games in a row.
After the Phillies took the 3-1 lead on Thursday thanks to a check swing double by Didi Gregorius, the bats awakened yet again as Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, and Odubel Herrera each hit a home run extending the lead and putting the game out of reach at 8-2.
After Herrera’s blast he was greeted in the dugout by Phillies players, but they weren’t the only ones happy to put the final nail in the coffin and bust out the brooms for the sweep of the Brewers.

It’s crystal clear that Milwaukee’s bat boy completely switched sides and is now a Phillies fan. Welcome to Philadelphia, kid. Get him on the plane back to Philly and out of Milwaukee.
He can throw out the first pitch tonight and befriend the Praying Phillies kid that Bryson Stott will be hanging out with this weekend at Citizens Bank Park. The baseball youth thrive in Philadelphia. Nick Castellano’s son is at every home game patrolling the stands and making sure everyone is having a great time too. This kid will fit right in.
I’m not sure if he realizes the pain and suffering that Phillies fans have endured over the last decade but none of that matters right now given the win streak and the fact that no team in the NL Central can win a baseball game. He’s now one of us and we will battle the trials and tribulations of being a Philadelphia sports fan together.
Side Note: This reminded me of when Drake clung onto Joel Embiid after he sucked the souls out of Toronto and Raptors fans. The big difference however, is that this kid is actually cool and Drake is a loser.
The Fightins’ are now 7-3 over their last 10 games and sit just one game below the .500 mark at 28-29. They will be home for the next six games playing the D-Backs and Nationals. The time to make a move in the National League East starts now.
