Not even Ben Revere homer can shake up this lifeless squad

Prepare for hell to freeze over.

Ben Revere hit a home run last night - his first as a major leaguer.

And it still didn't spark the lifeless Phillies to a win. Instead, Cole Hamels pitched well into the seventh, when the wheels came off. In the meantime, his teammates looked dead in the water as they fell to the Rockies, 6-2, after a rain delay that lasted about an hour and a half.

Once play resumed, the Phillies still looked all wet.

Dennis Deitch has all the details, and a great look at just how rare that shot off the bat of the Phils' leadoff man was.

It only took Revere 1,566 plate appearances to go yard. It just might take longer for the Phils to climb back into contention.
