Baseball is a beautiful sport for many reasons.
One of them is that no matter what happens in a game, baseball gives players the opportunity to start over the very next day.
Each day, a new story is written, one in which the game played the day before just doesn’t matter anymore.
It gives you the opportunity to save face and get revenge.
The Phillies were no-hit by the Houston Astros in Game 4 of the World Series on Wednesday night.
Two teams have been no-hit in the World Series, and now the Phillies are one of them.
However, Thomson is trying to convince his players that yesterday doesn’t matter anymore.
“Phillies manager Rob Thomson went into the clubhouse after Phils were no hit last night and reminded them they were no hit by the Mets in April and came back and won the next day. ‘They’ve got a short memory,’” NBC Sports Philadelphia’s John Clark tweeted.

Thomson Needs His Players To Show A Short Memory
In the World Series, it’s important to have a short memory.
The Astros showed it: after being blanked 7-0 on Tuesday while watching the Phillies hit five home runs, they returned the favor last night.
A short memory is the mark of a good team.
Only those with the required mental strength to overcome adversity will be standing when it all ends.
Who will be the last team standing?
