Three years ago this month, the Phils came to Milwaukee following a series in Denver that included a game snowed out, accusations of using binoculars to steal signs, and an injury to a catcher for the second time in the month.
Carlos Ruiz was injured in Game 1 of a doubleheader at Coors Field; when the Phils arrived to Miller Park the next day, Ruiz wasn't placed on the DL and the catching duties were handed down to Paul Hoover and Paul Hoover alone for the weekend. Hoover went 5-for-10 with 3 walks and 6 runs scored in the series as the Phillies swept the Brewers.
Flash forward three years and the Phils are once again missing their top two catchers. Erik Kratz joined Ruiz on the DL on Sunday morning with a left leg injury.
Kratz injured his leg while running out a groundout to short on the first play of the ninth inning.
