Notes From Phillies’ 8-3 Loss To Los AngelesBREAKING NEWS, News, Phillies Friday, June 8th, 2012
- Very little is going right for this baseball team right now. Anytime you can spot Cole Hamels an early three-run lead, you’d figure the team has an excellent chance to come away with a victory.
- Hamels didn’t get enough support from his defense, but his stuff was far from electric, allowing four runs in six innings.
- Hamels has cooled off in his last few starts. He’s lost two straight games, and his ERA has jumped from 2.17 to 2.93.
- The offense went ice cold after scoring three runs in the third inning. They were just 1-12 with runners in scoring position on the day, and left 23 men on base.
- Outfielder Juan Pierre and first baseman John Mayberry went a combined 0-10 and left five runners each on base.
- Mike Fontenot got the start at second for the injured Freddy Galvis. He had a successful day at the plate, going 3-4, but committed a costly error in the field.
- Chad Qualls put the game out of reach in the ninth inning. The veteran was asked to keep the game at a one-run deficit, and responded by allowing four runs on five hits, and recording just one out before being removed from the game.
