Notes From Phillies’ 12-5 Win Over CincinnatiBREAKING NEWS, News, Phillies Tuesday, August 21st, 2012
- It was time for a throwback game in which the Phillies’ offense simply outhit the opposition. Starter Roy Halladay wasn’t great tonight, but he didn’t need to be.
- Halladay had a rough game, allowing five runs on 10 hits in seven innings. The 35-year old pitched out of jams throughout the night, and just wasn’t on top of his game.
- John Mayberry Jr. was one of several big offensive contributors tonight, going 3-5 and driving in three runs. He hit his eleventh home run of the season in the sixth inning.
- Ryan Howard and Erik Kratz also homered in the rout, with solo shots in the third and fourth innings.
- Chase Utley also joined in the hit parade with a double and two RBIs.
- Juan Pierre finished with a three-hit game, and hit his eighth double of the year. He also stole two bases.
- Placido Polanco made his return to the lineup, and went 2-4 with a walk.
- Domonic Brown went 1-4 with a two-run double, and also made a nice play on an outfield assist to throw a man out at home.
- B.J. Rosenberg, Antonio Bastardo, and Josh Lindblom combined to pitch the final two innings.
- It was the first time Bastardo had pitched in 12 games. He allowed a hit, but also struck out two.
- The Phillies went a tidy 6-15 with runners in scoring position.
- Every pitcher that appeared in the game for the Reds surrendered at least one earned run, and the Phils were held scoreless in only the second inning.
