Notes From The Phillies’ 7-3 Win Over New York

browntThe Philadelphia Phillies won their second straight game on Tuesday night, taking down the New York Mets 7-3 in Philadelphia. Their record now stands at 4-5 on the season.

  • Kyle Kendrick bounced back from a rough outing against the Royals to deliver a quality start against New York, pitching six innings and allowing just two runs on eight hits. His ERA dropped to 5.40.
  • The offense was once again able to take advantage of mediocre starting pitching from the Mets, tagging Jeremy Hefner for five runs in the first inning alone.
  • Chase Utley, Domonic Brown, and Laynce Nix all homered in the win. Utley hit a two-run shot in the first inning, Brown supplied a three-run bomb several batters later, and Nix added his first homer of the year in the sixth.
  • The lineup as a whole managed 10 hits on the night. Ryan Howard didn’t drive in any runs, but still went 2-4 on the night to raise his average to .200. Michael Young also had another solid night at the plate, going 2-3 with a walk.
  • The bullpen was solid closing out the game for Kendrick, allowing just one run over the final three innings. Antonio Bastardo pitched a scoreless seventh inning, and has yet to allow a run this year. Mike Adams worked the eighth inning, and gave up a run on a solo homer, but also managed to strikeout the side. Jonathan Papelbon made just his third appearance of the year, and tossed a scoreless ninth inning.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies are doing exactly what they’re supposed to do right now: win against a bad team.

The series against the Mets got off to a rough start, but the team was able to bounce back and take the final two games of the series behind a couple of solid starts from Cliff Lee and Kyle Kendrick, and a combined 15 runs produced from the lineup.

The team must now carry this momentum over into their upcoming weekend series with the lowly Miami Marlins. Ideally the Phillies will want to sweep the series against one of baseball’s worst, but as long as they take at least two of the three games, it will be a successful weekend. on Facebook
