Notes From The Phillies’ 9-4 Win Over New York

Jonathan PettiboneThe Philadelphia Phillies won their second straight game on Saturday afternoon, defeating the Mets 9-4 in New York. Their record improves to 11-14 on the year.

  • Jonathan Pettibone made his second start of the season, and lasted five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. Pettibone didn’t go deep into the game, but he gave the team a chance to win, and pitched out of trouble on several occasions. In the bottom of the first, he allowed the first two runners to reach base, but got Daniel Murphy to ground into a double-play. Pettibone allowed two runners to reach to start the third as well, and then got New York’s Ruben Tejeda to ground into a double-play. In the fourth inning, the rookie loaded the bases, but only allowed one run to score. 
  • Pettibone received strong support from his offense, which scored nine runs on 11 hits.
  • Domonic Brown supplied a three-run home run in the fifth inning, and went 2-5 on the day.
  • John Mayberry went to back-to-back with Brown, hitting his second homer of the year.
  • Ryan Howard continued his productive play of late by driving in two more runs.
  • Michael Young had another three-hit game, his second of the week.
  • Chase Utley and Laynce Nix also drove in runs.
  • Raul Valdes, Chad Durbin, and Jeremy Horst worked the final four innings for Pettibone, giving up only one run. Valdes pitched two scoreless innings, Durbin worked the eighth, and Horst allowed a run the ninth.

Final Thoughts

A solid win for the Phillies, who have now one two straight and will have a chance to earn their first sweep of the season in the series finale.

Give Jonathan Pettibone credit for a gutty performance. In just his second career start, Pettibone faced some considerable adversity on the mound with the Mets threatening to score on him throughout his five innings. The rookie didn’t cave into the pressure, and got through his trouble spots while allowing minimal damage.

Although its been a tough week for the Phillies, if there’s been a silver lining, its that Ryan Howard’s production is finally starting to pick up. He’s hit two homers and driven in eight runs this week, in the previous 21 games he had just one home run and six RBIs. The Phillies won’t get far unless they can get good production out of their cleanup hitter.

  1. Meanwhile Y. Bettancourt is batting .280 with 4 HR’s and 18 RBI’s for the Milwaukee Brewekrs playing multiple positions.. Phils should have kept him on final marketer over ‘Fransden or that Option-5 OF who is a wasted Roster Spot
