Notes From The Phillies’ 4-1 Win Over Miami

pettibone2The Philadelphia Phillies won their second straight game on Friday night, taking down the Miami Marlins 4-1. Their record improves to 14-16 on the season.

  • Another strong start for rookie Jonathan Pettibone. Pettibone enjoyed his best outing yet, tossing 6.1 innings and allowing just one run on five hits. The rookie’s lone blemish was a solo home run given up to Donovan Solano in the fourth inning.
  • The Phillies offense scored four runs, three of which came on solo home runs from Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and Domonic Brown. The lineup has struggled against Ricky Nolasco in the past, but tonight they were able to tag him for a couple of runs.
  • Howard also hit his ninth double of the year.
  • Ben Revere got the start in centerfield tonight, and picked up an RBI single.
  • Delmon Young went 1-3, and hit his first double of the season.
  • Antonio Bastardo took over for Pettibone in the seventh. The lefty allowed two walks, but was able to get through the inning without allowing any runs to score.
  • Mike Adams gave up a hit and a walk, but made it through the eighth inning to earn his third hold of the year.
  • Jonathan Papelbon earned his fifth save of the season.

Final Thoughts

It’s nice to see Jonathan Pettibone continue to pitch well as the team’s fifth starter.

The Phillies have won all three of his starts, and Pettibone himself has earned a winning decision twice. Although his opponents haven’t been the most imposing lineups that the National League has to offer (Pittsburgh, New York, Miami), he’s pitching very well right now and he’s earning his keep.

The Phillies offense have supported their fourth and fifth starters fairly well throughout the season. They need to start consistently doing the same for the pitchers at the top of their rotation. Cole Hamels goes for his second win of the season tomorrow in the third game of the series. on Facebook

  1. Ryan Howard is heating up. He looks smarter at the plate, more selective. Michael Young is hitting for a great average, but too many double plays and no power so far. Dom Brown is swinging a nice bat right now. They need to take these next 2 against the Marlins, next week is going to be a tough west coast swing against the Giants and Diamondbacks

    • E, don’t get all pumped up about Howards back-to-back homer games! It’s the Marlins. Dom Brown, is at best mediocre. Our entire OF, on the 40-man roster, along with our inept GM, needs to be sunk to the deepest depths, of the Marianas Trench!

  2. Here’s to hoping this kid is the real deal! I like the kid. Mound presence. Good stuff. Good command. Doesn’t seem to get flustered. I know we played a Beer league team, but so far, so good! To all, is it possible, we can get Stanton, without decimating the rest of the farm, that we do have left? We have to fire Booben & let Proefrock take over. He built those good nucleus’s in TB, with NO payroll support. Minus Joseph, Biddle, & Ashe, I’d trade anybody. Get Stanton, & trade Lee, Papelstiff, Rollins, both Youngs, Utley, Ruiz, & if any takers, Howard also, to replenish our system, & future nucleus. BUT, Booben MUST GO 1st, because I have 0% faith, nor trust in him, to rebuild this organization, that he destroyed! I want a good, young, fun & exciting team again, like 07-10. These last 3 years, have been disheartening, embarrassing, boring & a major let down. Booben MUST GO! NOW!!!!

  3. Denny writes Ryan Howard hit his 9th double of the year but neglected to inform that Fat Howard tried to make it his first triple and was predictable thrown out at 3rd. Everyone in the dugout was laughing at him —
    Ruiz stole 2nd base on a lazy pitcher in the 3rd with 2 outs and scored on the next pitch from a single by Revere— good heads up play.
