Notes From The Phillies’ 4-2 Win Over Arizona

Ryan HowardThe Philadelphia Phillies won their second straight game on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Diamondbacks 4-2. Their record improves to 18-21.

  • Kyle Kendrick anchored the team with another solid start, tossing seven innings and allowing two runs on six hits.
  • The Phillies trailed by two runs entering the ninth inning, but were able to tie the game thanks to an RBI double from Delmon Young and an RBI single from Domonic Brown.
  • Ryan Howard hit a two-run single that gave the Phillies the lead in the 10th inning.
  • A day after recording a five-out save, Jonathan Papelbon returned to record the save in the 10th inning, his seventh of the year.
  • Charlie Manuel gave Ben Revere an opportunity to lead off, and Revere responded by going 0-3.
  • Chase Utley went 4-5 with two doubles.
  • Freddy Galvis got the start at third base, and went 3-5.
  • Jeremy Horst tossed a scoreless eighth inning.
  • Antonio Bastardo recorded the first two outs of the ninth inning, and recently called up Justin De Fratus recorded the final out and earned the win.

Final Thoughts

It was nice to see the Phillies show a little heart, with a late rally to force extra innings.

The team finished the week with a 4-3 record, but they could have easily been 6-1 or even 7-0 if not for certain failures. This team is their own worst enemy. They’ve just barely been able to get by with the poor offensive production that they’ve received every night. The Phillies are hanging around in the standings right now, but if guys like Kyle Kendrick and Jonathan Pettibone didn’t step up and provide quality pitching throughout the rotation, this team could easily have been buried already.

  1. A good Team Win yesterday with contributions by many Players and the 6th Start in a row where Kendrick has given up less than 3 Runs a Start
    (Phils probably need to lock him up Contract wise for his price tag will continue to rise if they wait to the end of the Season for since last Nuly, he’s been the most consistent Starter in the Rotation
    Phils finished 4-3 on the Road versus the Giants/Diamondbacks
    And now pkay a 2 Games vs the hot Indians and 4 vs the SL Cardinals who also are playing well.. Need a solid week here to remain close

    • Make that 2 Cleveland and 3 vs the Cincinnati Reds before playing some NL East Teams again– 5 game Homestand, not 6
