Notes From The Phillies’ 5-2 Loss To Los Angeles

Philadelphia Phillies v Washington NationalsThe Philadelphia Phillies had their three-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday night, falling to the Dodgers 5-2. Their record drops to 10-11.

  • Cole Hamels made his 2014 debut, and allowed two runs over six innings. Hamels gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five.
  • Hamels gave up one run in the second, and another in the fifth. He allowed three doubles, two of them to Matt Kemp.
  • Ryan Howard singled home a run in the fourth inning.
  • Jimmy Rollins went 1-4 with a double and scored a run.
  • Chase Utley hit his 10th double of the year.
  • The bottom of the order gave the Phillies no production in this game. Marlon Byrd, Domonic Brown, Carlos Ruiz, and Freddy Galvis went a combined 0-13.
  • Jayson Nix hit his first home run of the season as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.
  • The bullpen has been pretty solid as of late, but they struggled to keep the game close this time, allowing a combined three runs over the final two innings.
  • Jeff Manship was only able to record two outs in the seventh inning before allowing a run on two hits. Manship gave up a double and a triple.
  • Mario Hollands got the final out of the seventh, and allowed two runs on two hits in the eighth.
  • Shawn Camp made his first appearance of the season, and allowed an inherited run to score on two hits.

Final Thoughts

New year, same old story for Cole Hamels.

He pitches pretty well, receives no run support, and takes a loss.

Before the game, the Phillies demoted B.J. Rosenberg to make room for Cole Hamels. He’s not the only guy that needs to go from the bullpen. Jeff Manship needs to follow him down to the minors as well.

Manship performed very well as a starter during Spring Training, but he hasn’t been able to bring anything to the table as a reliever. He’s allowed runs in four of his last five appearances, and during that same stretch he’s failed to make it through an entire inning three times.

I think the Phils are better off allowing Manship to pitch as a starter in the minors, letting him pitch on a regular schedule and stay stretched out in case they suffer an injury within their rotation. They can’t count on him as a reliever, and right now he’s only dead weight.

  1. Overall a good Performance by Hamels, which bodes well
    As the Season progresses, now win today and take 3 of 4 from Dodgers
    And get ready to spank the Diamondbacks over the weekend

    new year same story – funny stuff Denny, LOL

  3. Good to see Cole back on the mound. Saw only a little of the game, but thought he looked better than I expected after the injury. Starting pitching on this team may end up being the lone bright spot on this team. As Denny was saying, that bullpen just does not get it done. There is no one that puts fear into an opposing batter, but worse, there is no one that is dependable that will consistently give you strong performance.

  4. GET FRED GALVIS THE FUCK OFF THIS TEAM AND PUT HERNANDEZ ON IT.

    JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESUS IM SO SICK OF THIS LOSER AND HIS 0 FORs

    • The is enimic at the plate but he plus great defense in 3 positions

      • are you drunk?

        • I can’t stand him but a weak hitting versatile utility IF is standard operating procedure

          • hernandez can hit way better is just as versatile but not as polished defensively. ill take ceasar asap. galvis blows

            • i hate the phillies philosophy of waiting to bring guys up until they more than prove it but refuse to cut bait once theyre called up until they prove they dont even belong in the minors anymroe

            • I don’t think Hernandez can play short

              • he is being thrown around in reading between 3rd, ss, 2nd. hopefully its a sign they are gonna swap them.

                i dont wanna see galvis on this club ever again

              • Hey the anti Rollins crowd on here wanted your boy galvis as their everyday SS

              • oh god i would never watch. he is one of those guys you just dont ever want stepping into the batter box ever let alone 4 times a game
