Notes From The Phillies’ 6-5 Win Over Arizona

ascheThe Philadelphia Phillies won the second game of their series against the Diamondbacks on Saturday night 6-5. Their record improves to 12-12.

  • Cliff Lee turned in a subpar start, allowing five runs over six innings. Lee allowed eight hits, two walks, and struck out only two.
  • Only three of Lee’s runs were unearned, but he allowed the Phillies to fall behind quickly by giving up runs in each of the first three innings.
  • The Phillies’ offense was held scoreless until the seventh inning. Tony Gwynn got the team on the board with a pinch-hit double, and Jimmy Rollins knocked in a second run with an RBI groundout.
  • In the eighth inning, the team posted a four-run rally to take the lead. Ryan Howard reached on an error to start the inning, and Marlon Byrd took a walk. After Domonic Brown singled to load the bases, Carlos Ruiz came through with an RBI-single to cut the deficit to two. Cody Asche tied the game with a pinch-hit double to score two runs, and Ben Revere gave the team the lead with an RBI single.
  • Revere had his third straight multi-hit game, and his fifth in the last six games.
  • Carlos Ruiz finished 3-4, scoring two runs and also worked a walk.
  • Freddy Galvis continues to be an automatic out, going 0-5 and dropping his average to a wretched .033. He left eight men on base.
  • Jeff Manhip pitched a scoreless inning, and earned the win. Manship got out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning by forcing Cody Ross to line out.
  • Antonio Bastardo and Mike Adams combined to work through the eighth. Bastardo got the first two outs, and Adams was able to come in and finish the job.
  • Jonathan Papelbon earned his seventh save of the year.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies have got to feel pretty good about the way they’re playing right now.

For the second straight game, they fought back from a late game deficit that was four runs or greater, and this time they were rewarded with a win.

If they’re able to finish their 10-game road trip with another win on Sunday, and come back home with a record above .500, that’s a great success. on Facebook

  1. phillies need to send this scrub galvis to single A. dude couldn’t buy a hit if his life depended on it and his fielding last night wasn’t great either.

    get him outta here fo fucks sake he can’t help a team win

  2. Don’t look now, but Closer Papelbon is getting his location wired in and his velocity up.. With the return of Mike Adams and Bastardo back in his more comfortable 7th Inning role.. The Bullpen is looking much better..
    Still need 2 more arms, preferably a pure fireballer we and another Lefty..
    Need to win today to win series vs D-Backs and close out Trip with a 5-5 Record which is not bad considering they lost the first 3 games ..

  3. A win today and it’s 6-4 on the west swing

    • Paul as jake points out they already have 5 wins on the trip. As noted by your comments you seem more positive about the Phil’s as if you are thinking of hopping on the bandwagon while still reserving the right to say I told you so which is a typical Paul move…. I say as I’ve said for years they are trying to win and don’t have the luxury to sit on the fence the way you blog gm’s can

  4. Yes Phils won 1 of 3 vs the Rockies, which is where I messed up..
    I am glad gre Phils are off to a decent ride..
    It’s the last go around for some of these long-term Phils and It would great to see them go out with a chance to make the Post-Season
    If Phils Bullpen can remain healthy, effective and not overworked,
    which comes from good Starting Efforts,
    Then they will hang around and have a chance..

    • ‘they have a chance… isn’t that what you would want as a fan?

      • Yes, but they should have a “stronger chance”
        If they better managed their Roster,Contracts, and Player Development..
        They’ve been a .500 Tram over the last
        300 Games with more or less the same squad..
        I expect better as a Fan from them and especially with their resources that
        Most Clubs do not have..

        • they suffered a serious blow in the middle of their lineup and a horse of a pitcher pulled up lame… i guess from your computer screen those things don’t happen? you live in a fantasy land…
          hey look the Nats committed to zimmerman and he may be lame. i think desmond was just put on the DL, the braves lost 2 pitchers to tommy john…
          same squad? no halladay, add revere, asche, byrd, sign hamels, sign rollins which you thought was stupid you continue your ridiculous blogger ways!

  5. We’ll paulman it’s not for lack of trying, Phillies have the third highest payroll, have one of the top venues in all of sports, have star, likeable players,

    They are now a perennial big market tteam that must attempt to compete every year

    Your gm style is better suited for a smaller market
