Notes From The Phillies’ 3-2 Win Over New York

Dominic BrownThe Philadelphia Phillies snapped their four-game losing streak on Friday night, taking down the Mets 3-2. Their record improves to 16-18.

  • Roberto Hernandez pitched another solid game, allowing just one run over five innings. Hernandez gave up six hits and three walks.
  • The Phillies scored their first run in the third inning with an RBI single from Domonic Brown. Its the second straight game that Brown has driven in a run.
  • Brown would drive in another run in the fifth to tie the game with another single.
  • Marlon Byrd doubled home the winning run in the 11th.
  • Chase Utley played an important role in today’s game as well, going 3-5 with two doubles and coming around to score all three of the team’s runs.
  • Jake Diekman took over for Hernandez in the sixth, and pitched a scoreless inning.
  • Mike Adams had a clean appearance in the seventh.
  • Antonio Bastardo blew the lead by allowing a run in the eighth, but stayed in the game to pitch a scoreless ninth.
  • Mario Hollands got the Phils through the 10th inning, and earned his first win of the year.
  • Jonathan Papelbon notched his 10th save.

Final Thoughts

Give the Phillies 11 innings, and that offense might just score three runs!

Sarcasm aside, there were some real positives to take from this win.

Its only been two games, but Domonic Brown is beginning to show a little life. Brown has three hits, three RBI’s, and a double in the last two games. The young outfielder has been a complete non-factor through the first month of the season, and the team certainly needed him to step and be a big part of the offense this year. His power numbers have been abysmal, and he’s been in a wretched slump that goes back to Spring Training, but he’s got a couple of nice games with some big hits under his belt in the last few days, so let’s see if he’s able to build off of that success.

The bullpen did a great job as well, allowing just one run over six innings of work. Yes, the Mets are a quite possibly an even worse offensive team than the Phillies, but for a bullpen this weak and young to come out and hold things together for that long is impressive, and it certainly played a big part in deciding the game tonight.

    - nice win we needed that –
    Howard should have scored on that Byrd double, hindsight Sandberg should have pitch run for him after the walk instead of after him trudging to third on the byrd double.
