Notes From The Phillies’ 4-0 Loss To Miami

asche1The Philadelphia Phillies lost their third straight game on Monday night, falling to the Marlins 4-0. Their record drops to 34-41.

  • Roberto Hernandez pitched six innings, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks.
  • Hernandez allowed two runs to score in the first inning, but settled in for five scoreless frames after that.
  • Cody Asche supplied three of the team’s six hits, going 3-3 with a double.
  • Chase Utley went 0-4, dropping his average to .296.
  • Carlos Ruiz went 0-4. Ruiz hit into an inning-ending double play in the third.
  • Domonic Brown went 0-3 with a walk. Brown failed to come through with two runners in scoring position and two outs in the fourth.
  • Mario Hollands pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, and allowed only one hit.
  • Justin De Fratus came on to get the final two outs of the eighth.
  • Antonio Bastardo had a rough go in the ninth. Bastardo recorded just one out and allowed two runs on two hits.
  • Ken Giles came in to finish the ninth, and didn’t allow any more damage.

Final Thoughts

Another lifeless offensive performance results in the 10th shutout the Phils have suffered this year.

With the exception of Cody Asche, no one in this offense has hit at all during the last three games.

Just look at how terrible the first five hitters in this lineup were tonight. Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Ruiz, Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and Marlon Byrd combined to go just 2-20.

Its just absolutely pathetic how an early two-run hole can signal defeat for this team on most nights.

On the positive side of things, Ken Giles has been very good since arriving from the minors. Giles has struck out 10 batters in his first five innings, giving him an average of two strikeouts per inning. A very limited sample, but the early return on the young reliever has been very positive. So far he’s transitioning very nicely to the big league. on Facebook

  1. Utley is below .300 now which is not good sign
    Howard is coming of a hot 2 weeks which now means he
    will have a rough couple of weeks…
    Byrd & Rollins have been consistent
    The Key to this lineup having success in 2014
    Is whether D Brown & B Revere can contribute a lot more and can
    be consistent big-league Hitters and as they approach the halfway mark,
    It appears that they can’t… 74-78 Wins is about
    The Best this Team will do,barring any moved
    2/3rds of the OF can’t Hit, or get on base enough to utilize their speed,
    have no power and are Below average Defensively..
    They wasted another good Starting Pitching effort…

  2. Now they’re back to baseball earth and the reality kicks in, fools gold those handful of games but the idiot Amaro will try to mold it into something big by allstar break so he has excuse to keep fielding this sick pathethic excuse for a major league imitation of a team.I have to give you credit Denny I don’t know if I would be able to write about these losers everyday without losin it!

  3. Saw this coming… Seriously just sign Raul too and get dom brown the fuck outta my face

    Phillies signed OF Grady Sizemore to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
    The Phillies were one of the first teams linked to Sizemore after the Red Sox released him last week and it didn’t take long for a deal to be put in place. Sizemore will report to Lehigh Valley on Thursday and could work his way up to Philadelphia rather soon. He batted just .216/.288/.324 in 205 plate appearances for Boston.
