Notes From The Phillies’ 4-2 Loss To Atlanta

Ryan HowardThe Philadelphia Phillies lost the first game of their series with the Atlanta Braves, falling 4-2. Their record drops to 36-43.

  • Kyle Kendrick put the Phils in an early hole, allowing three runs in the first and one more in the second.
  • Kendrick would settle down after that to make it through six more innings, giving him a total of eight innings pitched on the night, allowing nine hits, two walks, and striking out eight.
  • All of Kendrick’s runs were given up to Freddie Freeman, who went 3-5 with a three-run homer and a double.
  • Ben Revere went 3-4 with a triple, and scored a run.
  • Jimmy Rollins went 0-4 and drove in one of the team’s runs
  • Chase Utley went 1-3 with a walk.
  • Ryan Howard went 0-4 with two strikeouts. Howard had an opportunity with two men on and two outs in the eighth, but struck out.
  • Marlon Byrd went 1-3 with a walk and an RBI.
  • Domonic Brown did not start, but struck out to end the game.
  • The team went just 1-8 with runners in scoring position.
  • B.J. Rosenberg pitched a scoreless ninth inning, striking out two.

Final Thoughts

Another early hole combined with a weak offensive showing doomed the Phils in the first game of an important series against Atlanta.

This is a series that could go a long way towards determining what the Phillies decide to do in the coming weeks at the trade deadline. If the Phillies are swept or lose three games, then its time for the front office to admit that the season is a lost cause, and really start making preparations to sell.

Even Kyle Kendrick gave up four runs early, he still did a nice job to last eight innings. The team’s bullpen really needed an easy night after logging seven innings on Thursday.

  1. It amazes me how this site continuously releases articles no one clearly cares about. This site put out two articles about the sixers and got approximately 200 comments. Flyers articles receive about 3 or 4 comments and the daily report about the latest Phillies loss gets no responses. Talk about the Sixers and Eagles….That’s what people care about right now.

  2. tua, it’s an easy fix, you don’t like the site, don’t come on here. It’s that simple!
