Notes From The Phillies’ 10-3 Loss To Atlanta

asche1The Philadelphia Phillies lost the first game of their double-header with the Braves on Saturday, falling 10-3. Their record drops to 36-44.

  • Roberto Hernandez gave the Phils one of his stronger starts of the season, lasting seven innings and allowing four runs (only two earned) on three hits. 
  • This is the just the second time this season that Hernandez has lasted at least seven innings, and the first time he’s done it since May 4th.
  • The Phillies rolled out a really weak lineup for the first game. Weaker than usual.
  • Tony Gwynn and his below-.200 average started in right and hit second.
  • Ronny Cedeno played shortstop for Jimmy Rollins and hit eighth.
  • Koyie Hill, a catcher called up to take the place of Carlos Ruiz, made his first start of the season today.
  • Chase Utley went 1-4 with a single.
  • Ryan Howard went 1-4, and drove in one of the team’s runs. Howard also committed two errors that led to a couple of unearned runs for Hernandez.
  • Domonic Brown was back in left field for Game 1, and went 0-3.
  • Cody Asche went 0-4, and drove in a run with a groundout in the eighth.
  • Antonio Bastardo had been pitching very well as of late. He had not allowed any earned runs since May 11th before this game, but the lefty suffered a meltdown in the eighth. Bastardo recorded just one out, and allowed three hits and two walks, and was charged with five earned runs.
  • Luis Garcia relived Bastardo, and picked up the final two outs of the inning, but allowed a couple of inherited runs to score.
  • Garcia returned to pitch the ninth, and allowed another run to score.

Final Thoughts

Rolling out a lineup with guys like Gwynn, Cedeno, and Hill combined with Roberto Hernandez on the mound?

Yeah, the Phillies had very little chance of winning this first game.

  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!
