Notes From The Phillies’ 5-1 Loss To Atlanta

Miami Marlins v Philadelphia PhilliesThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their third straight game on Saturday night, falling to the Braves 5-1. Their record drops to 36-45.

  • Sean O’Sullivan was called up to start the second game in today’s double-header. O’Sullivan lasted 5.2 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and no walks. 
  • O’Sullivan pitched very well through his first five innings, allowing just one run. However, things fell apart for him in the sixth. He actually started out the inning strong by picking up two quick outs, but then allowed three straight singles before being lifted for Mario Hollands.
  • Hollands entered the game for O’Sullivan in the sixth, and gave up a two-run double that allowed a couple of inherited runs to score. Hollands did return to pitch a scoreless seventh.
  • B.J. Rosenberg worked the final two innings of the game, and allowed a solo home run.
  • The Phillies’ offense was once again a no-show. The lineup generated just one run on six hits.
  • The team’s only run came in the third inning on a sac fly RBI from Jimmy Rollins.
  • Ben Revere went 1-4 out of the lead-off spot with a single.
  • Marlon Byrd went 1-4 with a single.
  • Ryan Howard went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Cesar Hernandez started at second for Chase Utley, and went 1-3 with a single.
  • Cameron Rupp was the starting catcher for this game, and went 2-4 with a double, the team’s only extra-base hit.

Final Thoughts

I don’t like how Ryne Sandberg put his lineups together for today’s double-header.

Sandberg opted to rest Marlon Byrd and Jimmy Rollins in the afternoon game, and then rest Chase Utley during the night game.

It certainly wasn’t going to be possible for these older veterans to perform in both games, but I would have rather seen Sandberg just hold everyone out of one game, and then come back with a lineup at full strength in the other.

This lineup is pitiful even when all of its starters are together. By subtracting one or two of the veterans from the order for a game, the already limited potency of the offense is just diluted even further, and winning even one of these two games becomes that much more of an impossible task.

  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.
