Notes From The Phillies’ 5-4 Loss To Miami

utleygoneThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their fifth straight game on Tuesday night, falling to the Marlins 5-4. Their record drops to 36-47.

  • A.J. Burnett tossed six innings, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks. 
  • Burnett allowed two runs in the fourth, and two runs in the fifth. He struck out 10 batters.
  • Chase Utley gave the Phillies an early lead, singling home Jimmy Rollins in the first inning. Utley finished the game 1-5.
  • Domonic Brown started in left, and went 2-5 with an RBI single in the fourth.
  • Cody Asche and Marlon Byrd hit back-to-back homers in the eighth inning to tie the game at 4.
  • Ryan Howard went 0-5 with two strikeouts.
  • Cameron Rupp started at catcher again, and went 0-4.
  • Ken Giles pitched a scoreless sixth.
  • Jake Diekman struck out two in a clean eighth.
  • Antonio Bastardo bounced back from his rough appearance over the weekend, and struck out two in a scoreless ninth.
  • Justin De Fratus took the loss. De Fratus pitched a clean 10th inning, but allowed the winning run to score in the 11th. It’s just the first earned run that De Fratus has allowed in 17 appearances since returning from the minor leagues.

Final Thoughts

Listening to Phillies’ village idiot General Manager Ruben Amaro talk to WIP yesterday was pretty amusing, to say the least.

After a week in which the Phillies went 2-6 at home, including a four-game sweep at the hands of the Braves, Amaro claims that he still isn’t sure what this team is yet.

But fear not, for Amaro believes that answers are coming. He said this road trip would serve as an excellent measuring stick for this team to see where they’re at.

If you want a measuring stick, Ruben, what about the series against the top team in the division in which the squad you assembled just fell flat on their faces, losing all four games and failing to score more than three runs in any of them? If that’s not enough of a “measuring stick”, I don’t know what is. on Facebook

  1. The 2014 Season is Over for all intents and purposes, as most of knew it would be, though I thought they could hang around and play .475 – maybe .500 Ball thru July to remain close and maybe make a late Summer Run if everything fell for them in a pretty weak NL East..

    But as of July 1st and currently 11 Games under .500 and playing .435 Ball is even worse that I expected.. Time to blow it up and Start anew like the 76ers are doing, it will take 3-4 Seasons to get back to Competitive Baseball for this Franchise needs a complete rebuild from the aging IF, to the powerless OF to Catcher and of course, replacing aging Starters in Lee/Burnett for the Future …
    I would say no Player is untouchable whether it’s Utley or Hamels to the entire 25 Man Roster, but that’s just me…
    There is not Off-Season formula to picking up 2-3 Free-Agents that’s going to get this Team over any Hump anytime soon…


  3. Reports circulating that Phils have Offered an Asst GM Position to DCar and is expecting his Response to their Offer by Thursday 7/3 by 12noon
