Notes From The Phillies’ 3-2 Loss To Pittsburgh

Ryan HowardThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their second straight game on Saturday afternoon, falling to the Pirates 3-2. Their record drops to 37-50.

  • David Buchanan took the loss, pitching six innings and allowing three runs on six hits. 
  • The Phillies offense generated only two runs for the second straight game.
  • They managed just five hits.
  • Marlon Byrd and Cody Asche drove in the team’s only runs with a couple of solo homers.
  • For Byrd, it was his 17th of the year.
  • Ryan Howard went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Howard has just one RBI since June 20th.
  • Cameron Rupp was the catcher again, and went 0-3.
  • Jimmy Rollins and Ben Revere went a combined 0-6 at the top of the order.
  • Ken Giles pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, and struck out two.
  • Antonio Bastardo got the final two outs of the eighth inning.

Final Thoughts

Ryan Howard has really been struggling heavily over the last month and a half.

With the exception of one week where he drove in nine runs, Howard’s bat has been almost completely silent.

Since June 3rd, if you take away the four-game stretch where those nine RBI’s came from, Howard has just two RBI’s in the other 27 games in that stretch.

That’s terrible production from the cleanup position.

  1. The steam has Lost Hope and has given up..
    Call up Ruf and play him everyday at 1B and occasionally
    LF, waive Gwynn, let Revere play everyday, let Asche Play everyday &
    Play these Young Catchers and see what they have..
    Keep Rollins, Utley & Byrd as your 2 thru 4 Hitters
    And see what happens..

  2. Do you post on every article ever posted on gcobb, I would bet you are batting 90 percent

    For a geek like you, damn you take the cake

    • Yes I do Jake,
      And are you going to stop me…
      If u have a problem, then skip right over…

  3. Phils drop another against the Best Team in Baseball since Late May,
    That’s right, the Pittsburgh Pirates…. Go Bucco’s..

  4. Phils batting average in todays game minus Byrd was about 104. They can’t hit for shit and this has been a problem for a long time.
