Notes From The Phillies’ 9-7 Win Over Milwaukee

Ryan Howard,Chase Utley 5The Philadelphia Phillies won their second straight game on Tuesday night, taking down the Brewers 9-7. Their record improves to 39-51.

  • Kyle Kendrick did not pitch very well (allowing seven runs on 11 hits over 5.2 innings) but still managed to earn a win. 
  • Kendrick initially buried the team by allowing five runs to score on a couple of home runs in the first inning, but settled in after that to throw four scoreless innings before allowing two more in the sixth.
  • The Phillies’ offense shocked the world by coming out of the gates on fire, scoring seven runs in the first three innings.
  • Chase Utley put the team up in the first inning with a sac-fly RBI that scored Ben Revere.
  • In the second inning, a couple of singles from Marlon Byrd and Cody Asche combined with a walk from Domonic Brown loaded the bases with none out. Koyie Hill singled home a run, and then Ben Revere knocked in two with a ground-rule double. Utley capped off the scoring with a two-run single.
  • Domonic Brown tacked on a run in the third with a solo homer, and then singled home two more runs in the fifth.
  • Justin De Fratus got the final out of the sixth inning, and the first out of the seventh.
  • Jake Diekman struck out two to get the team through the rest of the seventh.
  • Ken Giles allowed two hits, but still delivered a scoreless eighth.
  • Jonathan Papelbon earned his 21st save of the year.

Final Thoughts

A two-game winning streak? Nine runs in one night? Production from Domonic Brown?

The stars must have really aligned for this team last night. But all dogs have their days, I suppose.

Its good to see Chase Utley go through a bit of a resurgence. Utley has a home run and five RBI’s in the last two days, and he’s got his average back into the .290’s. Assuming the Phillies do in fact plan on doing the sensible thing and selling at the trade deadline, Utley is one of their strongest chips. on Facebook

  1. When Revere & Brown contribute Offensively,
    This is a much better Team who can play .500 Ball
    These 2 Players are the key if they are to climb back in the race for a Wildcard,
    As I have stated a few times all Season and are really
    The key to any exciting good baseball for the remaining Season
    Can they keep it up as they both been warming up?

    • Paul obviously LF and cf are a 1/4 of your lineup these two have not contributed whatsoever the keys till remains Howard… Him not hitting changes the dynamics of the lineup… If you remember the brief times that they have played well is when Howard was hitting, it’s a simple formula.

      • Yes but Revere sets the stable up atop and is lately getting on base and hitting to .300, meanwhile Brown resets the bottom 1/3rd of the line-up
        And has brought his average up about 20 Pts over the last 2 weeks
        I don’t think any of us thought he would bat .280 with 35 HR’s but that
        He would be at least .260 Hitter with 20-25 HR’s & 80 RBI’s and not
        The .200-.210 Hitter that’s he’s been most of the Season
        Howard is just too easy to pitch around and throw him garbage pitches which he can’t lay off.. At least with these other 2 hitting they can still score sone runs…

        • I wasn’t disagreeing with you at all. Revere has to hit 295-305 and score 100 runs ( his defense gives up tons of runs). Dom brown has to hit 23 hr and hot 269 as you mention. My point is that if Howard doesn’t get back to a dominating hitter than it’s all moot.

          • Yes I agree, that Phils can’t seriously contend without a consistently productive Howard.. but at least if these 2 Players can get hot, and remain productive down the stretch, they can get back and at least play .500 ball and maybe contend for Wildcard and with Utley,Byrd & Asche playing pretty well would not have to be as reliant on Howard…
            Probably a Pipe Dream on my Part, but at least it’s good to see Revere & Brown playing better…
