Notes From The Phillies’ 4-1 Win Over Milwaukee

Philadelphia Phillies v Milwaukee BrewersThe Philadelphia Phillies won their third straight game on Wednesday night, taking down the Brewers 4-1. Their record improves to 40-51.

  • Roberto Hernandez turned in his strongest performance of the year, tossing eight innings and allowing just one run on three hits and two walks. 
  • Hernandez won his fourth game of the year, and lowered his ERA to 4.22.
  • Chase Utley stayed hot, going 2-4 and hitting a solo home run in the first inning to give the Phils an early lead.
  • Jimmy Rollins broke a 1-1 tie in the sixth inning with a two-run homer.
  • Cameron Rupp went 2-3 with an RBI in the seventh inning.
  • Ryan Howard went 0-4, dropping his average to .226.
  • Marlon Byrd, Cody Asche, and Domonic Brown went a combined 0-12.
  • Jonathan Papelbon earned his 22nd save of the season.

Final Thoughts

A couple of big, timely hits from Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins proved to be difference in this game.

Other than those two big swings from the Phillies’ veterans, the club managed to get only six runners in scoring position.

Jonathan Papelbon has pitched much better than anyone could have hoped for this year. Back in Spring Training, the fear was that Papelbon was starting to break down but the veteran has been rock solid for almost the entire season with only two blown saves and a 1.24 ERA. Hopefully the team will be able to parlay his success into some kind of deal before the deadline.

Ridding themselves of Papelbon is a key to whatever chance they may have at turning things around next year. By unloading Papelbon, they can remove one of the club’s most toxic personalities, clear the way for Ken Giles to become the team’s closer, and free up some payroll that they can use to help improve this offense.

  1. I would rather have less situations with RISP and getting timely hits then the usual 0-10 with RISP.

  2. ***Phils Send LHP Cole Hamels & 3B Cody Asche to the Yankees for
    LHP CC Sabathia, OF Carlos Beltran & 3B Alex Rodriquez ….

    • My above Trade Runor is off due to Carlos Beltean hitting the DL
      This afternoon after breaking his nose on a foul ball in BP Practice earlier..

      • Pman I know u are screwing around but what kind of prospect can we get for a lights out closer? Pap has been great but our bp is pretty good without him…. A top double A OF?

        • I think Pap will be in Demand for he has had a very good Season thus far,
          Either to the Tigers, Angels, Dodgers, Orioles or Giants who all have some Prospects and have Closer issues
          Phils could really a OF, Infield & Catcher Prospects
          Yankees are desperate for Starters but don’t have many Prospects
          Down on the Farm outside of Catcher and would probably take a flyer
          On Cliff Lee,

  3. I can see Pap, & Lee +$$ going to Baltimore for a package of 2, or 3 of SP Gausman- SP Bundy (coming off Tommy John)- SP Harvey- 2B/ SS Schoop- C Sisco- RP Keller. But as long as Ruin 2morrow is still here, expect a horrible return, with shady prospects. Even if we do rebuild, retool, whatever you want to call his insanity retardedness, can anyone trust him to get value in return? If if they do get high interest in some this dreck, they are going to have to be willing to swallow alot of $$$$, & I can’t see the absentee, tightwad ownership doing so. Hearing Ruin tlak the last 3 days, on dickhead Missanelli, CSN, & WIP, I have even less cofidence in him now. He has pudding for brains, has NO PLAN, & knows his days are numbered! This team is 3 years away, from being 3 years away, unless from Montgomery- Ruin 2morrow- scouts- & all of player developmental crew are purged!
