Notes From The Phillies’ 6-4 Loss To Atlanta

howardcardsThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their third straight game on Friday night, falling to the Braves 6-4. Their record drops to 42-54.

  • A.J. Burnett wasn’t very good tonight, allowing six runs on 10 hits through just five innings. 
  • Burnett was spotted a two-run lead in the second inning, but quickly spit it back up by allowing four to score in the bottom half of the inning.
  • The Phillies offense managed just six hits, but they were still able to put up four runs thanks to some timely hits.
  • Cody Asche got the first run of the night on the board with a sac fly in the second.
  • Cameron Rupp followed Asche with an RBI single.
  • Ryan Howard came up with a two-run single in the sixth that made it a two-run game for the remainder of the night.
  • Ben Revere went 0-4 at the top of the order.
  • Jimmy Rollins went 0-2 with two walks.
  • Grady Sizemore started in left, and went 2-4.
  • Jeff Manship threw a scoreless sixth inning.
  • Antonio Bastardo worked a clean inning in the seventh.
  • Justin De Fratus pitched a scoreless eighth.

Final Thoughts

As the losses continue to pile up, there’s a lot of negative things to discuss about the Phillies.

But I want to focus on a couple of small positives tonight, just to change things up a bit.

Ryan Howard needed a good start to the second half of the season badly, and he was able to do that tonight with his two-run single. The cleanup hitter has been a large disappointment this season, and the team needs to see some signs that there’s still some magic in his bat.

Grady Sizemore actually hasn’t been a disaster of a free-agent signing. Sizemore has picked up hits in all of his appearances with the Phillies, and is currently riding a four-game hitting streak.

Cameron Rupp has proven to be a serviceable catcher, starting the majority of game in place of Carlos Ruiz. Rupp has six RBI’s in his last 10 games. That’s pretty decent production out a third-string catcher.

  1. And probably the worse news for Phillie Fans came with the Announcement
    Of a 6 Player Trade between the Angels & Padres which the Angels added
    Closer Houston Street from the Padres for their Playoff Stretch meaning there is one less Team now who would possibly be interested and able to afford J Papelbon and that has some prospects to return…

    • Paul I’m hoping the deep pocket tigers for pap. I think any team in it would give great prospects for a pap bastardo combo. Those two would help anyone’s BP. One is cheap, one is expensive.

  2. That could very well happen HAC and would solidify the Tigers
    As probably the leading contender for the WS Champion
    I am not familiar with the Tigers Farm System as far as Prospects they have
    Other contending Teams could be Orioles,Blue Jays & Brewers
    Who all need some Bullpen Help..
