Notes From The Phillies’ 10-9 Loss To Seattle

The Philadelphia Phillies lost the first game of their series with the Mariners on Tuesday night 10-9. Their record drops to 13-18.

On The Mound

  • Another poor start for Jerad Eickhoff, who lasted just 3.2 innings and allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks.
  • Eickhoff was spotted a four-run lead after the first inning, but spit it up.
  • Eickhoff’s ERA has shot up to 4.76 over his last four starts.
  • Edubray Ramos got the final out of the fifth inning.
  • Mark Leiter threw 1.1 innings, and gave up two runs.
  • Joely Rodriguez gave up two runs in 1.2 innings of work.
  • Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris gave up a run in the ninth and took the loss.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up nine runs on 11 hits.
  • The outburst began in the first inning, with Odubel Herrera getting things going with an RBI-double. Michael Saunders hit a two-run homer two batters later, and Tommy Joseph supplied a solo shot to cap the scoring.
  • In the bottom of the fourth, the team added five more runs. Freddy Galvis doubled home a run. Recently recalled infielder Ty Kelly got the second run home with a sacrifice fly. Aaron Altherr provided the big blow of the inning with a three-run homer.
  • Altherr also doubled in the game.
  • Maikel Franco turned in an 0-5, dropping his average to .208.
  • Tommy Joseph worked three walks.
  • Cameron Rupp went 2-3.

Final Thoughts

On a night where the offense supplies more than five runs, the Phillies’ pitching staff has generally been good enough to supply a win.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case last night.

Jerad Eickhoff has given up four runs or more in each of his last four starts. Joely Rodriguez has given up runs in each of his last three appearances. Hector Neris has given up runs in five of his last nine.

  1. Twice the Phillies Blow a 4 Run Lead… They just can’t seem to be able to close the Door on anybody…Its going to be a long Summer as their Bullpen (outside of Pat Neshak) is already toast..
