Notes From The Phillies’ 6-3 Loss To Pittsburgh

The Philadelphia Phillies lost the second game of their series with the Pirates, falling 6-3 on Saturday afternoon. Their record drops to 15-25.

On The Mound

  • Vince Velasquez endured another rough start, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks over just 5.1 innings of work.
  • Velasquez started with two scoreless innings, and was then touched up for a run in both the third and fourth innings.
  • After a scoreless fifth, things really unraveled when Velasquez got hit around for four in the sixth before being pulled.
  • Mark Leiter finished off the sixth, and allowed an additional run to score.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Edubray Ramos loaded the bases, but managed to escape with a scoreless eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed three runs on nine hits.
  • Aaron Altherr drove in two of the team’s three runs, picking up an RBI-groundout in the first and an RBI-double in the eighth.
  • Cameron Rupp singled home a run in the seventh.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 2-4 with a pair of singles.
  • Freddy Galvis hit out of the two-hole, and went 2-4 with a double.
  • Tommy Joseph hit fourth and went 0-4.
  • Odubel Herrera turned in another 0-4, dropping his average to .236.
  • Maikel Franco went 1-4 with a single.
  • Michael Saunders hit seventh, and went 0-4, dropping his average to .239.

Final Thoughts

Vince Velasquez has been a major disappointment in his second season with the team.

Velasquez through eight starts has only provided two quality starts. He’s allowed three runs or less in only four appearances. He’s allowed less than three runs in only one.

Velasquez is ERA is just a shade below 6.00 at 5.98. It’s still early in the season, but he just hasn’t been able to get himself into a groove through the first month and a half.
