Notes From The Phillies’ 7-3 Loss To Boston

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their eighth straight game on Wednesday night, falling to the Red Sox 7-3. Their record drops to 21-43.

On The Mound

  • Jeremy Hellickson started and lasted just five innings, allowing six runs on nine hits.
  • Hellickson immediately put the team down early in the game, allowing five runs in the first two innings.
  • Luis Garcia took over in the sixth and threw two scoreless innings.
  • Adam Morgan pitched a scoreless eighth and gave up a run in the ninth.
  • Jeanmar Gomez got the final two outs of the ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up three runs on six hits.
  • Aaron Altherr delivered a two-run homer in the third inning, and Howie Kendrick also singled home a run earlier in the frame.
  • Odubel Herrera has finally cooled off, going 0-10 in the last two games.
  • Tommy Joseph went 1-2 with a double and two walks.
  • After a four-hit effort on Tuesday, Maikel Franco returned to mediocrity, going 0-4.
  • Daniel Nava got another start, and went 1-3 with a single and a walk.
  • Cameron Rupp went 0-4 with two strikeouts.
  • Freddy Galvis went 2-3 with a double and a walk.

Final Thoughts

Remember when Jeremy Hellickson had trade value?

At the end of April, Hellickson was pitching a like a top of the rotation starter that was sure to draw some significant interest from contending teams at the trade deadline.

In the last month and a half, Hellickson has almost completely destroyed his value. Hellickson hasn’t pitched seven innings in a start since April 21st. He’s lasted six innings in only three of his last 11 starts. He’s given up three or more runs in all but one of those outings.

Unless the veteran figures things out quickly, its hard to imagine the Phils getting anything more than a middling prospect for him at the deadline.

  1. Have the Phillies Fired their Pitching Coaching yet and why is Adam Morgan still up?? Don’t the Phils have anyone, anywhere in their Pitching System better than Morgan.. A Brutal Season all the way around and major step back by the Phillies Organization… it’s going to be awhile before they contend again!!

    • Your beloved cubs lost 101 games 4 years before winning, 96 3 years and 86 2 years before winning the WS. It’s the new look baseball.
      Your other love he Red Sox lost 93 then won e WS then lost 91 the following year.
      By the way I see it the Phil’s are trying to model themselves in this new look. Build up e farm and supplement with over paid (actually market paid) players

  2. The Phil’s have he winningest farm system in baseball. Again, I will try to explain a little something to you although you have comprehension problems. If they bring guys up to early they have to put them in he 40 man roster to protect them. Right now they have about 47-50 guys they want to protect …some in the majors and many in the minors
