Notes From The Phillies’ 3-0 Loss To Pittsburgh

The Philadelphia Phillies had their two-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday afternoon, falling to the Pirates 3-0. Their record drops to 28-54.

On The Mound

  • Mark Leiter got another start, and lasted 5.1 innings, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks.
  • Luis Garcia took over in the sixth, and worked 1.2 scoreless.
  • Ricardo Pinto worked the eighth and ninth, allowing a solo home run and striking out three.

At The Plate

  • The offense was shutout, managing only six hits.
  • Ty Kelly started at second and hit in the leadoff spot, going 0-3.
  • Seriously, that’s how bad things have gotten for the Phillies this year, they’ve gotten to a situation where Ty Kelly is starting and batting at the top of the order.
  • Freddy Galvis went 1-3 with a double and walked twice.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-4 with a triple.
  • Maikel Franco turned in an 0-4.
  • Nick Williams went 0-4, the first time he’s gone hitless since being promoted to the majors.
  • Tommy Joseph also turned in an 0-4.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-4 with a couple of singles out of the seventh spot.
  • Andrew Knapp went 0-1 with three walks.
  • Cameron Perkins and Andres Blanco each picked up pinch-hit singles.

Final Thoughts

Mark Leiter may have made his last start in the rotation. Jerad Eickhoff is making a rehab start in the minors and could rejoin the rotation in the next week.

Leiter has been much more effective for the Phils as a starter than he was during his stint out of the bullpen. He’s pitched well enough to get another opportunity at some point, but the team’s rotation is rather crowded at the moment, meaning that he’ll return to the minors to stay stretched out and get his innings in down there.
