Notes From The Phillies’ 4-3 Loss To San Diego

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their fourth straight game on Friday night, falling to the Padres 4-3. Their record drops to 28-57.

On The Mound

  • Nick Pivetta had another solid start, lasting seven innings and allowing three runs on five hits.
  • Pivetta’s biggest issue was keeping the ball in the yard, all three of his runs came on solo homers.
  • Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris gave up a run on two hits in the ninth, taking the loss.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed three runs on nine hits.
  • Tommy Joseph hit a solo homer in the fourth inning.
  • After a lengthy rain delay, the team would come back to score two runs in the seventh, with Daniel Nava and Freddy Galvis each driving in a run.
  • Cameron Perkins started in left and went 1-3 with a double.
  • Galvis went 1-5 on the night.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-4 with a single.
  • Maikel Franco turned in an 0-4 effort.
  • Tommy Joseph finished 2-2 with a double and two walks to go with his homer.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-4 with a single.
  • Andres Blanco started again at second, and went 0-4.
  • Cameron Rupp went 2-4 with a couple of singles.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies are limping towards the All-Star break on another losing streak.

You look at the lineups that this team rolls out on a nightly basis, and its pretty bad, even as far as a terrible team is concerned.

Second base has been a disaster since Cesar Hernandez went on the disabled list. Howie Kendrick filled in nicely for a short time, but he too made his way back to the DL, and so Andres Blanco has been taking most of the starts there and hasn’t done anything with them.

Blanco is barely hitting above .150.

Then you have Cameron Perkins, who really doesn’t belong in the majors, taking a start out in left. Why Nick Williams rode the bench for a second straight game is beyond me.

And then there’s Cameron Rupp, a guy who has been a massive disappointment that we haven’t really talked enough about this year.

Rupp, barely hitting above .200, has regressed significantly from the guy who hit 14 homers and drove in 54 RBI’s with 26 doubles a year ago. This year Rupp is on pace for just about 10 homers, 28 RBI’s, and 16 doubles.
