Notes From Phillies’ 12-5 Win Over Cincinnati

The Phillies won their third straight game on Monday night, outscoring the Reds 12-5. The victory puts the Phils at 57-65 for the season.

  • It was time for a throwback game in which the Phillies’ offense simply outhit the opposition. Starter Roy Halladay wasn’t great tonight, but he didn’t need to be.
  • Halladay had a rough game, allowing five runs on 10 hits in seven innings. The 35-year old pitched out of jams throughout the night, and just wasn’t on top of his game.
  • John Mayberry Jr. was one of several big offensive contributors tonight, going 3-5 and driving in three runs. He hit his eleventh home run of the season in the sixth inning.
  • Ryan Howard and Erik Kratz also homered in the rout, with solo shots in the third and fourth innings.
  • Chase Utley also joined in the hit parade with a double and two RBIs.
  • Juan Pierre finished with a three-hit game, and hit his eighth double of the year. He also stole two bases.
  • Placido Polanco made his return to the lineup, and went 2-4 with a walk.
  • Domonic Brown went 1-4 with a two-run double, and also made a nice play on an outfield assist to throw a man out at home.
  • B.J. Rosenberg, Antonio Bastardo, and Josh Lindblom combined to pitch the final two innings.
  • It was the first time Bastardo had pitched in 12 games. He allowed a hit, but also struck out two.
  • The Phillies went a tidy 6-15 with runners in scoring position.
  • Every pitcher that appeared in the game for the Reds surrendered at least one earned run, and the Phils were held scoreless in only the second inning.

As I said…the Phillies should have relied on the youngins from day #1. They would have been in a much stronger position. They probably would have been in the play-offs now and they wouldn’t have even been compelled to trade Victorino. Hopefully Victorino comes back after the end of the season and they can get him to play LF.

109876, someone who is in his 15 year, who has been a top 3 pitcher most of his career, has won the 2 Cy Youngs, has a career record of 195-99, has over 2,000 K’s, 8 All Star appearances, pitched a no hitter, a perfect game, & one of the hardest working players in MLB, IS NOT A FRAUD!!! Listen, I get your frustration, & I’ve been the biggest ripper of this team on this site, but Doc is pitching with an injury, & is in his FIFTEENTH YEAR! He is in decline. But that hardly qualifies him as a FRAUD! But don’t let the truth, get in the way of your bad argument.

BTW, a Prophet, is someone who speaks for God, or who predicts the future. I think you meant false messiah, or savior. That title SOLELY belongs to Utley. Proofread, before you hit send. I agree with you though, this season can’t get over fast enough.
