Notes From The Phillies’ 7-2 Loss To Washington

sean-osullivanThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their sixth straight game on Friday night, falling to the Nationals 7-2. Their record drops to 3-8.

On The Mound

  • Sean O’Sullivan made his second start of the season, and lasted just five innings while allowing four runs. 
  • O’Sullivan gave up three runs in the first inning. He allowed five hits, two walks, and two homers.
  • Jeanmar Gomez pitched 1.2 innings, and allowed a run.
  • Jake Diekman continues to struggle, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while recording just one out.
  • Ken Giles game on to get some work in the eighth inning, and pitched a scoreless inning despite giving up two hits.

At The Plate

  • The Phillies managed just two runs on seven hits. 
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-4 with his second triple in a week.
  • Freddy Galvis went 0-4 but drove in a run.
  • Chase Utley turned in his third straight 0-for, going 0-4.
  • Jeff Francoeur continues to hit out of the cleanup spot, going 1-3.
  • Cody Asche went 0-4 with three strikeouts.
  • Carlos Ruiz went 1-4 with a single.
  • Ryan Howard went 1-4, driving in a meaningless run in the ninth inning.
  • Darin Ruf went 1-4 with three strikeouts.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies have now failed to score more than two runs in each of their last three games.

They’ve also failed to score more than two runs in nine of their 11 games.

That’s a mind-blowing statistic, but it speaks to just how wretched this roster that Phillies’ village idiot General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. assembled has been.

With an offense this bad, I can’t believe they even have three wins.

Phils are Batting an anemic .149 as a Team which is dead-last in all of Baseball
They very well could be the worst Team in MLB in 2015 and who still carries a very high-payroll (Top 10) …

They are a Poor Club all the way around.. Papelbon has probably been the most consistent Player the last 2 Seasons which is hard to write but probably true.. I predicted a last Place Finish last season and a basement finish again this Season, nothing new going on with the Phils until GM Amaro is gone…

Yup, you are in your glory. You were negative when they were winning 95-100 games because you are happiest whining and bitching… Now you have something to complain about
