PostHeaderIcon Game 15 Preview: Burnett returns, Phils look to avoid sweep

Post to Twitter

A struggle at the plate handed the Phillies another loss on Wednesday night, putting the Phils in danger of another sweep.

The Phillies (6-8) couldn’t find a clutch hit on Wednesday as they dropped their second straight game. The Atlanta Braves (10-4) can put an exclamation point on the series with another win on Thursday afternoon, which will complete the sweep. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m.

A.J. Burnett (0-1, 3.94 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Burnett allowed just two runs on five hits in his last start but only last 4 1/3 innings before leaving with an injury. In 21 games and 20 starts against the Braves, Burnett is 5-12 with a 4.14 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 3-3 with a 4.66 ERA.

The Phillies will face left-hander Alex Wood (2-1, 1.89 ERA). Wood allowed one run in five innings in his last start against the Nationals, picking up the win. In seven games and two starts against the Phillies, Wood is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 1-0 with a 4.38 ERA.

PostHeaderIcon Gattis’ homer all Teheran, Braves need to down Lee, Phillies

Post to Twitter

The Phillies wanted more innings out of their starting rotation. They got that on Wednesday night.

In exchange for an excellent quality start from Cliff Lee, the Phillies couldn’t make anything happen offensively.

The newest Phillie killer, Evan Gattis, homered off Lee in the fourth. That was the only offense the Braves would need in a 1-0 win over the Phillies on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Game 14 Preview: Lee starts after rain-out

Post to Twitter

After a rain-out on Tuesday – the Phillies second of the season already – baseball is back on Wednesday night. The day off certainly comes as an aid for both teams after Monday’s wild game.

The Phillies (6-7) are still looking to rebound from Monday’s tough loss. The Atlanta Braves (9-4) look to continue their surge from the past week. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.

Cliff Lee (2-1, 5.50 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Lee allowed three runs over six innings in his last start, suffering his first loss of the season to the Brewers. In 15 career starts against the Braves, Lee is 7-6 with a 2.80 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 23-17 with a 2.84 ERA.

The Phillies will face right-hander Julio Teheran (1-1, 2.48 ERA). Teheran allowed five runs – two earned – on 10 hits in six innings in a no-decision against the Nationals. In four games and three starts against the Phillies, Teheran is 1-2 with a 5.79 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA.

PostHeaderIcon Morning Review: Phillies bullpen sends friendly reminder

Post to Twitter

Monday night’s 9-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves bumped the Phillies to 6-7 on the young season. As Dan Uggla connected on a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth that restored the lead for the Braves, it sucked all the energy out of Citizens Bank Park.

Attendance at Monday’s game totaled 26,516, another noticeably small crowd. For a few moments, there was life and energy surrounding a Phillies comeback.

A lot about the eighth inning was unlikely, right down to Domonic Brown’s heroics. As the ninth inning began, there was a feeling that the Phillies were about to defeat the NL East leading Braves and move one game above .500.

It felt like 2008. The Phillies bullpen was quick to remind everyone that this is 2014 and such a thing, at least for now, is probably not possible. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon An Uggla game for Phillies goes to Braves

Post to Twitter

Domonic Brown connected on 1-0 pitch off Luis Avilan in the eighth inning that sent Citizens Bank Park into a frenzy. Shades of 2008 had popped up at the ballpark and it was a joy to see.

Then came the friendly reminder that 2014 will be a lot different.

Dan Uggla’s second home run of the game was a grand slam with one out in the ninth, erasing the Phillies 6-5 lead and turning it in favor of the Braves. Atlanta would hold on by that score after a wild game that featured seven home runs and a lot of poor pitching, as the Braves took away another late Phillies lead to win, 9-6, on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park.  Read the rest of this entry »

Fresh off a weekend sweep of the Marlins, the Phillies have erased the earlier sweep against the Brewers. The next home series will prove to be a much more substantial test within the division.

The Phillies (6-6) start over with an even record and can go above .500 for the first time since claiming a 14-10 win on Opening Day. The Atlanta Braves (8-4) are coming off a successful weekend against the Washington Nationals. They serve as the Phillies next test in this young season. First pitch of the series opener is at 7:05 p.m.

Roberto Hernandez (1-0, 4.35 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Hernandez allowed four runs – three earned – on seven hits in five innings in his last start against the Brewers, taking a no-decision. In his only career start against the Braves, Hernandez allowed two runs in seven innings to earn the win. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 0-1 with an 8.00 ERA.

The Phillies will face right-hander Ervin Santana (1-0, 0.00 ERA). Santana pitched eight shutout innings allowing three hits in his Braves debut against the Mets. In one career start against the Phillies, Santana picked up the win, allowing an unearned run on two hits in seven innings. The start was at Citizens Bank Park.

Sunday marked the fifth anniversary of Harry Kalas’ untimely passing in 2009. If you asked fans to give you some of HK’s memorable calls, you would get various selections. But most everyone would choose the 2008 World Series call, Mike Schmidt’s 500th home run and one call that Harry used several times regarding Chase Utley.

Fans know him as “The Man.” Utley was the man of the day on Sunday, going 3-for-4 and hitting the go-ahead home run in the eighth inning to give the Phillies a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins, completing the sweep. Read the rest of this entry »

The Phillies (5-6) have a chance to deliver more big hits and get a sweep to put them back to .500. The Miami Marlins (5-7) continue to slide, looking to snap a growing six-game losing streak. First pitch is at 1:35 p.m.

Kyle Kendrick (0-1, 3.75 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Kendrick suffered the loss in his last start, allowing four earned runs in five innings in Tuesday’s home opener against the Brewers. In 21 career games against the Marlins, Kendrick is 12-2 with a 3.48 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 33-31 with a 4.42 ERA.

The Phillies will face right-hander Henderson Alvarez (0-2, 4.15 ERA). Alvarez allowed three runs – one earned – in five innings in taking the loss in his last start against the Nationals.
