PostHeaderIcon Rockie Road: Phillies silenced again, fall to Rockies

Post to Twitter

Another night, another lack of support for a starting pitcher.

Kyle Kendrick pitched well but his efforts were for naught as the Phillies offense struggled again.

The Phillies made it four straight games without an extra-base hit and managed just five hits and one unearned run in a 3-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night at Coors Field. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Game 17 Preview: Kendrick starts in Denver

Post to Twitter

Friday’s series opener and first game on a 10-game road trip couldn’t have been any worse. The 12-1 shellacking by the Rockies was a reminder that the Phillies could struggle mightily this season.

The Phillies (7-9) need to answer the call on Saturday with a bounce-back game. The Colorado Rockies (9-9) look to break above the .500 mark and claim the series. First pitch of the series opener is at 8:10 p.m.

Kyle Kendrick (0-1, 3.94 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Kendrick allowed three runs – two earned – on six hits in six innings in his last start against the Marlins on Sunday, a no-decision in the Phillies 4-3 win. In 11 games and 10 starts against the Rockies, Kendrick is 3-2 with a 5.63 ERA. At Coors Field, he is 1-0 with a 5.58 ERA.

The Phillies will face right-hander Jordan Lyles (2-1, 1.89 ERA). Lyles allowed three runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Padres in his last start. In two career starts against the Phillies, Lyles is 0-0 with a 4.09 ERA. At Coors Field, he is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA.

Post to Twitter

A late single by Ben Revere helped the Phillies salvage the series finale against the Braves on Thursday. With a win on getaway day, the Phillies hit the road preparing for a 10-game road trip.

The Phillies (7-8) look to return to .500 in the first game of the road trip. The Colorado Rockies (8-9) can also hit the .500 mark with a win. First pitch of the series opener is at 8:40 p.m.

Jonathan Pettibone (0-1, 3.94 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Pettibone pitched five innings allowing two runs – one earned – in his first start of the season against the Marlins on Saturday. Pettibone’s only career start against the Rockies was rough, as he allowed seven runs – six earned – on 10 hits in three innings. The start was at Coors Field.

The Phillies will face right-hander Tyler Chatwood (2-1, 1.89 ERA). Chatwood allowed four runs in six innings against the Giants in his first start of the season on Sunday, taking a no-decision. In two career starts against the Phillies, Chatwood is 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA. At Coors Field, he is 11-13 with a 4.68 ERA.

PostHeaderIcon Crucial penalty haunts Flyers as Rangers take Game 1

Post to Twitter

NOTE: The following post is in correspondence with Flyerdelphia. Due to a server outage, Flyerdelphia is currently unable to post any new stories. We thank all readers for continued support and understanding as our server fixes this issue.

The opening game of a playoff series can usually bring out intensity and energy of a new beginning. There was intensity, but for most of the game, there was a feeling out process.

Physical play was relatively light and penalties were rare. One of those penalties proved to be a game-changer.

A four-minute power play midway through the third resulted in two Ranger goals, allowing the Rangers to continue their long-running success at home against the Flyers and win Game 1, 4-1, on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

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 »
