PostHeaderIcon Hernandez traded to Dodgers for two players

Post to Twitter

It took until August 7, but the Phillies finally made a trade. Surprisingly, it involved an unlikely subject.

Thursday’s starter Roberto Hernandez was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two players to be named later.

Hernandez was 6-8 with a 3.87 ERA. He had come on strong of late, including a very strong performance in his last start in Washington, allowing an unearned run on four hits in eight innings.

A report indicated that the Phillies will receive two “lower minor-league players” in the deal. Hernandez was signed to a one-year deal this offseason worth $4.5 million.

Hernandez was placed on waivers on Saturday. The Phillies recently put another round of players on waivers. Cole Hamels and Marlon Byrd were claimed. At the moment, no other deals appear to be close just yet.

PostHeaderIcon Astro Blaster: 5-run 1st inning powers Phillies past Astros

Post to Twitter

The Phillies win on Tuesday was still overshadowed by the fact that only two runs had scored in the previous 34 innings. Both were from Ryan Howard.

Howard had company on Wednesday.

The Phillies scored five runs in the first and added five more in the other eight innings to score an easy 10-3 win over the Astros at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Morning Review: Outfield production leads Phillies

Post to Twitter

There were several Phillies whose names were in the mix the week leading up to the trade deadline this week. Marlon Byrd’s was a popular one.

Byrd had been here before, last season in fact. He was traded from the Mets to the Pirates and right into a playoff race.

This season, he survived.

So in his second game following the deadline, Byrd showed off more power in a year that may end up being the best of his career from a production standpoint. His 21st home run proved to be the difference in the Phillies 2-1 win over the Nationals. Read the rest of this entry »

Marlon Byrd was one of the many players the Phillies could have sold at the deadline. On Friday, one day after staying put with the Phillies, he won them a game.

PostHeaderIcon Game 110 Preview: Phillies at Nationals

Post to Twitter

The Phillies first game following a quiet deadline went just as you would expect. They hit well, they pitched well and they won convincingly. But they really lost, as Cliff Lee suffered an injury that threatens his season and the remainder of the 2014 season drags on.

The Phillies (48-61) look for a second win in a row in Washington. The Washington Nationals (58-48) try to recover from Thursday’s loss and bounce back in the series. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.

Roberto Hernandez (4-5, 3.78 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Hernandez allowed two runs on four hits in seven innings a win against the Diamondbacks in his last start. Hernandez faced the Nationals on May 4, pitching 7 1/3 shutout innings and allowing four hits in a win. In three career starts against the Nationals, Hernandez is 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA. This is his first appearance at Nationals Park.

The Phillies will face right-hander Doug Fister (10-2, 2.69 ERA). Fister allowed three hits in seven shutout innings in his last start to earn a win against the Reds. He faced the Phillies on June 5, allowing two runs on four hits in seven innings to get a win. In two career starts against the Phillies, Fister is 2-0 with a 1.20 ERA. At Nationals Park, he is 5-1 with a 2.74 ERA in seven starts.

PostHeaderIcon Phillies win game, lose Lee after quiet deadline

Post to Twitter

No matter what happened on Thursday night on the field, the actions from earlier in the day would overshadow them.

The game was one of the Phillies best in recent weeks, hitting from start to finish, 17 hits in all. On the mound, it was a disaster. But not for the reasons you would think.

The Phillies won the game against the NL East-leading Nationals, 10-4, but lost Cliff Lee to an elbow injury, icing on the cake after failing to make a trade before Thursday afternoon’s deadline. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon A Plate Full: Collision rule leads to run, Phillies win

Post to Twitter

Chances are the Phillies and Diamondbacks won’t be playing past September. But 10 teams will and if a the time should come when a game was decided by the rule that decided Sunday’s game, it will be a shame.

An error by Didi Gregorius on a pop up by Marlon Byrd with two outs sent Ryan Howard, who was on first, sprinting toward the plate. He was out by plenty. But Miguel Montero apparently took away a sliding lane, thus ruling Howard safe according to Rule 7.13 of the MLB Rulebook.

That was the eventual winning run in the Phillies 4-2 win over the D-Backs on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Game 105 Preview: Phillies vs. Diamondbacks

Post to Twitter

Trade deadline week is upon us. Sunday marks the Phillies final home game before the trade deadline. The team will not return home until Aug. 5. The roster could look completely different by then.

The Phillies (45-59) take the field for the final time at home in July in search of a series win. The Arizona Diamondbacks (45-59) go for their second series win since the All-Star Break. First pitch is at 1:35 p.m.

Roberto Hernandez (4-8, 4.25 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Hernandez allowed three runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings in his last start, taking a no-decision against the Giants. Hernandez faced the Diamondbacks on April 25, allowing four runs on seven hits in six innings and taking the loss. In two career starts against the D-Backs, Hernandez is 1-1 with a 3.60 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 1-6 with a 3.72 ERA in 13 games and 11 starts.

The Phillies will face left-hander Vidal Nuno (0-1, 3.78 ERA). Nuno allowed three runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings in his last start against the Tigers, taking a no-decision. This is Nuno’s fourth start with the Diamondbacks since being traded from the New York Yankees on July 6. Nuno is making his first career start against the Phillies and at Citizens Bank Park.

PostHeaderIcon D-Backs come back, down Phillies in 10

Post to Twitter

A look down the Arizona lineup created thoughts of a cake walk for Cliff Lee. It wasn’t smooth, but Lee didn’t suffer greatly as the Phillies offense exploded for hit after hit in the early going.

But the hits stopped coming after the third inning as the Diamondbacks started to trim away at the lead. The bullpen could not hold a three-run lead over the final four innings, forcing extras.

In the 10th, a go-ahead sacrifice fly was the difference, but a three-run home run added on capped a four-run inning and the comeback for the D-Backs, sending the Phillies to a 10-6 loss on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

Tonight marks the century mark for games in the 2014 season and it has been a long season for the Phillies. Not even Cliff Lee could improve the season for one day in his return from the DL on Monday.

The Phillies (43-56) continue their series against San Francisco in a stretch of games against top teams. The Giants (55-44) look to break a tie in the NL West as they continue their drive for another division title. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.

Roberto Hernandez (4-8, 4.22 ERA) gets the start for the Phillies. Hernandez allowed one run on three hits in eight innings in his last start on July 9, earning the win.

The Phillies will face right-hander Yusmeiro Petit (3-3, 3.86 ERA). Petit’s last appearance came on July 18 in one shutout inning of relief, allowing one hit. His last start came on May 31 against the Cardinals, allowing one run on two hits in six innings and taking the loss. In five games and one career start against the Phillies, Petit is 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA. At Citizens Bank Park, he is 0-0 with a 10.13 ERA in two games.
