The Phils added several bad defensive plays to go along with their sad sack offense as they split the series with the Padres, losing 6-1.

Bad defesnse, added to a sad sack offense, ends up giving the Phils a series split with the Padres, losing 6-1.

The Padres took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Chase Headley hits an RBI double, knocking in Will Venable, who had started the inning off with a bunt single, then reached second base as Phils’ starter Joe Blanton misread a slow doubleplay grounder to the mound by Mark Kotsay, allowing it to bounce over his head, for a force attempt, fielding error, giving the Padres a 1-0 lead, while sending Kotsay, who had been safe at first on the error as he beat shortstop’s Jimmy Rollins throw to first, would stop at third base. The Padres then took a 2-0 lead as Nick Hundley hits a sacrifice fly to center, scoring Kotsay from third, before Venable is thrown out trying to move up to third base, 9-5, on a good throw by center fielder Shane Victorino, for the inning’s second out. The Phils would get a run back in the second as, with two men on, and with two men out, Juan Pierre would hit a single to right, which would send Carlos Ruiz, who had earlier singled, then moved up to second base on Freddy Galvis’ ground out, 2-3, to third base, and Joe Blanton, who had just walked, up to second base, before Ruiz would be sent home as right fielder Venable committed a fielding error on the ball, cutting the Padres lead down to 2-1. The Padres would get the run back in the third as, with a man on first, and with two men out, Hundley hits an RBI triple, knocking in Headley, who had just walked, giving the Padres a 3-1 lead. The Padres then made it a 4-0 lead as Yonder Alonso reached first base on Jim Thome’s fielding error, allowing Hundley to score. The Padres then added to their lead in the sixth as, with one man on, and with two men out, Hundley hits a two-run home run, his second home run of the season, scoring Headley, who had just walked, giving the Padres a 6-0 lead. That would end up being the final score as Victorino ended the game by grounding out, 2-3, for the game’s final out.

Joe Blanton (1-3, 4.34) took the lost as he went six innings, giving up six runs, only three of which were earned, on seven hits and two walks, while he struck out two. Joe Savery pitched two 1-2-3 innings. Anthony Bass (1-2, 2.33) got the win as he pitched six strong innings, giving up just a run on three hits and five walks, while he struck out seven. Joe Thatcher, Luke Gregerson and Ernesto Frieri combined for three scoreless innings, giving up five hits (Thatcher (1), Gregerson (3), Ernesto (1)) between them, while striking out four (Thatcher (1), Gregerson (1), Frieri (2)).

The Phils had only eight hits in the game, with Juan Pierre leading the team with three singles, as he raised his batting average to .326, with Jimmy Rollins following with two hits, both singles. Jim Thome (Single), Ty Wigginton (Single) and Carlos Ruiz (Double) had the other three Phils’ hits. The Phils had no RBIs in the game as their only run had scored on a Padres’ fielding error. The Phils, who had some very sloppy defense in the ballgame, as they committed three errors, and several other bad plays, to go along with their presently anemic batting, as they were unable to capitalize on a few scoring opportunities, had five walks and two stolen bases (Rollins (3 & 4)) in the ballgame. The team continues to leave a ton of runners on base, as they went only 1 for 9 in RISP opportunities.

The Phils (7-9, 5th East) will conclude their western road trip with a three-game series with the Diamondbacks (8-8, 3rd West) starting with a night game tonight. The game will be played at Chase Field, and it will start at 9:40 pm EDT (6:40 pm MDT). The Phils will send to the mound Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 1.93), who will be taking Cliff Lee’s spot in the rotation as he recovers from his left oblique strain. Kendrick last pitched in relief on April 17 against the Giants, as he pitched two scoreless innings, giving up two hits and a walk, while striking out a batter, in the Phils’ 4-2 lost. He will be seeing if he can keep the Phils in the game, while working on a pitch count. The D-backs will counter with Wade Miley (1-0, 3.12), who is also coming out of the bullpen to make the start. His last appearance was in relief against the Braves on April 19, as he went one and two-thirds innings, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk, while striking out a batter, in the D-backs’ 10-2 lost. He will be seeing if he can continue the Phils’ batting troubles. The Phils hope that they can get some batting going in another park that have been a known house of horrors for them.

The Padres took the lead in the second as, with the bases loaded via walks to Yonder Alonso, Cameron Maybin and Jason Bartlett, as Phils’ starter Roy Halladay uncharacteristically misses the plate with his pitches, and with one man out, Orlando Hudson hits into an RBI ground out, 4-3, as second baseman Freddy Galvis makes a great play to keep the ball from going into right field for a base hit, bringing in Alonso, giving the Padres a 1-0 lead, while sending Maybin to third base and Bartlett up to second base. The Padres added to their lead in the third as, with two men on, and with two men out, Alonso hits an RBI double, knocking in Chase Headley, who had earlier singled, then stopped at second base on Nick Hundley’s single, giving the Padres a 2-0 lead, while sending Hundley, who had just singled, on to third.

The Phils would finally get on the board in the ninth as, with a man on third and with two men out, Ty Wigginton hits an RBI double, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had started the inning off with a walk, then moved up to first second, and then to third on defensive indifference, making it a 5-1 Padres’ lead. But that would end up being the final score as Hudson Street ended the game by striking out Galvis, swinging, for the game’s final out.

Two batters later, after Rob Johnson has walked, reloading the bases, the Padres made it an 8-6 Phils’ lead, as pinch hitter Kyle Phillips walked, forcing in Denorfia, while Forsythe and Johnson both moved up a base. The Phils then got out of the inning as, after Phillips was replaced at first base by pinch runner Cory Luebke, Maybin hit into a 1-3 ground out.
