Raul Ibanez followed with two hits, both singles, knocking in a run. Brian Schneider and Vance Worley (RBI), had the other two Phils’ hits, both singles, as the offense finally scored more than five runs in a game since Saturday, but still lost. Still, the offense need to get out of its present hitting funk, especially the first four batters, as they have been in a collective 0-fer stupor since Saturday. Hopefully the expected return of Ryan Howard will help the team.
