Friday: The Phils are hurt by a grand-slam home run as they are defeated by the Giants, 7-2.

A grand-slam home run by Brandon Crawford in the sixth inning help put the Phils away as they lose to the Giants, 7-2.

The Phils took the lead in the fourth as, with runners on the corners, and with noone out, Shane Victornio, who had started the inning off with a single, then went to third base on Chase Utley’s single, would score on Tim Lincecum’s balk, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead, while sending Utley, who had just singled, up to second base. The Giants tied the game up at one-all in the fifth as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, Eli Whiteside hits an RBI double, knocking in Nate Schierholtz, who had earlier singled, then move up to second base on Brandon Crawford’s soft ground out to the second baseman, 4-3. The Giants took the lead in the sixth as, with the bases loaded, via singles by Ryan Theroit and Melky Cabrera, sending Theriot up to second base, and a walk to Buster Posey, moving up both runners, and with nobody out, Pablo Sandoval hits a sacrifice fly, scoring Theroit, giving the Giants a 2-1 lead. Two batters later, after Schierholtz had walked to reload the bases, and with one man out, Crawford hits a grand-slam home run, his third home run of the season, knocking in Cabrera, Posey and Schierholtz, giving the Giants a 6-1 lead. The Phils would get a run back in their half of sixth as Ryan Howard hits a lead-off home run, his second home run of the season, making it a 6-2 Giants’ lead. The Giants would get the run back in the eighth as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, Crawford hits an RBI single, knocking in Sandoval, who had earlier doubled, giving the Giants a 7-2 lead. That would end up being the final score as George Kontos pitched a scoreless ninth.

Vance Worley (5-6, 3.82) took the lost as he threw six innings, giving up six runs on six hits and three walks, while striking out nine. Michael Schwimer threw two scoreless innings, giving up a hit, while striking out a batter.  Jeremy Horst pitched an inning, giving up a run on three hits, while striking out a batter. Tim Lincecum (4-10, 5.72) took the lost as he went seven innings, giving up a run on five hits, two walks and a balk, while striking out six. Jeremy Affeldt pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a walk. George Kontos pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a hit, while striking out a batter.

The Phils had just six hits in the ballgame, a single by Jimmy Rollins, a single by Shane Victorino, a single by Chase Utley, a home run by Ryan Howard (RBI), a double by Carlos Ruiz and a double by Placido Polanco. The other Phil run came in on a balk, as the offense was kept tied up by the Giants’ pitching staff. The Phils also had three walks in the game.

Cole Hamels gets thirteenth win as he pitches a complete game against the Giants as the Phils win their third straight game from the World Champs, 2-1.

The Phils win another series as Cole Hamels pitches a complete game as he win his 13th start as the Phils defeat the Giants, 2-1.

The Phils took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with two men out, Hunter Pence hits an RBI single, scoring Jimmy Rollins, who had earlier doubled, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead, while sending Chase Utley, who had earlier walked, over to third, as Pablo Sandoval committed a miss catch error on Carlos Beltran’s throw to third base. The Phils then took a 2-0 lead as Utley scored on Eli Whiteside’s passed ball. That would remain the score for the next seven and a half innings, as the Giants’ starter Matt Cain and the Phils’ starter Cole Hamels would be involved in a pitcher’s duel as Cain would allow only two more man on base via a single and a walk, while striking out eight batters, while Cole would allow only six hits, as he is helped out of trouble in both the first and the fourth innings by a strikeout, one of five, and two doubleplays, and by a pop up with two men on in the eighth. After the Phils are unable to score an insurance run in the top of the ninth, the first two Giants made outs by flying out (Jeff Keppinger) and lining out (Beltron) before Sandoval came up. Sandoval made it a 2-1 Phils’ lead as he hits his twelfth home run of the season on a 2-1 fastball. But, Hamels would then shut the door as he gets Orlando Cabrera to ground out, 6-3, for the final out.

Cole Hamels (13-6, 2.53) gets the win as he pitches a complete game, giving up a run on seven hits, striking out five. Matt Cain (9-8, 3.00) took the lost as he went eight innings, giving up two runs, only one of which was earned, on three hits and two walks, while he struck out eight. Javier Lopez pitched a third of an inning, as he gave up two hits. Sergio Romo pitched two-thirds of an inning, getting out both man that he would face.

The Phils had just five hits in the game, with Hunter Pence leading the team with two hits, both single, as he knocked in the only RBI for the Phils. Jimmy Rollins (Double), Shane Victorino (Single) and Ryan Howard (Single), had the other three Phils’ hits. The other Phils run came in on a passed ball.

The Phils (74-39, 1st West) will conclude their series tomorrow with the Giants (62-52, T-1st West) with an afternoon game. The game will be played at AT&T Park and will begin at 4:05 pm EDT (1:05 pm PDT). The Phils will send to the mound Roy Oswalt (4-6, 3.79), who will be coming off the disabled list. His last major league start was a lost against the Cardinals on June 23, as he went just two innings, giving up four runs on five hits, while striking out just one batter, in the Phils’ 12-2 lost. He will be trying to see if he can help pitch the Phils into their tenth straight win while trying to get his fifth win of the season. The Giants will counter with Tim Lincecum (9-9, 2.77), who is coming off a lost against the Diamondbacks on August 2, as he went seven innings, giving up two runs on three hits and three walks, while striking out eight, in the Giants’ 6-1 lost. He will be trying to keep the Giants from being swept. The Phils will be going out to sweep the Giants for their third straight series sweep.

The Phils continue their winning ways, in spite of a short brawl, as they crush the Giants, 9-2.

In spite of a short brawl in the sixth inning, the Phils continue their present winning ways as they crush the World Champs, 9-2.

The Giants took the lead in the first as, with runners on the corners, and with one man out, Pablo Sandoval hits a sacrifice fly, knocking in Jeff Keppinger, who had earlier walked, then went to third on Carlos Beltran’s single, giving the Giants a 1-0 lead. The Phils tied the game up at one-all in the fourth as, with one man out, Shane Victorino hits a solo home run, his eleventh home run of the season. The Phils then took the lead as, with runners on the corners, and with one man out, Raul Ibanez hits an RBI force out, 4-6, as Chase Utley, who had earlier singled, then went to third on Hunter Pence’s single, scored as Pence, who had just singled, is wiped out at second base for the inning’s second out, giving the Phils a 2-1 lead, as Ibanez beat out the throw back to first. One batter later, the Phils’ took a 4-1 lead as John Mayberry, Jr. hits a two-run home run, his ninth home run of the season, knocking in Ibanez. The Phils then took a 5-1 lead in the fifth as, with one man on, and with one man out, Placido Polanco hits an RBI single, scoring Jimmy Rollins, who had earlier walked, then stole second base, before he is thrown out trying to go to second base to make sure that Rollins did score, 9-2-6, for the inning’s second out. The Giants got a run back in their half of the fifth as Eli Whiteside hits a solo home run, his fourth home run of the year, making it a 5-2 Phils’ lead. The Phils added to their lead in the sixth as, with two men on, and with one man out, Brian Schneider hits an RBI single, scoring Ibanez, who had earlier walked, then stopped at second base on Mayberry’s single, giving the Phils a 6-2 lead, while sending Mayberry, who had just singled, on to second base. Two batters later, after Vance Worley had pop bunt out on an excellent catch near home plate by Whiteside for the inning’s second out, both Schneider and Mayberry moved up a base on Ramon Ramirez’s wild pitch, with Rollins batting. Rollins then gave the Phils an 8-2 lead with an RBI single, scoring both Schneider and Mayberry. After Rollins stole second base, for his second steal of the night, Polanco got on base with an infield single, sending Rollins on to third. The next batter, Victorino, is then hit in the middle of the back by Ramirez, which would lead to both team emptying their benches and their bullpens, and then to a very short brawl, thanks in part to Whitestide tackling Polanco, just as it looked like things were about to cool down. This would lead to Ramirez, Whiteside and Victorino all being thrown out of the game, all now waiting for how hard they will each be punished for their actions. (Personally, I’m hoping that Ramirez and Whiteside will get the worst punishments. I mean: Ramirez, sore loser/man up, dude. Whiteside, this is not the WWF. Victorino, seriously, cool the temper, dude.) The Phils then made it a 9-2 lead in the seventh as Pence hits a lead-off solo home run, his thirteenth home run of the season. That would end up being the final score as David Herndon pitched an easy ninth.

Vance Worley (8-1, 2.35) gets the win as he pitched seven strong innings, as he ignored the fireworks in the sixth inning, giving up two runs on seven hits and a walk, while striking out six. Michael Stutes and David Herndon combine for two scoreless innings, giving up two hits (one hit each), while striking out a batter (Stutes). Jonathan Sanchez (4-6, 4.10) took the lost as he went four and two-thirds innings, giving up five runs on seven hits and two walks, while striking out four. Ramon Ramirez pitched an inning, before he is ejected from the game because of his involvement in the brawl, as he gave up three runs on four hits, a walk and a wild pitch. Jeremy Affeldt pitched an inning and a third, giving up a run on a hit, while he struck out one.  Guillermo Mota and Brian Wilson combine for two scoreless innings, giving up a hit (Wilson) and two walks (one walk each), while striking out three (Mota (1), Wilson (2)) between them.

The Phils had thirteen hits in the ballgame, with Placido Polanco (Singles, RBI), Shane Victorino (Single, Home Run, RBI, before his ejection from the ballgame because of his involvement in the brawl), Hunter Pence (Single, Home Run, RBI) and John Mayberry, Jr. (Single, Home Run, 2 RBIs) all leading the team with two hits each.

The Phils will send to the mound Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 7.71), who is still looking for his first win as he comes off a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on April 25, as he pitched five inning, giving up five runs on eight hits and four walks, as he struck out four, in the Phils’ 8-6 lost. He will be trying to get his first win, while trying to avoid getting into another one inning meltdown. The Mets will counter with Jon Niese (0-1, 3.68), who is coming off a no-decision against the Braves on April 24, as he went five and a third inning, giving up a run on five hits and five walks, while striking out six batters, in the Mets’ 3-1 win.

Cole Hamels allow one to slip out of his control as the Phils lose to their old rival the Giants, 7-3.

Cole Hamels lost control of the ballgame as he gave up six runs in two innings after having had the Giants under control for two plus innings, as the Phils lose to the Giants, 7-3. The Phils have lost their first series since being swept by the Braves in early July. Their lead is now down to five games in the NL East as the Marlins have won their game.

The Giants took the lead in the second as, with a man on base, and with nobody out, Aaron Rowand hits an RBI triple, knocking in Ryan Garko, who had earlier singled, giving the Giants a 1-0 lead. The Phils would tie it up at one-all in the fourth as Jimmy Rollins hits a lead-off home run, his eleventh home run of the season. Four batters later, with a runner on base, and two men out, Jayson Werth hits an infield single on a ground ball to Giants’ second baseman Freddy Sanchez, who made a bad throw to first base for an error, allowing Chase Utley, who had earlier singled, and then stole second to score, giving the Phils a 2-1 lead, while Werth moved up to second on the throw. The Phils made it 3-1 in the fifth as, with a runner on base, Carlos Ruiz hits an RBI single, knocking in Eric Bruntlett, who had earlier doubled. The Giants then came back to tie it up at three-all in their half of the fifth as, with two men on, and two men out, Sanchez hits a two-run double, scoring Giants’ starter Barry Zito, who had earlier singled and had gone to third on Eugenio Velez’s blooped single, and Velez, who had earlier singled. The next batter, Pablo Sandoval, then hit a grounder to first that was scooped up by Ryan Howard that could’ve been an easy out, as Phils’ starter Cole Hamels had beaten Sandoval to the bag, if Howard had given Hamels a low toss. Sadly, Howard made a high toss that went passed Hamels, and allowed Sanchez to score, giving the Giants a 4-3 lead, while Sandoval, who is credited with an infield single, would move on to second on the throwing error. The Giants would then break it open in the sixth as, with runners on second and third and nobody out, Randy Winn hits an RBI single, scoring Rowand, who had earlier singled, and had gone to third on Edgar Renteria’s double, making it a 5-3 Giants’ lead, while sending Renteria on to third. Three batters later, after Winn steals second base, Eli Whiteside is intentionally walked to load the bases, Hamels is replaced on the mound by Chan Ho Park, and pinch hitter Bengie Molina flies out to left for the inning’s first out, Velez makes it a 7-3 Giants’ lead wtih a two-run single, knocking in both Renteria and Winn, while sending Whiteside to third base. That would end up being the final score as the Phils would be unable to recover, going down 1-2-3 in the ninth.

Cole Hamels took the lost, as he pitched five innings plus four batters, giving up six runs, five of which were earned, on ten hits and two walks, while he struck out only two. His record is now 7-6 with a 4.68 ERA. Chan Ho Park pitched an inning, giving up a hit. Ryan Madson and Scott Eyre together pitched two scoreless innings, giving up only a hit (Eyre) and a walk (Madson). Barry Zito got the win, as he pitched six innings, giving up three runs, only two of which were earned, on six hits, while he struck out five. His record is now 7-10 with an ERA of 4.47. Sergio Romo, Brandon Medders, Jeremy Affeldt, who recorded his twenty-third hold and Bob Howry, recorded three scoreless innings, giving up just three hits (Romo (1), Medders (2)), while striking out a batter (Affeldt).

The Phils had nine hits in the game, with Jimmy Rollins and Ben Francisco leading the team with two hits each, with one of Rollins’ two hits being a solo home run. Chase Utley, Jayson Werth, Pedro Feliz, Eric Bruntlett and Carlos Ruiz had the Phils’ other five hits, with Ruiz knocking in the only other Phils run. The Phils hit themselves out of big innings during the entire road trip, mainly by either striking out or hitting the pitcher’s pitch. Hopefully they can correct that during the home stand, which will start tomorrow night against the Rockies, as they have the day off today.
