Cold Offense Can’t Secure Sweep

OlsenThe Phillies ran into the buzzsaw known as Scott Olsen, losing to the Nationals, 4-1.

Olsen struck out six in 5.2 innings, scattering just six hits. He induced ground outs and escaped jams, including a bases-loaded opportunity for the Phillies that yielded nothing. The Phils only run came from a first-inning home run by Shane Victorino.

Brett Myers couldn’t hold the Nationals as well. He went six innings, giving up two runs on five hits while walking five. One of those walks brought in a run. Myers didn’t allow a home run for the first time this season, however.

The Nationals scored twice off Jack Taschner, who seemed to luck his way into outs more than actually record them.

The Phillies end April with an 11-9 record, and will begin May with a three-game series against the Mets.
