There aren’t too many complaints about the Phillies’ pitching of late. The starting pitchers and bullpen have dazzled hitters over the past couple of weeks. Jamie Moyer continued his success against the Florida Marlins, but unfortunately wasn’t perfect.
Moyer limited the Marlins to just one run on four hits over six innings of work. He struck out two.
The lone run came off the bat of Ronnie Paulino, who singled on a ground ball to right field, bringing in Hanley Ramirez. The sixth inning run broke the tie, but the Phillies were never able to produce runs offensively.
Anibal Sanchez limited the Phillies to just three hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out seven. The Phillies did not have any luck against the Florida bullpen either.
The Phillies left eight men on base, and were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. The 1-0 loss makes it the fifth time the Phillies have been shutout in the last eight games.
The Phillies managed to take two out of three from the Marlins, but they are still lost offensively. The Phillies despertely need to find their bats.
