Phils Come Back to Defeat Brewers, 7-6

The Phillies came back to beat the Brewers in a stunning ninth-inning comeback by a score of 7-6. Starting pitcher Roy Halladay struggled throughout the game, but the Phils pulled off the win in the end. The inning started with a walk by Jimmy Rollins, followed by a single by Juan Pierre, who then stole second.

After a Chase Utley walk, Ryan Howard singled in Rollins and Pierre, which was followed by a Carlos Ruiz single to tie the game. Hunter Pence then walked, and Ty Wigginton hit a sac fly for the walk off.

ROUGH OUTING FOR HALLADAY

Roy Halladay had a rough first inning, as he gave up two runs on back-to-back hits by Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart.

Then, in the fourth inning, he gave up a three-run home run to Carlos Gomez. Overall, he gave up six runs over five innings.

Here’s his final line: 6 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 92 pitches. His season ERA is now over 4.

Halladay just doesn’t look right. His pitches are lacking their “stuff”, and it’s showing. If there is any reason to believe that he needs more time for his shoulder, the Phils should shut him down and let him completely heal up.

GAME NOTES:

Shane Victorino left the game after behind hit in the elbow with a pitch. The official report from the team is left elbow contusion.

Roy Halladay finished with 3 strikeouts, giving him 1,999 for his career. Unless he hits the DL, he’ll get that 2,000th strikeout in his next outing for sure.

Ryan Howard and Chase Utley hit back-to-back homers–the fourth time those two have done so together in their careers. This was the first time that both homers were off of a left-handed pitcher, however.

Hunter Pence is now 2 for his last 22, and as Pat Gallen points out, his value is slipping in a possible trade.

Joe Savery got his first career win.

The Phils take on the Brewers again tomorrow night at 7:05 PM, with Cliff Lee (1-6, 3.72 ERA) facing off against Zack Greinke (9-3, 3.57 ERA).
