2013 Game Recaps

Struggle

The Phillies were absolutely crushed by the Mets Thursday afternoon. Ethan Martin lasted four innings while giving up three runs, but the bullpen lost control of the game in the later innings. The offense was only able to scrape one run across in the first seven innings (on a sac fly by Darin Ruf), and the Phillies lost 11-3.

STRUGGLING PITCHING

Ethan Martin is struggling. In his last start, he did not make it out of the first inning. Today, he allowed three runs in four innings. And it only got worse from there. He was relieved by Cesar Jimenez, who allowed three more runs in less than two innings. Justin De Fratus then relieved Jimenez, and he proceeded to allow four runs in one inning of work. And just for kicks, J.C. Ramirez gave up a run, too. It was tough to watch. The lone bright spot is that Martin looks like he can really rack up the strikeouts. He had nine today in four innings, which brings his total to 32 in 25.1 IP this year.

QUIET OFFENSE

With the exclusion of the Roger Bernadina home run in the eighth inning, the Phillies offense was REALLY quiet today. Doubles by Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz were the only other extra base hits. The team had seven hits total. They were facing a guy that, in his last appearance as a starter, was annihilated by the Washington Nationals. I would’ve expected more from the Phillies offense today.

UP NEXT:

The Phillies head to Chicago tomorrow for another day game with Roy Halladay and Jeff Samardzija getting the call.
