Bad Pitching Drops Phils To 2-4

I didn’t watch today’s game against the Reds, as I was instead watching the San Francisco Giants’ AA club — the Connecticut Defenders — finish off the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in a cold, Eastern League contest. Judging by what I’ve seen from today’s Phils game, it seems the Defenders would give our boys a run for their money.

The Phils lost 8-2 as both Brett Myers and Clay Condrey looked bad. It was Myers’ second consecutive poor start; he gave up home runs to Ken Griffey Jr. and Jeff Keppinger to raise his ERA to 6.30. Supposedly Myers was trying to throw breaking junk most of the game; no Brett, just rear back and bring out the heat. That’s why you’re good.

Clay Condrey reverted back to career norms with a horrible sixth inning, giving up four runs and raising his ERA to 9.82. But there was a positive — Brad Lidge got his first action in as a Phillie, striking out Griffey during a 1-2-3 eighth inning.

Pat Burrell and Jimmy Rollins drove in the runs against 24-year-old Edinson Volquez, and Chase Utley continued his fine hitting against Cincinnati, going 2-for-4.
