The Phillies have lost eight of their last ten with Sunday’s 4-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

Homer Bailey pitched eight innings, allowing just one run.  The Phillies couldn’t get the big hits when they needed, going 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position, and leaving a total of eight men on base.  For the most part, the offense was silented by Bailey.  Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth inning to complete the save.

David Buchanan was tacked with the loss, although he pitched decently. Buchanan pitched six innings, allowing four runs on six hits. All of his trouble came in the fifth inning, when the Reds put up a four-spot.  Homer Bailey helped himself with a two-run single.  Billy Hamilton followed with a two-run bomb that put the Reds up 4-1.  It was all the offense the Reds needed.


*Jimmy Rollins had his 2,230th career hit. He needs five more to pass Mike Schmidt on the Phillies’ all time list.

*Sunday marked the Phillies’ 20th game in 20 days.  They will have a much-needed off day on Monday.  After Monday, the will play 21 games in 20 days.
