This game was about as tough to watch as baseball games come. Undistinguished rookie Jonathan Pettibone shut the Pirates down over his 5 1/3 innings, striking out six Bucs and walking none. The only runs the Pirates managed against him (or anyone on the Phillies' staff) were two solo homers by Pedro Alvarez and Russell Martin. They went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position, including leaving the tying run at second base with one out in the ninth. In fact, three doubles
AJ Burnett, meanwhile, labored mightily through his five innings. His fourth inning was particularly excruciating to watch. He loaded the bases up after the first three hitters in the inning, then took ten pitches to strike Erik Kratz out, then struck Pettibone out on four pitches, then hit Jimmy Rollins in the foot to bring a run in anyway. I didn't have a stopwatch out or anything, but I think the inning took about 10 hours in total. Burnett ended up needing 35 pitches and he technically struck out ...

Jonathan Pettibone’s major league debut was a success in the Phillies 3-2 win.
-Really impressive outing for Jonathan Pettibone. After the first few batters it didn’t look like he’d make it one inning, let alone 5 1/3. The rookie struck out six, did not issue a walk, and allowed only six hits. Two of those hits were solo home runs.

One of the amazing parts of doing Phillies Nation TV is that we don’t always get to use everything we shoot for the show. A few weeks back, we were able to speak with tonight’s starter Jonathan Pettibone regarding his preparation for 2013. The interview is brief, raw, and uncut but hopefully will let folks who may not have heard of Jon before put a face to a name. Enjoy!

(Photo: Frank Klose/Philliedelphia) If you fell asleep before last night's eighth inning, I feel sorry for you because you missed a helluva comeback. To sum things up, the Phillies got runners on base and they scored those runners. Crazy right? Along with compliments of an Erik Kratz three-run bomb, the...
It wasn't too long ago when Jonathan Pettibone's name appeared among the annoyingly titled group they dubbed "baby aces" alongside Jarred Cosart, Trevor May, Julio Rodriguez, and Brody Colvin. Three of them habe been dealt away and one has really struggled the past few seasons. Pettibone is the last man...
The Philadelphia Phillies begin a series with the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight. Jonathan Pettibone will make the start as the Phillies look to win their second series of the 2013 season.
When John Lannan went down with a knee injury last week, there was a lot of speculation of who was going to take his next scheduled start. While many fans including myself would have liked to see Adam Morgan take Lannan’s start it just wasn’t possible giving the way the Ironpigs rotation goes. Another potential roadblock for Morgan is that he is not on the 40 man roster...

On Monday night, Phillies rookie Jonathan Pettibone made his major league debut against the Pirates. He went 5.1 innings and allowed only 2 runs after a fairly shaky start and some good defense. The Phillies offense put up 3 runs for the rookie, but two of those runs came from a wild pitch and a hit batter.
The lack of offense took another turn for the worse on Tuesday night. Cole...
