The Philadelphia Phillies were defeated by the Colarado Rockies, 5-2. Rough Seventh Inning for Hamels Cole Hamels pitched well, but was tagged with the loss.  He finished after 7 innings. Hamels cruised through six innings allowing just a home run, but hit a bump in the road during the seventh inning.  The Rockies weren’t completely crushing the ball, but strung a few hits together, including some bloop hits and infield dribblers. Hamels’ final line: 7 innings, 3 runs, 3 hits, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. The Rockies added two runs in the eighth inning as Justin De Fratus gave up two runs in 2/3 of an inning. Offense Woes Continue The Phillies were shut down by Jhoulys Chacin, who almost threw a complete game shut out.  Chacin was an out away from the shut out before Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard drove in a run a piece. The Phillies only squiggled out four hits before the ninth inning.  Chacin had less than 80 pitches entering the ninth.  After Howard’s RBI, Chachin was pulled and Domonic Brown struck out to end the game. Once again, the offense is to blame as they lacked support for Hamels.
