PHOTO: AP The Phillies jumped out to a 2-0 lead that was quickly erased, and found themselves looking at a series loss with the game 5-2 in the 7th. But Kevin Frandsen hit an RBI single and Delmon Young hit a two-run home run to send the game to extras. It took until the 13th for them to score, when heads up baserunning by Chase Utley and Domonic Brown put the Phillies ahead 7-5. Jonathan Papelbon shut the door in the bottom half of the inning and the Phillies took two of three in San Diego. ANOTHER POOR START FOR HAMELS Cole Hamels went six innings, giving up five runs (four earned) and allowing seven hits. He walked two and struck out five. This is now the fifth time that he’s given up four or more earned runs and the eighth in which he’s given up three or more. He raised his ERA by eight points up to 4.58. Luckily, he did not take the loss thanks to Delmon Young‘s eighth inning home run. Hamels has struggled mightily this year and tonight wasn’t the usual start where he pitched better than the box score suggested–he just plain pitched poorly. SOLID BULLPEN After Hamels gave up five runs, the bullpen absolutely shut the Padres offense down. Starting with J.C. Ramirez, then Phillippe Aumont, Jake Diekman, Joe Savery, and finally Jonathan Papelbon, the bullpen collectively threw seven scoreless innings while allowing just one hit. Ramirez and Aumont threw two, and Diekman, Savery, and Papelbon threw one each. Papelbon bounced back with a solid outing and recorded his 15th save on the season after blowing four in the last ten days. Savery recorded the win. BIG NIGHT FOR DELMON Delmon Young, who has been criticized a ton lately, had a double and a home run Wednesday night. He scored twice and drove in two in the top of the eight inning to tie the game at 5-5. However, he wasn’t so good in the field, as he had an error that allowed a run to score. This may mean that we might have to put up with him in the starting lineup for a little longer.
