Roy was good. But not quite good enough. (AP) Roy Halladay gave ‘em a chance, but the Phillies offense couldn’t get it together once again. The Phillies had an opportunity to sweep the reeling Marlins, but instead were blown out, losing 9-2. THE PEN IS BULL -It’s like playing Russian Roulette. Charlie Manuel has no choice but to call on someone; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t Today in Miami, it did not, as the bullpen allowed six runs in the eighth inning. The culprits: BJ Rosenberg, Raul Vales, and Michael Schwimer. -Schwimer had been on a tear, but in his last few outings has really hit the skids. In his last two outings, Schwimer has allowed five earned in 1 2/3 innings. Prior to that, he’d only given up one run in his last 11 outings. DOC WAS NICE -Halladay gave it his all, going seven strong, but laboring toward the end. He allowed three earned and struck out seven innings. His last four starts have all been solid after hitting a rough patch following the DL stint....

Record-Setting Night Highlighted by Solid Pitching

There was an awful lot going on in last night’s 1-0 Phillies win over the Marlins. And it all began with just the second pitch of the game which Jimmy Rollins sent screaming over the right field wall for the 41st lead-off homer of his career. That turned out to be the only run of the game, which was also a record-setting game for Rollins. He picked up his 1,731st game at shortstop...

Hope is Gone, Phillies spanked by Marlins, 9-2

Make no mistake: They are playing out the string toward an October without postseason baseball in Philadelphia for the first time in six years. The Phillies were trailing by one when the eighth inning began, and Manuel summoned righthander B.J. Rosenberg, who had an 8.53 ERA in six appearances. By the time the inning mercifully ended, Miami had sent 10 men to the plate and scored...

Josh Johnson set to battle Phillies

After snapping a lengthy skid to an NL East rival, the Philadelphia Phillies have a chance for their longest win streak in nearly three weeks. The Phillies, though, might need a better performance from Kyle Kendrick if they want to earn their third straight win Tuesday night against a slumping Miami Marlins lineup. Philadelphia (53-62) ended a five-game losing streak to Miami with...

Pregame: Phillies Start Up Series Against the Brew Crew

  Any series win is a good one at this point but wow, was yesterday's game painful. Save for Halladay who threw a half decent seven innings, the team just looked asleep, highlighted by the talk of the town today that Rollins could have spun the wheels a bit harder. I don't know. I can't get worked up about stuff like that in a lost season. It looked like Pierre was...

Cole Hamels throws his second straight shutout as the Phils defeat the Marlins, 4-0.

Cole Hamels throws his second straight shutout against an NL Eastern Division opponent as the Phils beat the Marlins, 4-0. The Phils took the lead in the third as, with runners on the corners, and with one man out, Chase Utley hits an RBI double, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had earlier singled, then stopped at third base on Juan Pierre’s single, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead,...

Final: Phillies 4, Brewers 7. WP: Livan Hernandez (4-1, 5.06 ERA) LP: Josh Lindblom (2-3, 3.76 ERA) SV: Jim Henderson (3) Cliff Lee had his pitches going for him tonight. At least after the first few innings, anyway, when he gave up three home runs- two of them to 2011 National League MVP Ryan Braun.  He lasted seven and two-thirds innings, allowing 3 runs and just 5 hits, while...
