Final: Phillies 2, Rockies 6.
WP: Christian Friedrich (5-6, 5.60 ERA)
LP: Cliff Lee (1-6, 3.92 ERA)
Coming off of a much needed break, the Phillies sought to get the unofficial second half of the season off to a right track Friday night in Colorado.
Unfortunately, the offense was only able to score two runs, and the combined struggle from the pitching and bullpen prevented a victory in the series opener.
