All three have ERA's above 5.25.If the Phils are going to score runs, they need to do it early the back-end of the Reds bullpen is fierce, especially considering the lefty-heavy middle of the Phillies lineup. Sean Marshall, Manny Parra, and closer Aroldis Chapman all come from the left side. Add in setup man Sam LeCure and the four relievers have struck out 17 and have given up only 2 runs in 20 innings.Batting:The Phils should be able to score some runs this series, and they'll need them because the Reds lineup is full of hitters.

The Phils are unable to take advantage of the fifth straight quailty start by one of their starters, as they lose the opener of their series with the Reds, 4-2.

The Phillies will try for their fifth win in six games on Monday night when Cliff Lee takes the mound hoping to hand the Reds a sixth straight loss. Roy Halladay tossed eight strong innings to earn his 200th career victory and...

Kendrick and Bailey Dazzle in Pitcher's Duel, Scoreless Ballgame Suspended Until 5:30 Tomorrow Due to Rain

Homer Bailey and Kyle Kendrick were nothing short of spectacular tonight. After an hour and twenty minute rain delay in Cincinnati, the two starters squared off, and the duel bagan. Much like last night's ballgame, the Phillies' offense was nowhere to be found. Through EIGHT innings, the Phils had gathered...

2013 Phillies: Déjà Vu or Déjà Voodoo?

Let us examine the latest Phillies performance last night in Cinncinatti: The starting pitching was solid, the offense was mostly absent and the bullpen blew the game in the 8th inning, resulting in a loss. Sound like a familiar scenario? It should; that describes most of the 2012 season. Ugh. Is this Déjà vu or Déjà voodoo? Has someone or something cast a sleepy spell over this...

Phillies start road trip with win in ten innings

Kicking off an important road trip with a win, the Phillies knocked off the very bad Miami Marlins 3-1 behind John Lannan and the bullpen. Lannan pitched 6 innings allowing only 3 hits a run and walking only 1. The bullpen did the rest keeping the Marlins scoreless the rest of the way and closing out the 10th inning Papelbon earned his second save. Ben Revere scored what was the...

Phillies 2, Reds 4: A day when baseball took back seat

Image via Ben Revere on Twitter. There are some days when it just seems as though baseball does not matter much. Yesterday was one of those days. Hours after multiple explosions went off near the finish line at the Boston Marathon, killing three (and rising in all likelihood) and inuring many more, the Phillies opened a three-game road series in Cincinnati, hoping to build off...

Philadelphia Phillies: 2013 ERA for the MLB 5 at game 11

Most staffs typically have a significant drop-off after their 1 and 2, but the Philadelphia Phillies with John Lannan have a solid 5. How do the top west coast teams fare on the bottom rung of their rotations? TAL’S HANDY STATS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the MLB 5 periodically. The number of games played by the Phillies is in the...

Phils Drop Pitcher’s Duel Late to Reds 4-2

On a day filled with sadness for so many, baseball played on. On Jackie Robinson Day, and only a few hours after the horrifying explosions in Boston, the Phillies and Reds’ starters went toe-to-toe in a terrific pitcher’s duel. Unfortunately, the Phillies came up on the losing end of a 4-2 outing to the Reds. THE CATCH To your right is one of the greatest catches I have ever...

It Should Have Been Adams

The Phillies lost a pitchers’ duel on Monday in a very entertaining game that saw Cliff Lee and Bronson Arroyo throw very well and Ben Revere make one of the best catches in team history. Things fell off the rails for the Phillies in the eighth inning, however, when small ball and a defensive miscue broke the 2-2 tie and put the Reds ahead. The Reds’ two runs in the eighth were...

Phillies & Reds Suspended in the 9th Inning

It was a historic outing for Kyle Kendrick. It was an even more historic outing for Homer Bailey. And they’ll both have to wait until Wednesday afternoon to see if it means anything for their team. The Phillies and Reds will resume Tuesday’s game at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, prior to the series finale. The game is scoreless and will begin in the bottom of the ninth with Zack Cozart...
