If you had the Phillies coming into Milwaukee and sweeping the team with the NL’s best record in their own yard after losing nine of their last ten, raise your hand?
After being held hitless until the top of the seventh by Matt Garza, the Phillies exploded for seven runs in the eighth and rewarded a fine effort by rookie David Buchanan and led the Phillies to a 9-1 win and a series...

A Note for Today: It’s an afternoon start today as the Brewers and Phillies wrap up the series.
#451740488 / gettyimages.com Yesterday, the Phillies (37-50) were blown out in game one against the Pittsburgh Pirates (46-41). Today, looking to stop the bleeding, Phillies sent rookie, right-hander David Buchanan (4-5 4.82 ERA) to the hill in what might be one of his last starts before being sent back to...
The Phillies were swept in yesterday's day-night doubleheader 10-3 and 5-1, respectively. Falling to 36-45 at the season's mid-way mark, the Phillies are now on pace to lose 90 games. The Phillies' bats failed to show up to the park yesterday, as they mounted just four runs. In the finale...
David Buchanan held up through five innings and the Phillies offense came to life in the 7-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.
-Buchanan went five and got the win, although he walked four batters and was pulled after 94 pitches. But you’ll take that from a fifth starter just filling in for Cliff Lee.
-BJ Rosenberg, not good at filling in. He gave up a two run homer in...
In each of his last starts, David Buchanan had allowed seven, four, and three earned runs. Last night, he allowed just one through a career-high 7 2/3 as the Phillies spotted him an early 4-0 lead and he never looked back. Buchanan would surrender an RBI single to Matt Carpenter in the eighth to make it a 4-1 game but the suddenly lock-down Phillies bullpen put the game away, retiring...
The Cardinals were facing rookie David Buchanan for the first time. Turns out they wouldn’t like to see him again.
Making his sixth career start, Buchanan shut down the Cardinals, only allowing one run on four hits while striking out four in 7.2 innings pitched.
The Cardinals had four hits total, one of them was an extra base hit, by their starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
ST. LOUIS -- Ryan Howard homered and drove in three runs and rookie David Buchanan pitched into the eighth inning Thursday night, sparking the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Howard, a St. Louis native, has hit safely in 22 of 27 regular season games at Busch Stadium. He has 38 RBIs in St. Louis and a .374 batting average.
Howard also has been...
David Buchanan was confused as he was walking out of a conference with Lehigh Valley pitching coach Ray Burris earlier this week.
He thought he was meeting with Burris and IronPigs manager Dave Brundage to go over his most recent start, during which he lasted just one inning and allowed four runs.
"I was just chillin' in the clubhouse and Ray pulled me into the office...
