Yeah, that was the 11th time the Phillies have been shut out.
Thank the stars it wasn’t a no hitter.
The Phillies continue to struggle at the plate. How do these guys
continue to get to get no hit through 3, 4, and 5 innings at a time?
This time it was until the 8th inning. I’ve said it a ton of times this
year, but I never thought this team’s biggest issue was going to be
it’s offense. Monday night saw a lot of first pitch swings but Hiroki
Kuroda pitched very, very well. He stole the spotlight from Halladay, that’s for sure.
The No-no was broken up by Shane Victorino in the 8th when he singled to right. It was the Phillies only hit of the game.
All of a sudden Roy Halladay‘s name is being mentioned with the front runners in the Cy Young award, but if you ask Roy he could care less. Having never played in the post season Roy is only concerned with getting himself a World Series ring. Halladay did not get the start that he wanted on Monday night at Chavez Ravine. The Dodgers pounded the right side of the infield through the first few innings and put a few runs on the board early.
Side Notes -
Barajas – I think he’s hit more homers (9) off the Phillies than he did for the Phillies. You suck Rod.
Bravos – Won again 9-3 over the Mets. The Phillies trail the Braves by 3.
Wild Card – J,A. Happ pitched a 2-hit shut out against the Cards which put them 3 behind the Phillies. The Rockies, who love to come on strong at the end, defeated the Giants and helped the Phils stay atop the W.C. standings.
