The midday run of Ben Revere

Ben Revere drove home the game’s only run yesterday, plating Domonic Brown with a two-out single single in the eighth to help the Phils to a 1-0 win over the Braves. It was Revere’s third hit of the game. The Phils only needed one in the game thanks to a fantastic outing by Burnett — Burnett tossed seven scoreless frames in his best start of the young season. The Phillies…

Third time not quite so charming

The Phils fell 8-3 to the Cubs yesterday, dropping a game in which A.J. Burnett walked six in 5 2/3 innings and a huge error by Ben Revere in the sixth inning led to four unearned runs for Chicago. It was far from all bad for the Phils in the series, though, as they took two out of three. Revere, Utley and Brown combined to go 17-for-36 in the set…

Dutch treat, but not for the Phillies

Mario Hollands made his major league debut last night in what seemed like a bit of a weird time, entering in the bottom of the ninth in a tie game to face Shin-Soo Choo, Elvis Andrus and Prince Fielder. Didn’t work out so well for the Phils as Choo and Fielder both walked. Choo scored from second on a walkoff single from Adrian Beltre off of B.J. Rosenberg to give…

Triple threat

It took an unlikely four triples, but the Phils got their third spring win this afternoon, topping Baltimore 6-5. The Phillies hit two triples in the 28 games they played in May in 2013. They also hit two in 26 September games. The Phils scored six early runs. A.J. Burnett pitched well through four, but started the fifth and allowed a walk and a home run to the only two…

Phillie pitchers don’t manage a lot of O’s against the Orioles

One, actually. You know who they might have asked about that? Baltimore pitchers. I’m sure they would be happy to help. Cause when we work together, everybody wins. Everybody didn’t literally win today. Just the Orioles. Baltimore 15, Phillies 4. Burnett allowed four in the third and Gonzalez followed that up by allowing four in the fourth. Those weren’t good moments, but to suggest they were all that went wrong…

Phillies add Burnett but Cole gives some bad news

Your browser does not support iframes. When his GM career is over, Ruben Amaro can hit the poker circuit as he plays his cards close to the vest, and never gives away his hand. Today, the Phillies signed A.J. Burnett to a 1 year deal to pitch for the Phillies, and it gives another great reason not to be so down on this Phillies team. Yes, the Phillies payroll is…
