Familiar Story

 

Here’s something you’ve read before or heard before or seen before…..Hamels pitches well but gets no offensive support and Phillies lose.  Yep, it happened again last night in Miami.

41 times the Phillies have been held scoreless through five innings; 20 times, through eight innings and now, 15 times they’ve been shut out (three times for Cole).  Last night’s offense consisted of seven singles, a Hamels double and one walk. With the loss, Hamels’ career record against Miami fell to 9-14.

Cole is 17-22 since finishing the 2012 season 17-6.  Lack of offense has been consistent these past two seasons.

Number of the Day
52 Times the Phillies have scored two runs or less.

Woeful Wednesdays
Bad news, Phillies are 8-15 on this day.

Good news, Kendrick is starting and he’s 13-3 lifetime vs. the Marlins.

No 10?
Kendrick and Hamels led the staff with nine wins.  KK gets his last chance at 10 tonight; Cole in the season finale on Sunday.

Last time the Phillies didn’t have double-digit wins from a pitcher was 1996.  Curt Schilling.

This Date
September 24, 1911
St. Louis scores in the sixth inning to break rookie RHP Grover Cleveland Alexander’s 41 consecutive scoreless innings streak, a Phillies record that hasn’t been matched or broken.
