The Phils’ bullpen ruins another excellent start by blowing the lead in the bottom of the ninth, as they lose to the Reds, 3-2.

Philadelphia_PhilliesThe Phils’ bullpen blew another lead as they allowed the winning run to cross the plate via a walk-off bases loaded double, as they drop the series to the Reds, losing 3-2.

The Phils took the lead in the top of the first as, with one man on, and with two men out, Maikel Franco hits a two-run home run, his first home run of the season, knocking in Odubel Herrera, who had earlier reached based on an infield single to first, giving the Phils a 2-0 lead. The Reds would get a run back in their half of the first as, with one man out, Eugenio Suarez hits a solo home run, his first home run of the season, making it a 2-1 Phils’ lead. The Phils would keep it a 2-1 lead via excellent pitching from their starter Aaron Nola who would pitch seven strong innings, giving up only one run, via Suarez’s home run, and four hits, while striking out eight, and a 1-2-3 eighth inning from David Hernandez, as he redeemed himself for Monday’s fiasco. But the Reds would threaten in the bottom of the ninth as they loaded up the bases, via a one-out single by Suarez, an infield single to the relief pitcher Dalier Hinojosa by Devin Mesoraco, sending Suarez up to second base, and a single by Jay Bruce, sending Suarez on to third base, while moving pinch-runner Tyler Holt, who was pinch-running for Mesoraco, up to second base, with one man out. The Reds would then walk-off with the victory as Scott Schebler hits a two-run double, knocking in both Suarez and Holt, while sending Bruce over to third base, giving the Reds a 3-2 walk-off win.

Aaron Nola received a no-decision as he threw seven strong innings, giving up just one run on four hits, while striking out eighth. David Hernandez received his first hold of the season as he threw a 1-2-3 inning, striking out a batter. Dalier Hinojosa received his first blown save of the season before taking the lost (0-1, 54.00), as he pitched a third of an inning, giving up two runs on four hits. Brandon Finnegan also received a no-decision as he pitched six strong innings, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk, while striking out nine. Caleb Cotham pitched two scoreless innings, as he gave up two hits. Blake Wood got the win (1-0, 0.00) as he pitched a scoreless inning, walking a batter, while striking out one.

The Phils had five hits in the game, a double by Freddy Galvis, a single by Odubel Herrera, a two-run home run by Maikel Franco, a double by Cameron Rupp and a single by pinch-hitter Ryan Howard. The Phils’ offense also had two walks (Herrera, Darin Ruf) in the game and performed a sacrifice bunt (Cesar Hernandez), while Ruf was caught trying to steal.

The Phils will complete the three game-series today with an afternoon game at the Great American Ball Park.

The Phils starts the 2016 season with the bullpen blowing a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the eighth, before losing the game to the Reds, 6-2.

Philadelphia_PhilliesThe Phils begin the 2016 campaign with their bullpen blowing their first late-inning lead as they give up five runs in the bottom of the eighth, as they lose to the Reds in Cincinnati, 6-2.

The Reds took an early lead in the bottom of the first as, with a man on second, via Zack Cozart’s lead-off double, and with nobody out, Eugenio Suarez hits a ground ball to shortstop Freddy Glavis, who then throws to first, as Cozart heads for third base. The throw eludes first baseman Ryan Howard for a missed catch error, allowing Cozart to score from third base on the error by Howard for the game’s first run, giving the Reds a 1-0 lead, while Suarez would be safe at first on the error. The Phils took the lead in the top of the second as, with one man on, and with two men out, Galvis would hit a two-run home run, his first home run of the season, knocking in Carlos Ruiz, who had started the inning off with a single, giving the Phils a 2-1 lead. It would stay that way as the Phils’ opening day pitcher, Jeremy Hellickson, would pitch six strong innings, giving up an unearned run on three hits, followed by Jeanmar Gomez, who would pitch a scoreless inning. But then the wheel came off in the bottom of the eighth as the Reds loaded up the bases via a lead-off walk by Adam Duvall, a double by Scott Schebler, sending Duvall on to third base, and a walk by Billy Hamilton, and with nobody out, Cozart would hit a sacrifice fly to right for the inning’s first out, scoring Duvall from third base, tying the game up at two-all, while sending Schebler up to third base and Hamilton on to second base, thanks to how deep the ball went. Two batters later, after Suarez is walked to reload the bases, Joey Votto would hit an RBI single, knocking in both Schebler and Hamilton, giving the Reds a 4-2 lead, while moving Suarez up to second base. The Reds then made it a 6-2 lead two batters later, after they had reloaded the bases as Brandon Phillips is hit by the pitch, moving both runners up a base, and with still one man out, as Jay Bruce hits a two-run single, knocking in Suarez and Votto, while Philips would go on to third base, before attempting to score on center fielder Odubel Herrera’s fielding error, but is thrown out at the plate by a throw from Galvis, with catcher Ruiz putting on the tag, for the inning’s second out. That would end up being the final score as J.J. Hoover would come in to pitch the top of the ninth, throwing a 1-2-3 inning, getting Peter Bourjos to ground out for the game’s final out.

Jeremy Hellickson received a no-decision in spite of pitching six strong innings, giving up an unearned run on three hits, while striking out six. Jeanmar Gomez received his first hold of the season as he pitched a 1-2-3 inning, striking out a batter. David Hernandez (0-1, *.**) took the lost as he pitched to just third batters, getting none of them out, as he gave up three runs on a hit and two walks. James Russell committed his first blown save of the season as he pitched a third of an inning, giving up two runs on a hit and a walk. Hector Neris pitched two-thirds of an inning, giving up a hit, while also hitting a batter. Raisel Iglesias also received a no-decision as he pitched six innings, giving up two runs on six hits, while striking out seven. Jumbo Diaz pitched one and a third scoreless innings, striking out a batter. Tony Cingrani pitched a third of an inning, giving up a walk, while striking out a batter. Ross Ohlendorf (1-0, 0.00) got the win as he also pitched a third of an inning, striking out the only batter he’d faced. J.J. Hoover pitched a 1-2-3 inning.

The Phils had six hits in the game, with Cesar Hernandez leading the ballclub with two hits, a single and a double. Maikel Franco followed with a single, Carlos Ruiz with a single, Freddy Galvis with a home run (two RBIs) and the Phils’ starter Jeremy Hellickson with a single. The Phils also had a walk in the game (Odubel Herrera). The defense would perform one double play while committing two errors, a missed catch error by Ryan Howard and a fielding error by Herrera.

After taking yesterday off, the Phils and the Reds will continue their three-game series in Cincinnati with a night game tonight at Great American Ball Park. The game is to begin at 7:30 pm EST. The Phils will send to the mound Aaron Nola (0-0, -.–) who will be starting his first game of 2016, having ended 2015 with a record of 6-2 and an ERA of 3.59, in 13 starts. He will be trying to give the Phils their first victory of 2016, as well as gain his first win of the season. The Reds will counter with Brandon Finnegan (0-0, -.–) who had a record of 5-2 last season, pitching for both the Royals and the Reds, with an ERA of 3.56, in 20 games, four of which were starts. He will also be going for his first win of 2016, as well as trying to give the Reds the series win. The Phils will be trying for their first victory of the young season, as they hope the bullpen won’t blow another late lead.

The Phils spoil a good start by Cliff Lee as they lose the series opener to the Reds, 4-2.

Philadelphia_PhilliesThe 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 Phils and Reds were involved in a pitchers’ due between Phils’ starter Cliff Lee and Reds’ starter Bronson Arroyo for the first six plus innings, as Lee gives up just three hits and a walk in his first six innings, while striking out four, while Arroyo, in his first seven innings of work, would also give up just three hits, while striking out three Phils. The Reds would finally break the 0-0 tie in their half of the seventh as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Joey Votto, who had started the inning off with a single, then stopped at third base on Brandon Phillips’ double, would score on Lee’s wild pitch, giving the Reds a 1-0 lead, while it sends Philips, who had earlier doubled, up to third base. The Reds then took a 2-0 lead as, now with runners on the corners as Jay Bruce walks, and with still one man out, Todd Frazier hits a sacrifice fly to right, scoring Philips. The Phils got Lee off the hook in the top of the eighth as, with one man on, and with two-men out, pinch-hitter Chase Utley hits a two-run home run to center field, his third home run of the season, scoring Dom Brown, who had started the inning off with a single, tying the game up at two-all. The Reds would retake the lead in their half of the eighth as, with the bases loaded, via a lead-off infield single by Derrick Robinson, who then moves up to second base on Shin-Soo Choo’s sacrifice bunt, 1-3, a double by Zack Cozart, as right fielder Laynce Nix overran the ball while trying to make the catch, as Robinson stopped at third base, and an intentional walk to Votto, and with one man out, Phillips hits a two-run single, which was just able to get by second baseman Freddy Galvis, knocking in Robinson and Cozart, giving the Reds a 4-2 lead, while sending Votto up to second base. The Reds then tried to add more after Jay Bruce hits a single, reloading the bases as Votto and Philips both moved up a base, but Mike Adams buckled down as he struck out Frazier looking, for the inning’s second out, before ending the inning by getting Chris Heisey to pop out to Galvis. That would be the final score as Aroldis Chapman recorded his third save of the season by pitching a 1-2-3 ninth.

Cliff Lee received a no-decision as he threw seven innings, giving up two runs on five hits, a walk and a wild pitch, while striking out four.
