Blogging about the 5x NL East Champion Phillies

Pitching didn’t show up in Phillies loss

 

Dontrelle Willis and Pat Misch have two things in common today: luck wasn’t on their side.

The two lefties were shelled for a combined eight runs, five earned in their combined 2 2/3 innings of work today. The rest was written in the books as the Phillies dropped to the Houston Astros, 10-3.

Vance Worley made his debut. Hoping to avoid a sophomore slump, Worley wasn’t off to as good a start as the Phillies hoped.

Worley allowed two runs on five hits and a walk without striking out a batter. He threw 40 pitches in his outing.

The Phillies offense was practically non-existent. They were shut out until the 8th inning when Lou Montanez drove in two runs on a double. Hector Luna led off the 9th with a solo home run.
