The Phillies lost a heartbreaker earlier today to the Rockies. Cole Hamels continued to have issues with the Colorado Rockies. He worked the first five innings of this game and he allowed 7 hits and 4 earned runs as the Rockies dealt him the loss. Joe Blanton followed Hamels in the game and he worked a inning and allowed a earned run. Lefty J.A. Happ followed Blanton and the first batter hit the ball off of his body forcing him to leave the game. With Blanton having worked in this game and Happ getting injured it appears as if veteran righty Pedro Martinez might get the start in Game #3 at Coors Field. The Phillies hit the ball well but they just couldn’t get enough runs to cross the plate to win this game. Shane Victorino was 3 for 5 with a run scored. Ryan Howard (double, run, RBI) and Raul Ibanez (2 RBIs) were each 2 for 4 in this game. Jayson Werth was only 1 for 4 but his hit was a homer in the 8th inning off of Rafael Betancourt. This series is now tied 1-1 as it heads to Coors Field.
