The Phillies jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but that was quickly erased and they found themselves looking at a series loss with the game 5-2 in the 7th. But Kevin Frandsen hit an RBI single and Delmon Young hit a two-run home run to send the game to extras. It took until the 13th for them to score, when heads up baserunning by Chase Utley and Domonic Brown put the Phillies ahead 7-5. Jonathan Papelbon shut the door in the bottom half of the inning and the Phillies took two of three in San Diego.

ANOTHER POOR START FOR HAMELS

Cole Hamels went six innings, giving up five runs (four earned) and allowing seven hits. He walked two and struck out five. This is now the fifth time that he’s given up four or more earned runs and the eighth in which he’s given up three or more. He raised his ERA by eight points up to 4.58. Luckily, he did not take the loss thanks to Delmon Young‘s eighth inning home run.¬†Hamels has struggled mightily this year and tonight wasn’t the usual start where he pitched better than the box score suggested–he just plain pitched poorly.

SOLID BULLPEN

After Hamels gave up five runs, the bullpen absolutely shut the Padres offense down. Starting with J.C. Ramirez, then Phillippe Aumont, Jake Diekman, Joe Savery, and finally Jonathan Papelbon, the bullpen collectively threw seven scoreless innings while allowing just one hit. Ramirez and Aumont threw two, and Diekman, Savery, and Papelbon threw one each. Papelbon bounced back with a solid outing and recorded his 15th save on the season after blowing four in the last ten days. Savery recorded the win.

BIG NIGHT FOR DELMON

Delmon Young, who has been criticized a ton lately, had a double and a home run Wednesday night. He scored twice and drove in two in the top of the eight inning to tie the game at 5-5. However, he wasn’t so good in the field, as he had an error that allowed a run to score. This may mean that we might have to put up with him in the starting lineup for a little longer.

    This is the old Hamels where one thing goes wrong he gets off balanced. Since that bunt from there on was downhill, before then he was cruising.

    Congrats Phils for this hard earned win! Can someone please tell me what is happening to Cole Hamels? We were expecting him to be our bright and shining future ace… what’s happening?

      Bad luck, bad year. It happens to the best although you wouldn’t know that around here. I find it hard to believe that Cole isn’t working around the clock to try to figure this thing out and get back to his usual game. I am sure he is as baffled as anyone. Since he lives in this town year round and is a huge part of the community, he must be aware of the fans disdain.
