The Phillies lost their sixth consecutive game as they were swept by the Washington Nationals.  On Thursday afternoon, the Nationals beat Kyle Kendrick and the Phillies, 4-2.

Here are some notes from Thursday’s game:

  • Kyle Kendrick surrendered three runs in the fifth inning. Adam LaRoche hit a two-run homer to highlight the inning.  Kendrick went seven full innings allowing four earned runs.  He had some trouble finding the strike zone at times, as he allowed five walks.
  • Doug Fister tossed seven strong innings and did not walk a batter. He gave up two earned runs on four hits.
  • In the seventh inning, John Mayberry Jr. hit his 50th career home run.
  • The loss marks the Phillies’ longest losing streak since they lost eight straight last July. Meanwhile, the Nationals have won five of their last six.
  • The Phillies have lost 11 out of their last 15 games against the Nationals. The Nats outscored the Phillies 19-6 during this three-game series.
  • The Phillies are a National League worst 9-20 since May 5.

The Phillies will head out to Cincinnati for a weekend series against the Reds.

    Ive been watching the other teams feeds the last 8 games.

    At the end of the Mets series they were talking about a run and turning a corner.

    Etc etc
    They promptly go to Wrigley to face the lowly Cubs and lose 3 in a row.

    No Mets fans you took 4 of 5 vs the Phillies.
    It doesn’t count like the no hitter for Beckett,

    You still suck.

    Now the Nationals announcers and fans are all excited.

    What until you beat a major league level team a few times before getting all giddy.

    I am on pins and needles waiting for Jimmy to get that all time Phillie hit record.

    Ironically he was just released today in my fantasy league.

    Go figure.

    I will give the Phillies credit. They are a remarkably bad baseball team. They are bad in every single aspect of the game: hitting, fielding, running, pitching, the mental aspect of the game. Sandberg is making rookie mistakes.

    There’s really nothing that they are doing well right now.

    ‘Fantasy League” games don’t count. (smile) Rollins will be around for a few more years.

    The way the Phillies are playing now as if they are going through the motions suggests they are demoralized. The past weekend series with the Mets at CBP where the Phillies were humiliated may possibly defined that moment when the team completely fallen apart leaving little hopes for the remainder of the season. 9-20 since May 5 and hitting .224 during that time.

    As one of the last holdouts here in the optimist’s corner, I see the calendar and summer is approaching with one third of the games played. With the hopes of Cliff Lee and Cody Asche returning from the DL and possibly Darin Ruff being called up soon plus a heathy Howard and Utley continuing to be productive, there is still precious time in a division with teams tightly bunch together. Obviously, pitching must step up in both starting and bullpen.

    I noted that right hander Aaron Nola is the Phillies choice with their the seventh overall pick in the MLB draft. I hope the team scouts did their homework and we can look forward to seeing him in a Phillies uniform in the very near future. Certainly, the Phillies need all the help they can get in their farm system and be part of next year’s rebuilding project of several years.

    Where do we go from here? I like to be a optimist to but i think this did it.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if they get swept by the Reds. Hard luck Cole draws Cueto tonight, and it doesn’t really matter who’s pitching for the Reds Saturday and Sunday because we have Hernandez and Buchanon going those days. They’ll be coming home 13 games under .500 on a 9 game losing streak to a 2/3s empty stadium.

    For about two years now, I turn the game off once they are down by 3 runs, and RARELY have I missed a comeback. The offense has sucked since 2012. The BP has sucked since 2012. The bench has sucked since 2012. We have one of the highest payrolls in baseball and can’t field a competitive team. How do Ruin and his staff still have a job?!?

      *I turn the game off once they are down by 3 runs,*

      That’s funny. I’ve been using that same “Rule of Three” for a while now, too.
