Romero Fails to Hold Lead as Phillies Lose

Sunday, May 11, 2008 ·

Giants beat Phillies 4-3

Adam Eaton was rescued in the sixth by Chad Durbin. Durbin entered the game with runners on second and third with no outs. He forced a line drive double play and recorded a strike out to get out of the inning with the Phillies still on top 3-2.

That all changed in the eighth when JC Romero gave up two runs, and the game, to the Giants.

Jimmy Rollins went hitless for the Phillies in five at-bats. Ryan Howard recorded a rare triple, his first of the year. The normal Howard also struck out twice.

The Phillies offense was absent the last two games as they only recorded six hits after a four-hit game yesterday.

Notable Phils:
Eaton - 5IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 4K, 5BB
Rollins - 0-5
Howard - 1-4, 1R, 1RBI, 3B, 2 SO


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
