Finally! Phillies Snap 6 Game Skid

Thursday, June 26, 2008 ·

Kyle Kendrick looked phenomenal as the Phillies beat the A's 4-0, ending a 6 game losing streak. Chase Utley helped his cause with a 4 hit game.

In 8 innings, Kendrick (7-3) only allowed 4 hits and 1 walk. He also struck out 4. JC Romero pitched the 9th to earn the Phillies the shut out. Greg Smith for Oakland got wacked around pretty bad in his 5.2 innings pitched.

Utley looked like he's officially out of his slump with his 4-5 performance. He had a double and triple. Pedro Feliz also added his first triple of the year. Chris Coste also had 2 hits and 2 RBIs. Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins both failed to hit the ball.

The Phillies introduce a bizarre line up tonight with Jayson Werth leading off, Utley batting second, Rollins third, Burrell 4th, and Howard 5th. It earned them the win but I hope it's not a permanent line up.

The Phillies last won Monday, June 16, versus the Red Sox and it took them over a week to win again. In that span, the allowed the Marlins to gain ground but they were able to get a game back, giving them a 2 game advantage on Florida.

Pitching tomorrow is Adam Eaton (2-5, 4.94) for Philadelphia and Rich Harden (4-0, 2.44) for Oakland.


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.
