Lohse Outpitches Former Team

Saturday, June 14, 2008 ·

Kyle Lohse (8-2) went 8 strong innings against his former team, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. He also struck out 3. The Cardinals went on to win 3-2. Ryan Franklin, another former Phillie, pitched a 1-2-3- inning for his 9th save. The last play of the game was a diving catch made by Ryan Ludwick on a ball hit by Geoff Jenkins. The ball bounced before it reached Ludwicks glove but it was ruled a catch. There was no review and the game ended.

Adam Kennedy homered for the Cards in the first, a 2 run shot off of Adam Eaton.

Eaton pitched well too tonight but got no support from the offense that produced a season high 20 runs the night before. He went 6.2 innings, giving up 3 runs on 9 hits and 1 walk. He also struck out 3.

Pat Burrel homered for the Phillies, his 18 of the year. He and Ryan Howard were the only position players to get a hit. Eaton helped his own cause with 2 hits.

The Phillies remained 4 games ahead of the Marlins for the NL East lead. Tomorrow's pitchers are Brett Myers (3-8, 5.34) for the Phillies and Mitchell Boggs (1-0, 3.86) for St. Louis.


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.
