It's pretty difficult to do what the Phillies did last night: Walk seven times but not hit or score. They had seven walks, three hits and no runs.
- They're the first team since the Padres in September 2010 to walk at least seven times while mustering three or fewer hits and no runs.
- They went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Domonic Brown was responsible for two of the three hits and Ben Revere had the other. Revere actually lifted balls in the air in consecutive at-bats for just the third time this season.
(Wow, was that a miserable offensive performance or what...)
- The Phillies had two men on in four different innings and failed to score.
- Michael Young grounded into his his 7th double play of the season. No two NL teammates have more GIDPs than Young and Revere (12).
- The Phillies have grounded into 14 double plays with runners in scoring position. No other NL team has more than 11.
- The Phillies gave Cliff Lee nothing, yet again, causing him to question the team's pride after the game in a surprising display of candor from a usually boring quote. The Phils are back to their old tricks, having scored 3 runs in Lee's last 29 innings.
- This is a positive or negative sign, depending on how you look at it: Ryan Howard missed another homer by inches, marking his 9th fly ball to the warning track or wall already this season. He could legitimately have 7 or 8 home runs.
- Laynce Nix timed a deep fly tremendously and got his glove over the wall in right field to rob Drew Stubbs of a home run in the sixth.
- Chase Utley made the prototypical Chase Utley play in the fourth inning, executing a perfect, borderline illegal takeout slide at second to prevent a Delmon Young GIDP. Every mistake Utley makes, people now ask "Why does he get a pass?" Well, he gets a pass because nobody else on this team does that. Period.
