The Houston Astros continued to have the Phillies number last night in Philly, beating Hamels and the Phils 8-2.Â Miguel Tejada went 4-5 with three runs and an RBI, CarlosLee added tow hits, two runs and an RBI and even former Met Jeff Keppinger got into things going 3-5 with two RBI on the day.Â Yorman Bazardo(1-2) got his first win by lasting 5.2 innings and only allowed two hits and two runs to the heavy hitting Phillies.
Cole Hamels(10-10) dropped back to .500 on the season with a 6.2 inning stinker, allowing nine hits and six runs in this game.Â The offense obviously didn’t help wither as Shane Victorino was the only Philly with two hits and only Chase Utley recorded the only RBI for them.Â Phillies Phandom will have more on the Phillies and their struggles against the Astros.
Jair Jurrjens is keeping the playoff hopes of the Braves alive, with a gem last night in a 4-0 win against the Fish.Â Jurrjens(14-10) went seven innings and allowed just five hits and a walk with no runs, his season ERA is now 2.61, impressive.Â The Braves only had three hits, but had ELEVEN walks to put up their four runs.Â The RBI’s were credited to Nate McLouth, Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Garrett Anderson.Â The Braves Baseball Blog covers the Braves.
ELEVEN walks, that is absolutely insane and you can not expect to win with that.Â Anibal Sanchez(3-8) went five innings and his line was two hits, three runs and EIGHT walks in the game.Â No one in the offense had more than two hits, those went to John Baker and Chris Coghlan as the Marlins flounder down the stretch, check out FishGuts for more.
Ah, the matchup of the week, the last place Nats against the should be last place Mets, the Nats took the first game, 2-1.Â Ross Detwiler(1-6) got his first major league win as he went six innings and allowed just seven hits and one run in the game, congrats.Â Ryan Zimmerman got the Nats on the board in the first with a sacrifice fly and Mike Morse had a solo shot in the sixth that proved to be the game winning run.Â Mike MacDougal got his 17th save of the season with a perfect ninth as well.Â Centerfield Gate has more on the Nationals and many things baseball.
Nelson Figueroa pitched well enough to win yet again, but he does play on the 2009 Mets, so that didn’t happen.Â Figueroa(2-8) got the loss in six innings allowing six hits and two runs, basically just on that home run in this one.Â Fernando Tatis had the only RBI with a single to Center field in the sixth scoring Carlos Beltran, temporarily tying the game.Â The Real Dirty Mets Blog covers this and many other issues the Mets face entering the offseason.
