Phillies Vs. Giants Final Score: Philadelphia Loses Opener 7-2

The Philadelphia Phillies lost to the San Francisco Giants by a final score of 7-2 Friday night, losing the opening game of the three game series. Phillies hitters were unable to find much success against Tim Lincecum, getting five hits and two runs in seven innings while being struck out six times.

Vance Worley started for Philadelphia and appeared to be handling things until the top of the sixth inning. After two singles to open the inning Worley walked the bases full. Pablo Sandoval knocked in one run with a sacrifice fly and Worley walked the next man to load the bases again. Brandon Crawford took full advantage of that mistake, sending a ball over the right field wall to make it 6-1 San Francisco. Crawford picked up another RBI on a single in the eighth, but aside from a Ryan Howard solo home run in the bottom of the sixth Philadelphia didn't have an answer.

Philadelphia drops to 41-53 with the loss. They'll look to rebound in Game 2 of the series, scheduled for Saturday afternoon at 4:05 p.m. ET.
