Padres Vs. Phillies, Game 3 Final Score: Errors, Poor Hitting Lead To Philly's Second Straight Loss To San Diego, 6-1

The Philadelphia Phillies failed to collect its second series win of the season Sunday, as they lost to the San Diego Padres 6-1 at Petco Park. Anthony Bass pitched six innings of one-run ball for the Padres (5-12), who were able to beat the Phillies (7-8) in the final two games of a four-game set to earn a split.

Phillies' starting pitcher Joe Blanton suffered his third loss of the season, as he lasted just six innings after allowing six runs -- three earned -- on seven hits, the same amount that Philly's offensive was able to muster.

Overall, the Phillies went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and twice had runners in scoring position with one out, but wasn't able to drive home a run.

Phildelphia's defense was just as bad as the offense, as it committed three errors, the first allowing two first-inning runs by the Padres.

The Phillies now travel to Phoenix, Az. to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game series that begins on Monday at 9:40 p.m. Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 1.93 ERA) will take the mound for Philly.

Phillies Vs Padres Recap: Worley Fans 11, Phils Win 2-0

The Philadelphia Phillies won their sixth game of the season on Thursday night – a 2-0 victory over the San Diego Padres. Vance Worley pitched seven innings, allowed four hits, three walks, no runs and struck out 11 batters. Then, Chad Qualls and Chad Papelbon came in for the eighth and ninth to slam the door.

Despite the win, the Phillies continued their anemic ways at the plate. They scored only two runs – one on a sacrifice fly and another on a passed ball. They've scored 37 runs this season, which ranks second-to-last in the National League. Fortunately, they've given up an NL-low 34 runs.

Juan Pierre went 2-3 at the plate, including a triple. He also drew a walk. The Phillies lead-off man possesses a trip-slash of .333/.353/.747 this season with three steals. Ideally, a leadoff man would have a higher on base percentage, but Pierre has his highest OBP since 2009.
