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.
