The Phillies bats continue to snooze in San Diego, totaling just 2 hits off Jon Garland, including an RBI single by Shane Victorino plating Jayson Werth. But the bigger story is the 6 strong innings by Joe Blanton, amassing only 73 pitches. It’ll be interesting to see how Charlie handles the late innings if it stays close considering how much he’s had to use the pen the past few games.
Werth-Ibanez-Victorino lead off the 7th. Stay tuned for more.
