Another miserable game for a Phillies team that is suddenly looking clueless and nearly hopeless both at the plate and on the mound.

The Phils lost their fourth straight last night, and this one was embarrassing as the Giants crushed them 13-0. The Phils got two hits and called on their pen to throw seven innings after Adam Eaton made an early exit. The pen wasn't up to the call. The Phils drop to 26-28 on the season.

Eaton got the start for the Phillies and didn't last long. He went two innings, allowing five runs on six hits and four walks. Three of the hits went for extra-bases, two doubles and a grand slam. He struck out one. His ERA is 6.28

Randy Winn led off the first with a double and was bunted to third. Mark Sweeney flew to center for the second out and the Phils walked Barry Bonds intentionally. Ray Durham singled to right and Victorino threw Winn out at the plate to end the inning. Nice throw.

With one out in the second, Eliezer Alfonzo singled and Omar Vizquel walked. On a two-strike pitch, it looked like Morris bunted at the pitch but it was called a ball. Ruiz threw down to second and Alfonzo was caught and tagged out after a short rundown. Manuel was ejected arguing that Morris should have been out on strikes. He wasn't, and he singled and Winn followed with a walk to load the bases. Fred Lewis hit a grand slam, just barely out, to put the Giants up 4-0. Sweeney walked and Bonds doubled him in to make it 5-0 before Eaton struck out Durham to end the inning.

Rosario started the third and hit Vizquel with two down. Morris followed with a ball off of Rosario's left knee for a single. Rosario got Winn on a ground ball to short to end the frame but would have to leave the game with a bruise on his left knee.

Zagurski started the fourth and hit the leadoff man Fred Lewis before Sweeney followed with a single. Bonds flew to left for the first out, but Durham was next and hit a three-run homer that made it 8-0. Zagurski struck out Pedro Feliz, then struck out Alfonzo on a wild pitch that allowed Alfonzo to go to first. Vizaquel flew to left for the final out.

Condrey started the fifth and gave up a leadoff double to Morris. Winn struck out but Lewis singled Morris to third. Sweeney singled, scoring Morris and moving Lewis to second. 9-0. Bonds walked to load the bases. Durham hit a ball to first for the second out as the Phils got the runner at second. Lewis scored to make it 10-0 with men on first and third. Feliz hit a three-run homer to left. 13-0. Alfonzo grounded to third for the third out.

Condrey pitched the sixth, allowing a two-out walk before getting Lewis on a fly ball to end the frame.

Hernandez pitched the seventh, eighth and ninth, keeping the Giants off the board. He allowed just two singles and struck out two. His ERA dropped to 1.17 on the year after six appearances.

Otherwise it was a miserable day for the Phillies' pen, called on to pitch seven innings as the Phils play their first of 13 without a day off. They allowed eight runs. Condrey throws 45 ptches, Hernandez 33 and Rosario leaves with a knee problem. Hamels pitches tonight and he had a problem with the number of pitches he's thrown already.

The Phillies' lineup against righty Matt Morris went (1) Rollins (2) Victorino (3) Utley (4) Howard (5) Burrell (6) Dobbs (7) Rowand (8) Ruiz. Dobbs plays third against the righty.

The Phils went 1-2-3 in the first and second.

In the third, Ruiz walked with one out and Rosario bunted him to second with the Phils down 5-0. Rollins flew to center to end the inning.

The Phils went 1-2-3 in the fourth. Burrell led off the fifth with a walk, but Dobbs flew to right and Rowand grounded into a double-play to end the inning.

Nunez walked with one out in the sixth. Rollins flew to left for the second out before Victorino got the Phillies' first hit of the game, a single into right that moved Nunez to third. Utley grounded to first for the third out. The Phils were down 13-0.

After a 1-2-3 seventh, Ruiz singled with one out in the eighth. Nunez and Helms went down behind him.

Werth walked with one out in the ninth. Barajas popped to first and Burrell grounded out to the pitcher to end the game.

Two hits for the Phillies in the game after getting three their last time out. No hits through five after getting one hit through eight on Wednesday.

Rollins 0-for-3.

Victorino 1-for-4.

Utley 0-for-3. Howard 0-for-3. Burrell 0-for-3 with a walk.

Dobbs 0-for-3. Rowand 0-for-2. Bourn played center after Rowand left the game for the second time in three games. It was only his fourth appearance there all season, so the Phils may be interested in seeing how he looks out there or it may be a coincidence. Trading Rowand for relief pitching still seems like the best move available to the Phils at this point as things are getting kinda hectic.

Ruiz was the offensive star for the Phils, 1-for-2 with a walk.

Cole Hamels (7-2, 3.74) faces lefty Noah Lowry (5-4, 3.08) tonight.  Hamels will be making his twelfth start of the season.  He started against the Giants on May 6 in San Francisco and got the win, going seven innings and allowing five runs on eight hits and two walks.  Only three of the runs were earned and he struck out nine as he squared off against fellow phenom Tim Lincecum.  He didn't give up a home run in that game but did surrender four doubles.  He's 5-1 in his last six starts.  Hopefully the Phils will start to better control his pitch count and they may have his last time out -- on Sunday against the Braves he threw just 96 pitches, he's thrown fewer than 96 in just one outing this season.  Lowry has faced the Phils once this season, getting the win on May 5.  He got the win, going 6 2/3 innings and holding the Phils to three runs, only one of which was earned, on five hits and a walk.  He's allowed less than a hit an inning, 60 in 64 1/3 innings, and just two home runs all year, but too many walks (31).  Lefties are hitting .182 against him, righties .267.
