Still unable

On October 19, 2010, Matt Cain went seven strong innings against the Phils, backed up by a scoreless eighth from Javier Lopez and a scoreless ninth from Brian Wilson as the Giants topped the Phils 3-0 in game three of the NLCS. It was more of the same last night as San Francisco topped the Phils 2-1 behind more good pitching from Cain, Lopez and Wilson.

Hamels was great in the game for the Phils, pitching into the eighth and holding the Giants to just two runs. Less great was the offense, who managed just one extra-base hit, a double by Martinez, and scored one run, which came with the help of a dropped popup and a bad hop ground ball to first. The top of the order has struggled over the last six games — Rollins and Martinez have combined to go 5-for-48 (.104) with four walks.

Last night the defense wasn’t real good, either. Domonic Brown has produced offensively in recent games, but has been miserable in right. In last night’s game, the Giants led 1-0 in the seventh with runners on first and second and nobody out when Nate Schierholtz lined a ball to right. Brown misplayed it, overrunning it and then diving back the other direction and missing. The ball rolled past him, Schierholtz was given a double and the runner scored from second, giving the Giants their second run of the game on a night they would only need two.

The Phillies are 65-38 on the year after falling to the San Francisco Giants 2-1 last night. The teams have split the first two games of the series.

Hamels got the start for the Phillies and went 7 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk. Four of the hits went for extra-bases, three doubles and a triple. He struck out six.

He set the Giants down in order in the first.

Aubrey Huff led off the second and put a pretty bunt down the first base line. Hamels ran over, scooped the ball with his glove to Howard and Howard bare-handed the ball for the first out. Fantastic plays by both Hamels and Howard on a very good bunt by Huff. Hamels struck Jeff Keppinger and Cody Ross out behind Huff.

Eli Whiteside singled with one out in the third. The pitcher Matt Cain was next and tried to bunt him to second, but struck out trying for the first out. Aaron Rowand hammered a 1-1 pitch into the right field corner with Whiteside racing around to score and put the Giants up 1-0. Rowand took third as Utley cut Brown’s throw from right and went home and was given a triple. Mike Fontenot grounded to second to leave Rowand at third.

Hamels set San Francisco down in order in the fourth.

With one out in the fifth, Schierholtz hit a ball to first that Howard didn’t handle for an error. Hamels struck Whiteside out behind him for the second out and got Cain to ground to short to end the frame.

Pablo Sandoval singled to left with two outs in the sixth, but Hamels got Huff to fly to center for the third out.

Keppinger doubled to center to start the seventh and Ross walked behind him. Schierholtz was next and lined a ball into right that eluded a diving Brown and rolled past him, scoring Keppinger to make it 2-0 and moving Ross to third. Hamels hit Whiteside and the bases were loaded. The pitcher Cain popped to Utley with the runners holding for the first out. Hamels got Rowand to ground into a double-play to keep the Giants from getting any more.

Brown is a butcher out there. Good job by Hamels — that could have been a whole lot worse after the Giants loaded the bases with nobody out.

It was 2-1 when Hamels started the eighth. He got the first two before Huff doubled to right. Lidge took over for Hamels and Brandon Belt ran for Huff at first. Lidge walked Keppinger on a 3-2 pitch in the dirt, putting men on first and second. He got Ross swinging at a high 2-2 pitch to leave the runners stranded.

Lidge wasn’t throwing real hard and didn’t look real good, but he kept San Francisco off the board.

Bastardo struck out Schierholtz and Whiteside as he set the Giants down in order in the ninth.

Second good outing in a row for Bastardo after getting hit hard by the Padres on Saturday.

The pen goes 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Twelve pitches for Bastardo and 11 for Lidge.

The Phillies lineup against righty Matt Cain went (1) Rollins (2) Martinez (3) Utley (4) Howard (5) Victorino (6) Ibanez (7) Brown (8) Ruiz. Tim Lincecum again doesn’t start the game with the flu, replaced this time with Cain. Mayberry on the bench against the righty despite two extra-base hits in game one of the series and a 313/340/667 line in 50 plate appearances in July. I think it was the right decision, I just think it’s unfortunate there’s not a good way to get him at-bats against righties.

The Phils went in order in the first.

Ibanez singled softly to left with two outs in the second and moved to second when Brown followed with a walk. Ruiz grounded to third to end the inning.

The Phillies were down 1-0 when they hit in the third. Martinez doubled to left with two outs, but Utley flew to right to leave him stranded.

Only extra-base hit of the game for the Phils.

Victorino singled with one out in the fourth. Ibanez was next and grounded to second with Victorino moving up to second. Brown struck out swinging 3-2 to leave Victorino stranded.

The Phils went in order in the fifth and again in the sixth.

They were down 2-0 when Victorino led off the seventh with a popup out in front of the plate. Whiteside and Cain both tried to catch the ball with Whiteside knocking it out of Cain’s glove for an error. Victorino had stopped running at first and the ball rolled way away from Cain and Whiteside, but Victorino could only take second. Ibanez popped to short for the first out before Brown hit a ground ball to first that took a bad hop and went off Huff’s glove and into right field for a single. Victorino scored and it was 2-1. Ruiz grounded into a double-play to end the inning.

Way to make the most of a popup out in front of the plate and a ground ball to first.

With Gload still on the mound, Gload hit for Hamels to start the eighth and reached on catcher’s interference. Valdez ran for him at first and lefty Javier Lopez came in to pitch to Rollins. Rollins bunted, but Lopez fielded and threw to second where Valdez was forced for the first out. Martinez flew to right before Rollins stole second. Utley flew to center to leave Rollins at second.

Good idea to bring in a lefty to face Rollins. He came into the game hitting 229/268/314 against lefties for the season.

Brian Wilson got Howard, Victorino and Ibanez in order in the ninth.

Rollins was 0-for-4 in the game and is 1-for-his-last-24.

Martinez 1-for-4 with a double. 2-for-his-last-16 and on-basing .264 for the season. I don’t see him as an ideal two-hitter. He’s on-basing .175 against lefties for the year.

Utley 0-for-4. 286/400/619 in 50 plate appearances since the All-Star break.

Howard 0-for-4. He went 2-for-25 in his first 28 plate appearances after the break, but is 6-for-his-last-18 with four extra-base hits (333/333/778 over 18 plate appearances).

Victorino 1-for-4. 359/457/564 in 47 plate appearances in July. 1-for-7 with a walk in the series so far.

Ibanez 1-for-4. 6-for-his-last-15. He has two walks in 81 plate appearances in July. For the year, he’s walked 22 times in 390 plate appearances, which is about 5.6%. His walk rate for his career is about 8.6%.

Brown 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI. 7-for-his-last-18 with five walks. He’s really scary out in right.

Ruiz was 0-for-3. 333/433/491 so far in July.

Kyle Kendrick (5-4, 3.45) faces righty Tim Lincecum (8-8, 2.90) tonight. Lincecum has allowed one run or less in five or his last six starts, throwing to a 1.66 ERA with a 1.13 ratio over those six outings. Kendrick is 3-2 with a 3.97 ERA and a 1.30 ratio in his nine starts on the year.

Cain and the unable

The Phils have lost game three of the NLCS, shut down by Matt Cain in a game where they looked old, hurt and a little helpless. Only the Phillies know how hurt they are, but they’re not that old and they’re sure not helpless. The team seems to be wound up about as tight as a team can be, like they come into every at-bat intent to demonstrate once and for all that they haven’t lost a thing since 2008. That’s not going to work because it’s not true, but it’s also unnecessary. They are going to be fine if they can just be as good as they are right now.

Hamels pitched well yesterday, but if you know of any pitchers who can get your team a win when they don’t score any runs you need to get in touch with the Phillies as soon as possible. Cody Ross got the scoring started again as his two-out single in the fourth scored Renteria to put the Giants up 1-0. Aubrey Huff followed that with another single that plated Burrell and extended the lead to 2-0. Aaron Rowand led off the fifth with a double and scored with two outs when Freddy Sanchez hit a ball to second that Utley should have handled, making it 3-0. That was all the San Francisco pitchers needed. Matt Cain was awesome, holding the Phils to two singles and three walks over seven innings. Javier Lopez and Brian Wilson backed him up with scoreless frames in the eighth and ninth.

I’m trying hard not to like Cody Ross, but I just can’t do it. That guy is having quite a series.

The Phils trail the Giants two games to one in the NLCS after losing 3-0 yesterday.

Hamels got the start for the Phillies and went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk. One of the hits went for extra-bases, a double. He struck out eight.

He faced a Giants lineup that went (1) Edgar Renteria (SS/R) (2) Freddy Sanchez (2B/R) (3) Buster Posey (C/R) (4) Pat Burrell (LF/R) (5) Cody Ross (RF/R) (6) Aubrey Huff (1B/L) (7) Uribe (3B/R) (8) Rowand (CF/R). Fontenot and Torres to the bench. Renteria at short and leads off with Uribe back in the lineup after missing game two, but now at third. Rowand makes his first start of the series in center with Torres on the bench. Posey moves up to third, with Huff dropped to fifth and Burrell moved up to the cleanup spot.

The Giants had six players on the bench to start the game. Lefties Travis Ishikawa, Mike Fontenot and Nate Schierholtz, switch-hitters Andre Torres and Pablo Sandoval and righty Eli Whiteside.

He threw a 1-2-3 first, getting Renteria to fly to center for the first out, Sanchez on a ground ball to short for the second and Posey on a ground ball to third for the third.

Burrell struck out swinging 1-2 for the first out in the second. Ross grounded to short with the count full for the second. Huff flew to Werth on an 0-1 pitch for the third.

Uribe swung at his first pitch of the third and grounded to short. Rowand struck out swinging 2-2 for the second out. The pitcher Cain struck out swinging 2-2 as well to end the inning.

Hamels got ahead of Renteria to start the fourth, but Renteria lined a 1-2 pitch over the head of Utley and into right for a single. Sanchez bunted Renteria to second with the first out. Posey went down swinging at a 3-2 fastball for the second out. Burrell got a close call on a 2-1 pitch that must have been off the corner, and then walked on the 3-1 offering. It put men on first and second for Ross and Ross did it again, lining a 2-1 pitch into left for a single. Renteria scored easily and Burrell took third with the Giants up 1-0. Huff was next and he hit a ball that went off the tip of the glove of a diving Utley and into right for a single. Burrell scored to make it 2-0 with Ross moving to third. Uribe popped to Utley in short right field to leave the runners stranded.

Rowand led off the fifth and ripped a double into the left field corner. Cain tried to bunt him to third, but struck off bunting a 1-2 pitch foul for the first out. Renteria flew to center on a 2-2 pitch for the second. Sanchez was next and hit a soft liner on a 1-2 pitch right in front of Utley. Utley tried to short hop the ball, but it went off his right arm and rolled away from him. Rowand scored to make it 3-0. The play was originally called an error, but was changed to a hit, giving Sanchez a single and an RBI. Posey struck out swinging at a high 2-2 pitch for the third out.

That’s an error on Utley. Not an easy play, but it would have been a nice one to have. Rowand was running with two outs, but if Utley had even kept the ball in front of him he probably would have had a chance to keep Rowand from scoring.

Hamels struck out Burrell and Ross to start the sixth. Huff popped up to the mound for the third out.

Contreras pitched the seventh after the Giants hit for Hamels in the top of the inning. He got Uribe on a popup in front of the plate that Ruiz handled for the first out and then struck Rowand out swinging 1-2 for the second. The switch-hitter Torres hit for Cain, who had thrown 119 pitches in the game, and grounded back to the mound for the third out.

Contreras was back for the eighth. He got Renteria to pop to short, Sanchez to fly to center and Posey on a pop to Utley taken in shallow right.

Two perfect innings for Contreras, who threw 24 pitches in the game. He has now thrown three perfect innings in the series. I do think it’s a minor victory of sorts that Manuel didn’t use Madson in the game.

The Phillies lineup against righty Matt Cain went (1) Victorino (2) Utley (3) Polanco (4) Howard (5) Werth (6) Rollins (7) Ibanez (8) Ruiz. That’s the same lineup they used in game two against the lefty Sanchez. Rollins stays in the six-hole after the big game two. Utley continues to hit ahead of Polanco with Polanco the unlikely three-hitter.

The Phillies bench had six offensive players to start the game, lefties Brian Schneider, Ross Gload, and Domonic Brown and righties Ben Francisco, Mike Sweeney and Wilson Valdez.

Victorino led off the game and lined to short on a 3-1 pitch. Utley flew to center 2-2 and Polanco struck out looking at a 1-2 fastball.

Howard hit the first pitch of the second inning hard, but Rowand took it on the warning track for the first out. Werth struck out looking 3-2 after he thought he had drawn a walk for the second. Rollins got behind 0-2 and then popped to third 2-2 to set the Phils down.

Ibanez struck out swinging 2-2 for the first out of the third. Ruiz lined a 2-1 pitch into center for the Phils first hit of the game. Hamels took strike one, then bunted foul before striking out swinging 1-2. Victorino was hit by a 1-0 pitch, putting runners on first and second for Utley. Utley got behind 1-2 and grounded to short to end the frame.

The Phils didn’t get a lot of chances to hit with men on in the game, but Utley got one there. Hamels was unable to move Ruiz to second after the one-out single.

Polanco grounded back to the pitcher to start the fourth. Howard blooped a single into left and Werth walked behind him, bringing Rollins to the plate with one out and men on first and second. Rollins flew to left for the second out and Ibanez struck out swinging 0-2 for the third.

Next to last real opportunity for the Phils to do some damage with runners on base. I think there’s a good chance we’ll see Francisco get a start in left tonight with Ibanez 0-for-11 in the series and looking awful.

The Phillies were trailing 2-0 when they hit in the fifth. Ruiz flew to left for the first out and Hamels hit a 2-0 pitch well, but Huff handled it at first for the second. Victorino drew a four pitch walk and stole second as Utley took ball one to make the count 1-1. Utley grounded the next pitch to second for the third out.

Again Utley with a man in scoring position. Not sure what it was about the Phils and hitting ground balls to second in the game, but if you’re reading this you might want to get used to it. The Phils didn’t ground to second at all in the first four innings, but had six ground outs to second and a popup to Sanchez at second in the last five frames.

Polanco and Howard both grounded to second for the first two outs in the sixth with the Phils now down 3-0. Werth flew to Ross in right on an 0-1 pitch for the third out.

Burrell was taken out of the game after striking out in the sixth. Ross moved to left and Schierholtz came in to play right. Cain got Rollins to ground to second for the first out. Ibanez lined to first on a 1-0 pitch for the second. Ruiz was hit on the arm with a 1-2 breaking ball, putting a man on for Hamels. Gload hit for Hamels and drew a walk. It put two men on for Victorino, but Victorino grounded to second on a 3-2 pitch to turn the Phillies away.

Ibanez hit the ball hard that time, just into bad luck.

Lefty Javier Lopez was on the mound for the Giants when the Phillies hit in the eighth. He got Utley to pop to Sanchez, the righty Polanco to ground to third and Howard swinging 1-2.

That’s the second time in the series that Lopez went through Howard and Utley without a peep. In game one he got Utley on a ground ball to second and struck Howard out to start the eighth with the Giants holding on to a 4-3 lead.

Wilson pitched the ninth. Werth struck out swinging 2-2. Rollins blasted a 1-1 pitch off the wall in right for a long single, but Ibanez grounded into a double-play to end the game.

Wilson threw ten pitches in the game and Lopez nine.

Victorino was 0-for-2 in the game with a walk and a stolen base. He’s 2-for-11 in the series.

Utley was 0-for-4, left three men on base and made a critical misplay at second that wasn’t called an error. 1-for-10 in the series with three walks.

Polanco 0-for-4 with a strikeout. 2-for-11 in the series.

Howard 1-for-4 with a strikeout. 4-for-11 with two doubles.

Werth 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. 2-for-9 with three walks and a home run in the series. 0-for-6 in games two and three of the series after going 2-for-3 with a home run in game one.

Rollins 1-for-4. 3-for-11 with a double in the series.

Ibanez was 0-for-4 in the game and struck out twice. 0-for-11 with a walk and five strikeouts in the series. We’ll see what the Phillies do today against the lefty.

Ruiz 1-for-2 with a hit by pitch. 2-for-9 with a home run in the series.

Werth, Howard and Ruiz have solid offensive numbers through the first three games. The other five starters all have an OPS under .700 for the series with Polanco, Utley and Ibanez all under .500. The numbers are pretty miserable for the Giants, too. Ross is 4-for-9 with three home runs and four RBI. By OPS, among the players with more than three plate appearances, their next best player has been Burrell and Burrell has gone 2-for-9 with a double and a walk.

Joe Blanton (9-6, 4.82) faces lefty Madison Bumgarner (7-6, 3.00) tonight in game four. Bumgarner turned 21 in August and was the tenth pick in the 2007 draft. He threw to a 1.18 ERA with a 1.13 ratio over his last starts in the regular season. He made one start against the Braves in the NLDS, allowing two runs in six innings and getting the win at San Francisco topped Atlanta 3-2 in game four. He struggled at home for the season, going 1-3 with a 4.60 ERA at home and 6-3 with a 1.91 ERA on the road. He has never faced the Phillies and no current Phillie has faced him. Blanton will be making his first start since September 29 when he was fantastic, holding the Nats to an unearned run on three hits and three walks over seven innings. He made one start against the Giants this year, which came on August 18. The Phils won that game 8-2 as Blanton allowed a pair of runs over 6 1/3 innings. Both of the runs the Giants scored in the game came on solo homers, one by Torres and one by Burrell. It was Burrell’s third career home run off of Blanton — he’s 3-for-12 with three home runs. Huff 4-for-20 with two doubles. Uribe 1-for-11. Ross 3-for-11 with a double and a home run. Sanchez 2-for-7 with two doubles. Fontenot 2-for-9. Rowand 2-for-4 with two doubles. Torres 1-for-3 with a home run. Posey 1-for-3. Renteria 0-for-3. Sandoval 0-for-6.

Cain able

The Phils got three hits last night and even against the weak-hitting Giants it wasn’t enough. Rudy Seanez, offering a demo of why Manuel wants to pitch guys three and four days in a row rather than use his whole bullpen, allowed a run on four hits in the top of the tenth. A day after the Phils beat San Francisco closer Brian Wilson in extra-innings they went quietly against him in the bottom of the inning.

Brett Myers pitched well for the Phillies, but he needed 121 pitches to get through seven innings. Win or lose, it’s a mistake to let Myers throw that many pitches when the season isn’t on the line, just like it was a mistake to let Hamels go that many last month in Milwaukee. The Phillies lost both of those games.

Finally, reports of life in the bat of Ryan Howard have been greatly exaggerated. Despite opening May with a huge day, Howard has gone 0-for-9 with six strikeouts in his last two games.

The Phillies lost to the San Francisco Giants last night, falling 3-2 in ten innings to drop to 17-14 on the season.

Myers got the start for the Phils and went seven innings, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks. Only one of the hits went for extra-bases, a home run. He struck out a season-high ten.

Myers walked Fred Lewis to start the first. With Eugenio Velez at the plate, Lewis stole second. Coste’s throw beat Lewis, but Bruntlett didn’t get the tag down and didn’t tag Lewis out when Lewis slid past the bag. Velez grounded to short for the first out and Lewis went to third. Randy Winn singled to center and Lewis scored to put the Giants up 1-0. Bengie Molina moved Winn to third with another singled and Aaron Rowand walked to load the bases with one out. Myers got out of it without further damage by striking out John Bowker and Rich Aurillia.

Myers threw 29 pitches in the first inning. The Phils could have prevented a critical run if they had gotten Lewis stealing second.

Pitcher Matt Cain singled to left with one out in the second, but Myers got the next two.

Rowand single with two outs in the third, but Myers picked him off and Rowand was tagged out as Howard threw to Bruntlett to end the frame.

Myers struck out Bowker and Aurillia in a 1-2-3 fourth.

He started the fifth with the game tied at 1-1. With one out Lewis lined a 3-2 pitch out to right, putting San Francisco up 2-1. Velez walked and stole second, but Myers struck out Winn for the second out. Molina hit a ball back to the mound that Myers deflected but didn’t field. Molina had an infield single and Velez went to third. Rowand grounded to third to set the Giants down.

The game was tied at 2-2 when Myers started the sixth. He struck out Bowker and Brian Bocock in a 1-2-3 frame.

He came back with a 1-2-3 seventh.

Durbin started the eighth after 121 pitches for Myers. He got the first two before Rowand drew a walk. Bowker was next and hit a ground ball to Utley’s right. Utley dove towards second to make the play and threw to first. Howard made a nice stretch at first and Bowker was out to end the frame.

Lidge started the ninth inning, pitching for the third straight day and for the second straight day in a non-save situation. Aurillia grounded to short for the first out. Ray Durham hit for Bocock and reached on an infield single up the middle. Utley fielded going towards second base but Durham just beat it out. Durham stole second with Emmanuel Burriss, pinch-hitting for the pitcher Tyler Walker, at the plate. Burriss hit a soft ground ball to third for the second out and Durham moved to third. Lewis grounded softly to first to end the frame.

Seanez started the tenth and got the first out before Winn singled. Winn stole second before Molina hit a ball to left that rolled to the wall for a long single. Winn scored to put the Giants up 3-2. Rowand struck out looking for the second out before Bowker and Aurillia loaded the bases with back-to-back singles. Molina is absurdly slow not to be able to 1) get to second on his single to the wall or 2) score from second on the single into left by Aurillia with two outs. Jose Castillo hit for the pitcher and grounded to short for the third out.

Three innings for the pen in which they allowed a run on five hits, all singles and four allowed by Seanez, and a walk. Lidge threw 14 pitches but was throwing for his third day in a row. Durbin 19, Seanez 21.

Condrey still doesn’t get into the game. The Phillies need to use their whole bullpen even if it means losing a game. Tonight they used Myers too much and Lidge too much and they lost anyway.

The Phillies lineup against righty Matt Cain went (1) Victorino (2) Dobbs (3) Utley (4) Howard (5) Burrell (6) Jenkins (7) Coste (8) Bruntlett. Werth on the bench with Jenkins in right and Victorino in center. Dobbs plays third and hits second, putting lefties 2-3-4 in the order for the Phils. Second start in two games for Coste behind the plate.

With two outs in the first, Utley singled and moved to second on a balk. Howard struck out for the third out.

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

Dobbs struck out to start the fourth. Utley was next and drove a 2-1 pitch out to left-center to tie the game at 1-1. Howard and Burrell struck out behind him.

Jenkins started the fifth and hit the first pitch he saw just out down the line in right. It tied the game at 2-2. Coste and Bruntlett struck out and Myers popped to second to end the inning. Five strikeouts and two home runs allowed in the fourth and fifth for Cain.

The Phils went 1-2-3 in the sixth and again in the seventh.

Coste walked to start the eighth and Ruiz ran for him at first. Cain left the game with a problem with his right hamstring before Bruntlett bunted Ruiz to second against righty Tyler Walker. Werth hit for Durbin and grounded to third for the second out. Victorino flew to Rowand in left-center to end the inning with Ruiz stranded.

Feliz started the ninth and walked on a 3-2 pitch. Utley lined a ball back through the middle, but the pitcher Traschner got a glove on it, deflecting it and slowing it down. Velez took it at second and started a double-play. Howard struck out for the third time in the game.

Brian Wilson was back on the job in the bottom of the tenth to protect a 3-2. Burrell led off and drew a walk. Eaton ran for him. Jenkins hit a double-play ball to short but the Giants only got one. Eaton did a nice job sliding into Velez at second and the relay to first was bad. Ruiz struck out and Bruntlett grounded softly to short on a nice play by Burriss to end the game.

Three hits and two walks in the game for the Phillies.

Victorino was 0-for-4.

Dobbs 0-for-3. The guys who start the game in the one and two spots, Victorino/Werth on Friday and Victorino/Dobbs on Saturday, are 2-for-17 in the last two games.

Utley 2-for-4 with a home run, one of two extra-base hits for the Phils.

Howard 0-for-4 and struck out three times.

Burrell 0-for-3 with a walk.

Jenkins 1-for-4 with a home run, his first extra-base hit since April 17.

Coste was 0-for-2 with a walk. The Giants stole four bases in the game, three with Coste behind the plate.

Bruntlett 0-for-3.

Cole Hamels (3-3, 2.70) faces righty Tim Lincecum (4-1, 1.73) this afternoon. Lincecum has allowed more than two runs in just one of his six appearances on the season, five of which have been starts. Lefties are hitting .290 against him, righties .238. He’s allowed 15 walks in 36 1/3 innings, which is too many, but just one home run. He made two starts against the Phils last year and was hit hard in both of them. May 6 and June 3. Hamels has given the Phillies at least seven innings in each of his six starts on the season. Righties are hitting .197 against him, lefties .216. He was 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA in two starts against the Giants last season. He started the May 6 game against Lincecum and also pitched on June 2.
