The summary of the offense won't take long. Since scoring thirteen runs last Friday, the Phillies have scored only nine runs in five games and have not held a lead since the first inning of Saturday's game against the Mets. Jimmy Rollins, John Mayberry Jr. and Erik Kratz each collected two hits in the game. The Phillies only run came courtesy of an Erik Kratz RBI single in the fourth inning. So after yet another terrible offensive display, the Phillies have now dropped five games in a row.
The Phillies will now head to the city of Detroit to face the Tigers. Cole Hamels will get the start as the Phillies desperately look to get back on track.
