The don't have much. David Wright is awesome (.382/1.077). Daniel Murphy and Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit for average. Other than that, they scrape together runs any which way they can.
ERA - 4.33 (25th)
WHIP - 1.37 (24th)
BAA - .263 (25th)
Phils luckily miss Darth Santana and Knuckle-ballin' Dickey this series. Niese is okay, but nothing special. Gee gets hit around, and Hefner has a 6.17 ERA so he's likely to pitch 7 innings of 1 run ball against the Phils.
The Phillies have scored only 4 less runs than the Mets this season (204 to 200), and have allowed 28 fewer runs (223 to 195), so how the hell is it that they have such a better record? Hmm...
Phils take 2 of 3, with the loss coming from another Blanton blowup. Very much looking forward to the Lee-Gee matchup, because of its rhyme-ability.
