Since pitching in general and starting pitching in particular were the chief concerns for this edition of the Phillies entering the 2010 campaign, it is more than a bit disconcerting to see them drop two games in which the starters pitched very well, especially against teams with losing records. The truth is, though, they lost because they didn't hit and that is a scenario unlikely to occur with any regularity.
The Phils had their chances both nights but couldn't capitalize. Roy Halladay only yielded two runs in nine innings and Jamie Moyer went seven strong innings allowing only two runs. The Phils scored a lone run each night.
When they get everyone in sync they are going to win a lot more games than they lose. They might start as early as today.
