Hamels Struggles as the Phils Lose Out West
Cole Hamels went 6 innings last night in Arizona, he struck out 7 but gave up 6 runs of 4 home runs. The Phillies go down in the opening game of the series 7-4. JC Romero came in to relieve Hamels and gave up a solo homer to the first batter he faced this season, followed by a walk. That would be it for Romero. Shane Victorino drove 2 runs in, Placido Polanco added another in the loss. Jason Werth scored on a bizzare play as Chris Young dropped a fly ball, Werth was able to clear all the bases and cross home plate on the mistake by Young. Nelson Figueroa and Ian Kennedy the starters for tonight’s game.
