Phillies take another step toward seller

 

The Phillies lost their third game in four tries since the All-Star break ended, falling to the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

The Phils did not muster much offense outside of Chase Utley’s three-hit night, losing to the Cards by a score of 4-1.

Rookie starting pitcher Jonathan Pettibone pitched a solid, if not spectacular, five innings to take the loss. He surrendered three runs on seven hits in seeing his season record fall to 5-4.

After dropping two of three to the Mets in New York this past weekend, the Phillies needed to get off to a good start in St. Louis. It didn’t happen, and now speculation that general manager Ruben Amaro will look to move his aging chips at the July 31 trade deadline will only increase.

The Cardinals jumped out to the early lead on a fielder’s choice ground ball to second base by Allen Craig in the first inning. Craig, who was 2-for-3 on the night, followed with an RBI single in the seventh.

John Mayberry Jr. had the lone RBI on the night for the Phillies. He stroked a double in the seventh that scored Darin Ruf. Altogether, the Phillies managed seven hits on the night, but never really seemed to threaten St. Louis’ pitchers until they got two runners on in the ninth.

Rookie starter Shelby Miller picked up the win. He is now 10-6 after pitching six scoreless innings Tuesday night.

Edward Mujica picked up his 29th save of the season despite allowing two hits.
