Notes From The Phillies' 2-1 Win Over Colorado

Notes From The Phillies' 2-1 Win Over Colorado

Chatwood befuddled the Phillies, allowing only a two-out single by Andrew Knapp in the fifth inning.

In five May starts, Hellickson is 1-2 with a 7.30 ERA. Valasquez will be looking to bounce back from a 6-3 loss at Pittsburgh where he was charged with five runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.1 frames. It was their major league-best 18th win on the road. Michael Saunders doubled with one out against Scott Oberg, and Tommy Joseph followed that up with a single to score Saunders and hand the Rockies a loss.

Blackmon drove in a pair of runs, increasing his major league-leading RBI total to 42.

Cardinals starters have posted 11 quality starts in their last 12 games, but in typical Coors Field fashion, those numbers can be thrown out the window and this series could quickly turn into a shootout.

Philadelphia Phillies' Odubel Herrera hops after swinging and missing at a strike from Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Jake McGee during the ninth inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, May 24, 2017, in Philadelphia. He pinch hit in the 11th and grounded out.

The Phillies lost their fifth straight game, matching their longest losing streak of the season. It was, however, only their second loss this season in 10 games started by Hellickson. In his last three starts, he has allowed 14 runs (13 earned) in 17 1/3 innings for a 6.75 ERA. RHP Adam Morgan was sent down to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday night.The Phillies and Rockies will not meet again until a three-game series in Colorado from August 4-6, their only other time facing each other this season.The Phillies begin a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, with RHP Aaron Nola (2-1, 3.52 ERA) going against RHP Tim Adleman (2-2, 6.19 ERA).The Rockies return home Friday to start a three-game series against St. Louis. The last time the two teams met, the Phils won on Opening Day before the Reds took two wins of their own to end the series. Story was activated Tuesday but did not play in the Rockies 8-2 win. He was back at shortstop and batted seventh.

Through 44 games, the Phillies are the worst team in baseball.

Maikel Franco and Cameron Rupp returned to the Phillies' starting lineup after each received two consecutive days off. Franco went 1 for 5 while Rupp drew three walks in four plate appearances. Franco is hitting just.221, and Rupp has struggled defensively lately with a couple costly errors and garnered public criticism from pitching coach Bob McClure about the way he calls a game. Thursday's outing will be Rockies starter Tyler Anderson's first time facing the Phillies this season and the third in his career.

Phillies: RHP Vince Velasquez (2-4, 5.98) looks to rebound following a shaky start in his last game where he allowed five earned runs in just 5 1/3 innings.

Anderson, who turned a forgettable April into a strong May, limited the Phillies to four hits through his first six innings.
