Win: Jonathan Pettibone (4-3) - 5.2 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 6 K
Loss: Brandon Cumpton (0-1) - 5.2 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 3 K
Save: Jonathan Papelbon (16)
X-Factor: 1B Ryan Howard - Howard broke his 0-for-20 slump by going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Howard's run scored was impressive as he had to score from first on Delmon Young's ninth double of the year. He could use some work on his slide though.
- Tonight was the sixth time since August the Phillies had three or more pitchers record one or fewer outs (they had four pitchers throw 0.1 innings).
- Dom Brown threw out Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer at second base on a beautiful throw from the left field corner.
- Seven different Phillies recorded at least one hit.
- Brown added to his team RBI lead (58) with his sac fly in the sixth inning.
- John Mayberry Jr was picked off at second base in the top of the ninth inning.
- The loss snaps the Pirates' nine-game winning streak.
John Lannan is on the mound Wednesday night at PNC Park as the Phillies face the Pirates at 7:05 pm.
