The Phils wrapped this game up early — after 4 innings, it was 9-0.  Hunter Pence drove in 3 of those runs, including a 2-run homer in the first that got the ball rolling.  For the 13th time this season, Mike Pelfrey took the loss.  He was only able to stick around for the first 3 innings, allowing 5 runs.  Fittingly (assuming this is his last appearance of the season, and let’s hope it is), D.J. Carrasco got shelled as well — the final 4 Philly runs came in his 1 inning of work.  He likely won’t be around next year; Pelfrey probably will.  Roy Halladay himself had a typical game, tossing 6 shutout innings for the win.

3 Up:

-Giants-Eagles: Wins against Philly are nice in any sport.

Dale Thayer: Tossed 2 shutout innings in mop-up duty.

Jason Pridie: A perfect 3-3 day (a home run away from the cycle) with a run scored.

3 Down:

-Mike Pelfrey: Finished the year on a down note, allowing a combined 19 hits and 10 runs in his final 2 starts.  He’s got a LOT of work to do in the offseason.

Willie Harris: Batting third in the lineup, he went 0-4, including 0-2 with RISP.

-19: The amount of hits the Phils’ bats smacked today.

On Deck: Final series of the 2011 season, starting tomorrow.  First pitch scheduled for 7:10 PM.
