Phillies fall short to Giants

The Philadelphia Phillies came into Sunday’s afternoon game with a chance to take the series victory, but failed to do so, losing 5-2 to the San Francisco Giants.

The Phillies got on the board first, after a Chase Utley triple that scored Jimmy Rollins, but only managed to score one more run for the rest of the game. Ben Revere went 3-for-5, and Cody Asche went 3-for-3 with a RBI. Philadelphia finished with nine hits, but again, just two runs.

David Buchanan pitched 6.2 innings and allowed three runs on nine hits. Ken Giles came in for 0.1 innings, and Jake Diekman for one inning. Diekman allowed two runs and one walk.

Giants’ Michael Morse went 3-for-3, Joe Panik went 2-for-4, and Andrew Susac went 2-for-3, along with a RBI.

Tim Lincecum pitched just five innings but allowed seven hits and four walks.

Jerome Williams and the Phillies begin a three-game series with the Seattle Mariners Monday night at Citizens Bank Park.
