The Phillies were swept by the San Francisco Giants on the road Sunday afternoon.

The Philadelphia Phillies are continuing to disappoint as they concluded their three game series getting swept. Jake Arrieta’s solo home run in the final game of the series was the only run they scored the entire series at AT&T Park.

Here’s your series recap.

Game 1: Phillies shutout 4-0

Game one of the three-game series didn’t go the way the many anticipated. Nick Pivetta only lasted four innings, and was charged with three earned runs on five hits.

Despite getting six hits in the ballgame, the Phillies failed to score against Giants’ righty Chris Stratton. He pitched six scoreless innings to earn his seventh win of the season. Over his six innings pitched, Stratton struck out seven batters while only walking one.

The Giants pitching staff combined for a total of thirteen strikeouts, while Philadelphia only got eight. Philadelphia finished the game going 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

The San Francisco Giants scored their first run of the game in the first inning on an RBI single by Evan Longoria.

All but one run scored by the Giants were off of RBI singles.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, Hector Neris threw a wild pitch which scored Andrew McCutchen. That’d be all she wrote for game one of the three-game series.
