A first-inning homer from Ryan Howard and a one-out RBI triple from Ben Revere gave the Phillies all the needed offense in a 5-4 victory over the Braves on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The victory gave the Phillies their second series victory of the season as they closed out a seven-game homestand. The Phillies also got 6 2/3 innings from starting pitcher Jerome Williams, who picked up his second straight win. Williams gave up three runs on eight hits and a pair of walks. He struck out two and is 6-3 with a 3.11 ERA in 13 starts since joining the Phillies last season. Luis Garcia faced one batter and recorded the final out of the seventh inning before turning the game over to Ken Giles for the eighth. Giles faced four hitters, recording a strikeout, to set it up for closer Jonathan Papelbon. Papelbon gave up a pinch-hit homer with one out in the ninth, but recovered to retire two of the next four hitters for the save. GET THE FULL STORY
The Phillies have become an organization that is complacent, behind the times with respect to what their counterparts are doing, and an organization that seems to have no viable business plan. Regardless of how you look at it, all of this occurred during Ruben Amaro's watch. When Pat Gillick left the organization as its general manager, both the Phillies scouting program and player development system had regained respectability, and were producing talent that was usable at the major- league level.
