Oh. My. God. That's all I can say. The Phillies haven't scored a run in 23 innings.

Despite a stellar outing by Joe Blanton, the Phillies fell in 12 innings. Blanton pitched 7 scoreless innings allowing just 1 hit. He struck out 7 and walked 2.

In the meantime, the Phillies couldn't score a run to save their lives. Paul Maholm shut out the Phillies in his 7 innings of work. He struck out 10, walked 3 and only allowed 5 hits. The Phillies would be shutout for the second straight game with just 6 hits in today's game.

The Phillies were working on their own shutout until Wes Walrond gave up an RBI double to Steve Pearce in the 12th inning. Freddy Sanchez would follow with an RBI of his own to give the Pirates a 2-0 lead.

Just when you thought the Phillies would comeback, they failed to do so. With 2 on, 1 out in the bottom of the 12th, Chase Utley was up. He smoked a line drive in the gap to left center field. However, a diving catch, and Victorino being doubled off ended the Phillies hopes. Gameover.

Also, some more bad news for Tom Gordon. He may need Tommy John surgery. Perdro Feliz and Rudy Seanez could be back soon.
