Phils Lose Fourth in a Row

As seen on Phillies Nation.

The Phillies jumped out to a 2-0 lead, however that didn't prevent them from falling to the lowly Baltimore Orioles, 7-2, for their fourth consecutive loss.

In the first inning, Jayson Werth's two out, two run double put the Phillies on the board, but the lead did not last long.

Rookie sensation Matt Wieters responded with a double of his own, tying the game at two in the second inning. Orioles pitcher Rich Hill chipped in, helping his own cause with a run batted in to give the O's the lead.

The second inning was the only inning Antonio Bastardo had trouble with. He rebounded nicely. In the seven innings, he allowed four earned runs on five hits. He hit a batter (which started the rough second inning), however he did not walk anybody and he struck out five.

In the ninth inning, the Orioles blew the game wide open against Jack Taschner, who allowed three earned runs.

The story was the struggling offense that went just 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left ten men on base.
