Pitching in a steady rain, Jamie allowed 6 runs in 6+ innings. His 2009 ERA now stands at 6.35 . . . which is not good. To make matters worse, Scott Rolen went 2 for 5 tonight with a home run, as the Blue Jays won, 7-1. (Don't get me started on the Rod Barajas solo home run in the 2nd). The Phillies offense struck out 11 times tonight against Jays' starter Scott Richmond. That's right, 11 times.
Why can't the Phils win at home? They're just 13-18 at home and only the lowly Nationals and Rockies have fewer home wins this year in the Majors. Just imagine how much distance they could have right now between themselves and the Mets if they had a half-decent home record. It just doesn't make sense.
