One Sentence Summary: Phillies pitchers Jerome Williams and Elvis Araujo got knocked around and the Phillies couldn't mount a comeback as the Rockies won, 7-3.
What It Means: Williams has struggled in May and after this game, his ERA for the month is an ugly 7.03. He allowed five runs on eight hits in his five innings of work. Araujo allowed two more runs in his two innings of work.
What Happened: Ryan Howard hit his ninth home run of the year and Chase Utley had two more hits to raise his average to .169. In his last 12 games, Utley is hitting .333 (13 for 39) with five doubles and a triple.
