Kam Mickolio has replaced Brian Matusz to start the sixth inning.
Matusz is charged with one run and three hits, with no walks and two strikeouts. He threw 57 pitches, 41 strikes.
The Phillies’ 4 through 8 hitters were a combined 0-for-10 with two strikeouts. That group includes Ryan Howard, Jayson Werth, Raul Ibanez and Shane Victorino.
I’ll pass along quotes from Matusz once he’s done running and is made available to the media. He’s one of the best interviews out there, so he won’t skimp on the details of today’s performance.
