Cole Hamels pitched great on Thursday night, allowing one run on four hits scattered over six innings, and striking out five.

Michael Stutes, however, struggled terribly, surrendering five earned runs over 1/3 of an inning, including a bases clearing triple to ex-Phillie, Shane Victorino.

The sole run that the Phillies were able to muster came from second baseman, Pete Orr, who singled, stole second, and came around to score on  Michael Young's RBI ground out.

On the Mound:  Mike Nesseth tossed a scoreless 1/3 of an inning, allowing one hit, while striking out one ...  and Jeremy Horst finished off the ninth while issuing one hit.

At the Plate:  Ben Revere was hitless in three at bats ... and Carlos Ruiz, a rare sight in the lineup, went 0-3 in his return tonight.

Up Next:  The Phillies will take on the Atlanta Braves on Friday at Bright House Field.  Adam Morgan, who was cut in the spring, gets another chance tomorrow against Braves lefty, Paul Maholm.
