Filthy Penny: Giants 4, Phillies 0

Overshadowed during last night's masterpiece was how inept the offense was for most of the night.  The ineptitude continued tonight, with the Phillies held scoreless for the first eight innings by Brad Penny, and then shut down in the ninth by Jeremy Affeldt, as the Giants topped the Phillies by a score of 4-0.

For the second straight start, J.A. Happ wasn't awful, but fell victim to the longball and took the loss.  Happ surrendered two homers in the sixth inning, to Juan Uribe and former Phillies grit enthusiast Aaron Rowand.

Not much else to say here, except the bats really, really need to get going, please.  Jimmy Rollins, for his part, had two hits.  But otherwise, blech.  The pitchers are starting to hate you guys.
