The Phillies dropped another low-scoring contest today to the [OPPOSING TEAM], finding themselves completely shut down by [AVERAGE MAJOR LEAGUE STARTING PITCHER] despite yet another strong outing from [PHILLIES WELL-COMPENSATED STARTING PITCHER], losing the game by a score of [INTEGER = 3] to [INTEGER = 2]. All on a day when the Phillies learned that [KEY PLAYER] would be unavailable for [INTEGER >/= 1] game due to [FREAK INJURY].
[OPPONENTS' STARTER] held the Phillies to just [INTEGER = 5] hits over [INTEGER >/= 6] innings pitched. The Phillies managed only a few small threats. After [SOMETIMES COMPETENT PHILLIES BATTER] reached first base on a [ONE/NO] out [SINGLE/WALK] in the [INNING >3/<8], the Phillies' soon found the rally quashed after a double play grounder from [MISCAST AND OVERMATCHED UTILITY INFIELDER OR 4TH/5TH OUTFIELDER]. Later, in the [INNING >7]th inning, with a runner on base, [OPPONENTS' STARTER OR LEFTY SPECIALIST] induced a big strikeout of [PHILLIES MIDDLE OF ORDER LEFTY BATTER], effectively ending the Phillies' day offensively.
[PHILLIES ACE] once again pitched well despite receiving no support, allowing just [INTEGER = 2] runs over [INTEGER >/= 7] innings pitched.
The Phillies resume play tomorrow, hoping that the team can muster just enough offensive support to win the game for [OTHER PHILLIES ACE].
