The Adam Eaton of last season reemerged in the desert last night as the
Philadelphia Phillies were defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4.
The Phillies had a 2-1 lead when Eaton unraveled in the fourth inning
giving up 5 runs. His control was not there as he even walked Randy
After starting the season with a 4.12 ERA in his first three starts,
Eaton has a 7.23 ERA in his past four. How long will Charlie Manual
stick with Eaton if this continues? That probably depends on the
progress of Kris Benson. Benson is still on target to be ready for mid
June so it looks like Phillies fans may be riding the Adam Eaton train
for at least 3 or 4 more starts. The key for Manual will be to pull
Eaton early before the Phillies get so far behind that they can not
catch up. It will tax the bullpen, but at least give the Phillies a
chance to win.
The Phillies made a come back in the ninth but after Carlos Ruiz and
Shane Victorino got hits, Eric Bruntlett popped out to end the game
leaving Phillies fans eager for the return of J-Roll.
Rollins played in another rehab game yesterday going 2-4 with a
homerun, single and two walks and will play at least another one for
class A Clearwater before returning to the Phils which now may be for
the Giants series. It is only a matter of days now!
On a side note, Randy Johnson’s win last night tied him with Robin Roberts on the All time win list with 286.
