Outta Here, Outta Here, Outta Here …
If it seems like the Phillies have been giving up a lot of home runs, they have.
Elias Sports Bureau reports the Phillies set a Major League record by allowing at least one home run in each of their first 14 games. The 2001 Milwaukee Brewers held the previous record by allowing at least one home run in their first 13 games.
Ten of 12 Phillies pitchers have allowed a home run this season.
Not to jinx them, but Ryan Madson and Scott Eyre are the only two who haven’t allowed a long ball.
The Phillies have allowed 31 homers this season to lead the majors. The Orioles and Rangers are second in baseball with 27. The closest NL team? The Rockies, who have allowed 22.
