The Funk 2011
The Phillies have won 7 of their last 11 games, despite not scoring more than four runs in any of those games.
Thank goodness for the rotation.
The offense has scored just 32 runs (2.9 runs per game) since they scored 10 runs in Atlanta on April 9. They have hit just .203 with a .278 on-base percentage and a .296 slugging percentage in that span. They have eight doubles, one triple, eight home runs and 29 RBIs. They have walked 37 times and struck out 66 times.
It could be worse. The Phillies went 12 consecutive games last season without scoring more than three runs in a game. Remember that one? It is impossible to forget. In a horrific stretch May 22 – June 4, the Phillies got shut out five times and scored just 17 runs (1.4 runs per game). They hit just .197 with a .277 on-base percentage and a .274 slugging percentage. They walked 38 times and struck out 88 times.
They went 3-9.
