Big Bullpen Problems

Jake DiekmanA few bullpen facts and figures to consider before the Phillies play the Nationals tonight at Citizens Bank Park:

  • The Phillies enter tonight tied for second in baseball with six blown saves.
  • Their 57.1 save percentage and their 34.5 inherited runners scored percentage each ranked 21st.
  • Their 5.07 bullpen ERA ranked 28th.
  • The Phillies had lost a lead or a tie in the seventh inning or later 10 times in 27 games, including a one-run lead in the eighth inning in last night’s 5-3 loss to the Nationals. They lost six of those 10 games.
  • Their 5.17 ERA in the seventh inning or later is 28th.
  • Their 6.33 ERA in the eighth inning is tied for 27th.
