Phillies-Padres Game Thread 4/20/12

Some runs are better than no runs. That’s what we told ourselves, at least, as the Phillies took the first game of their four-game set with the Padres last night. Vance Worley was phenomenal, striking out 11 batters over seven innings, and the bullpen was able to preserve the shut-out. It marked the third game in a row that the Phillies had scored two runs or fewer, and the eighth out of 13 games. The Phillies hope that changes tonight against Padres starter Edinson Volquez, who has walked 12 in 17 innings to start the season. Cole Hamels makes the start for the Phillies in his home town of San Diego.
