Another game, another loss for Phils' hard-luck hurler Randy Lerch. Lerch pitched six innings against the Giants, giving up five earned runs (three in the fifth), and left the game trailing 5-2. However, Ron Reed gave up four runs in the Giants' eighth inning to put the game out of reach. For Lerch, it would be his ninth loss of the season. The Phils' offense sputtered again, and Ed Whitson pitched the second complete game in a row for the Giants.
