Offense still struggling

A quick note before we pack it up here at Dodgers Stadium, where the Phillies managed one hit in a 3-0 loss to Hiroki Kuroda and the Dodgers (they are three games behind the Braves in the NL East, but still lead the Giants by 1.5 games in the Wild Card).

A quick note before we pack it up here at Dodgers Stadium, where the Phillies managed one hit in a 3-0 loss to Hiroki Kuroda and the Dodgers (they are three games behind the Braves in the NL East, but still lead the Giants by 1.5 games in the Wild Card).

The Phillies have been shut-out 11 times this season, their most since 1998. The Dodgers lead the NL with 14 shutouts, followed by the Pirates (13), Giants (12), Astros (12) and Reds (12).

Last night's loss was their 44th game scoring fewer than three runs, which ties them with the Dodgers and Giants for fourth-most in the NL. They scored fewer than three runs in 38 games all of last season.

More tomorrow.
