SAN FRANCISCO — The Phillies' losing streak swelled to six games in a 10-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.
The Phillies were held scoreless on just one single through the first seven innings by Giants lefty Matt Moore, who entered the game with the highest ERA in the National League at 5.71.
The Phillies' offense has been bad all season, but it has been especially bad lately. Over the last nine games, they have scored just 25 runs, an average of 2.8 per game. The Phils are 1-8 in those contests.
The Giants scored three times in the first inning and four times in the eighth when the Phillies' defense fell apart.
The Phillies are 0-11 in the state of California. They were swept in three-game series in Los Angeles, Anaheim and San Diego, and have lost the first two in San Francisco.
The Phils are a season-high 34 games under .500 at 43-77, worst in the majors. They are 19-46 on the road and 6-22 against the NL West.
