The Phillies finished May 12-16 after yesterday’s blowout 11-1 by the Reds.
That left them with a 25-29 record and tied with the Marlins in third place in NL East, five games out.
Vince Velasquez had a 2.30 ERA in six starts since he joined the rotation last month, but he allowed six runs in three innings against the Reds.
“It’s tough, man,” Velasquez said. “It’s a tough feeling all around. We’re just trying to find some light at the end of the tunnel.”
“Something is going to happen,” Rhys Hoskins said. “Some big moment is going to happen. It’s kind of just going to click, because that’s usually how it goes. So, frustrated for sure. But you know, we’re still working our butts off. And it’s going to change.”
“It’s not early. It’s not,” Girardi said.
