Phillies End Disastrous Month of May With Fifth Straight Loss Dropping Them 12 ½ Back

Not enough offense, a defensive miscue and a longball against the bullpen conspired against the Phils as they suffered a 7-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants in 11 innings at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday night.

The Giants scored three times in the 11th against reliever Andrew Bellatti to break a 4-4 tie. Donovan Walton had an RBI double and Joc Pederson a two-run homer in the inning.

The Philllies have lost five in a row to fall to 21-29 on the season and they arrive in June trailing the first-place New York Mets by 12 ½ games in the NL East.

The extra inning started with a man on third. Familia induced a hard-hit ground ball to first base by Pederson. Rhys Hoskins fielded the ball deep behind the bag and delivered a throw to Familia but the pitcher was not only late getting to the bag, he dropped the throw allowing Wilmer Flores to score from second.
