Siena’s John Lannan Roughed Up As Phillies Shutout Nationals

Siena graduate John Lannan just can’t seem to beat Philadelphia. 

The Washington Nationals starting pitcher is 1-12 against the Phillies as Wilson Valdez and Jimmy Rollins each drove in two runs and Hunter Pence homered to lead Philadelphia to a 5-0 victory over Washington on Saturday night.

Lannan, who was making his 26th start of the season, allowed five runs (three earned) on seven hits over five-plus innings. Most of the damage the right-hander surrendered came in the sixth inning when the Phillies scored 3 runs – including a solo home run by former Tri-City ValleyCat Hunter Pence. Lannan was finally pulled without recording an out in the inning after throwing 82 pitches. He finished with four walks and one strikeout. 

Lannan is now 8-9 with a 3.61 ERA on the season.

The left-hander has been struggling as of late – he’s got one win in his last five starts. His recent lack of wins can be attributed to the recent control issues he has been dealing with. Lannan has issued 10 walks over his last five outings.
