Ty Blach tosses shutout, Giants rout Phillies 10-0

MGN Online

Ty Blach tossed his first career shutout and became the first pitcher in eight years to walk three times, Denard Span had five hits and the San Francisco Giants routed the skidding Philadelphia Phillies 10-0 on Friday night.

Blach (4-2) scattered seven hits, struck out four and didn't walk a batter to win his fourth consecutive start.

Eduardo Nunez added three hits and three RBIs for the Giants, who snapped a three-game losing streak. They had a season high in runs by the sixth inning and tied a season best with 15 hits.

Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff (0-6) gave up five runs -- four earned -- and six hits, walking five in 2 2/3 innings, his shortest career outing. Eickhoff was Philadelphia's most consistent pitcher last season, but has struggled this year.

The Phillies (17-35) have lost five in a row and 26 of 32. They have the worst record in the majors.

The Giants scored two runs in each of the first two innings. Brandon Crawford had a pair of sacrifice flies, and Nunez ripped a two-run double in a four-run sixth.

Blach walked his first three times up and struck out his next three. He worked a 3-2 count in his fourth plate appearance before hitting a foul ball and taking a third strike. He went down swinging in the eighth and ninth.

Colorado's Aaron Cook was the last big league pitcher to draw three walks against Milwaukee on Oct. 1, 2009.
