Swing and a Miss: Phillies

Something we'll trot out from time to time is the Swing and a Miss series. Maybe after every game, maybe the County Clerk will take up the banner. Anyhow, here's what we have from the Phillies series.

G1: @ Philadelphia

The Phillies collectively (Halladay-Romero-Herndon-Madson-Baez) threw 98 strikes against the Astros in 150 pitches - 65.3%. Below are the per-game swings and misses, with percentage of misses to total pitches in parentheses.

Johnson: 7 (30.4%)
Quintero: 4 (22.2%)
Hall: 3 (18.8%)
Pence: 2 (14.3%)
Myers: 2 (16.7%)
Lee: 1 (8.5%)
Wallace: 1 (7.1%)
Sanchez: 1 (5.3%)

G2 @ Philadelphia

Lee-Baez-Contreras threw 106 strikes out of 155 total pitches (68.4%).

Pence: 4 (28.6%)
Hall: 4 (19.0%)
Bourn: 4 (14.3%)
Johnson: 2 (13.3%)
Michaels: 2 (50%)
Sanchez: 1 (6.3%)
Towles: 1 (5.9%)

G3 @ Philadelphia

Oswalt-Herndon-Kendrick threw 86 of 134 pitches for strikes (64.2%), eight of those were swinging strikes (9.3%)

Quintero: 3 (25%)
Wallace: 3 (15.8%)
Johnson: 1 (9.1%)

So the Astros made better contact against Roy, but overall, the Phillies threw 290 of their 439 pitches for strikes - 66.1%. Forty-eight of these pitches were swinging strikes - 10.9% of total pitches.
