Phillies' Ken Giles allows two runs vs. Pirates on Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Phillies pitcher Ken Giles gave up two earned runs on two hits while recording just one out in his team's 4-2 win over the Pirates on Thursday.
Giles opened the ninth inning by giving up a single, and the runner was able to score after advancing to second base on a passed ball thanks to a one-out double that chased the reliever from the game in favor of Jonathan Papelbon, who allowed the inherited runner to score but finished off the victory.
"He's still a little bit inconsistent with his control and command," manager Ryne Sandberg said of Giles after the game, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "He's just not throwing the pitches where he wants to on a consistent basis. With his velocity coming back, I think there will be some adjustments there to bare down with those two pitches, and they're two major league pitches."
Giles, who had allowed just one earned run entering play Thursday, owns a 1.72 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings.
Phillies' Ken Giles pitching well despite dip in velocity

|(5/8/15) 100 Miles Giles hasn't been hitting 100 mph on the radar gun.
Phillies reliever Ken Giles, who earned this nickname for his ability to throw a fastball in triple-digits, has seen his velocity dip through the first month of the season. That said, his fastball is still clocking in the mid-90s.
"100 miles per hour is just a luxury thing," Giles said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I'm still 95-96. Who cares? I'm going to be more effective if I learn how to pitch. That's how I get out. Not blowing guys away. It's learning how to pitch."
Giles has been heavily effective this year, posting a 0.73 ERA in 12.1 innings of relief work.

Giles has allowed seven runs in 12 1/3 innings, but only one of those runs have been earned, resulting in a 0.73 ERA. He has 13 strikeouts and eight walks.
Phillies pitcher Ken Giles working on control early in the year
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Phillies pitcher Ken Giles is down a bit on his velocity so far this season, but he is more concerned about his control early in the season, reports Philly.com.
"For me, it feels like the same thing as last year, trying to tighten up everything," he said. "The slider is better than it was last year, and hopefully it will probably even get better as the season goes on. But I mean, [I'm] just trying to tighten up little things here and there."
Manager Ryne Sandberg thinks Giles is on track to figure things out before it's too late.
"In some regards, I think he's right where he was last year at this time in April when we didn't have him," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said this week. "He was working on his mechanics. He was working on tightening up his slider. He was working on fastball command. I think he's on the same page that he was last year at this time."
Phillies' Giles after rough season debut: 'I've got to make adjustments'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Phillies relief pitcher Ken Giles reiterated that he's "physically fine" and that there is "nothing wrong" with him, per MLB.com.
Giles struggled in his season debut Wednesday night against the Red Sox. He entered with a four-run lead, but was pulled with the bases loaded, two outs and a slim two-run advantage.
Giles' fastball sat in the 98-100 mph range in 2014. On Wednesday, he topped at 96 mph.
"He's just been down in his velocity," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "We'll just have to see. He said he feels fine."
Giles acknowledged that he'll make some changes to his approach moving forward.
"You know what? I've just got to make adjustments, and I didn't make adjustments tonight," Giles said. "So I've got to continue doing that."
