Phillies SP Aaron Harang unable to hang on to lead Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/27/2015) Phillies starter Aaron Harang was given a five-run lead, but wasn't able to make it last Thursday against the Mets. The veteran right hander wound up allowing five runs on nine hits over six innings. He walked three and did not record a strike out.

The Phillies scored five runs in the bottom of the third inning to grab a 5-0 lead. But Harang sturggled to keep the ball in the park. He gave up a two-run home run to Travis d'Arnaud in the fourth inning. Then he allowed another two-run shot to Yoenis Cespedes and a solo homer to Kelly Johnson to tie the game in the fifth. The Mets went on to win the game 9-5 in 13 innings.

Harang was coming off one of his best starts of the season his last time out when he allowed two runs over seven innings against the Marlins. Still, he ends August going 0-3 with an unsightly 8.04 ERA in five starts.


Phillies SP Aaron Harang posts strong outing vs. Marlins


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Phillies veteran right-hander Aaron Harang broke a string of poor performances with a terrific outing against the Marlins on Saturday. Harang allowed two runs on two hits over seven innings. His command was a little off, as he walked four and struck out three, but he did a good job of limiting the damage to just two runs.

Harang did not factor in the final decision, as the Phillies rallied late to grab the 4-2 win and get Harang off the hook.

Both runs Harang allowed came in the third inning, but he was solid the rest of the way. Harang entered the game with a whopping 10.80 ERA over his previous three starts, so this was a much-needed bounceback for the 37-year-old veteran.

(8/16/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang dropped to 5-14 with a loss to Milwaukee on Sunday. Harang has lost three straight starts and given up 18 runs over 15 innings for a 10.80 ERA over that stretch.

Harang allowed six runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings on Sunday, his shortest outing of the year.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang had one of his worst outings of the season during Monday's 13-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Harang matched his season-high with eight earned runs on 12 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He also struck out four and walked one. Harang surrendered solo home runs to Yasmany Tomas in the fourth inning and Welington Castillo in the fifth.

Harang is 0-2 over his last two starts. He has not produced a quality start in his last nine outings.


Phillies' Aaron Harang suffers 12th loss in defeat to Dodgers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/5/2015) Phillies right-hander Aaron Harang was not sharp in his start against the Dodgers on Wednesday. The veteran Harang allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings. He struggled with his control in this one, as he walked five batters and struck out just one. He threw 104 pitches in his five innings, with 63 going for strikes in the 4-3 loss.

Harang (5-12, 4.11 ERA) got off to a bad start against one of his former clubs. He allowed a three-run home run to Yasiel Puig in the very first inning. Another run scored in the fifth, giving Harang his ninth loss in his past 10 starts.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Fresh off the disabled list, Phillies starter Aaron Harang earned his fifth win of the season in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Braves. Harang was just activated from the DL earlier on Thursday, after missing nearly a month with a foot injury.

On Thursday, Harang limited the Braves to one run on nine hits over five innings. He walked one and struck out three, throwing 62 of his 96 pitches for strikes.

Harang (5-11, 3.97 ERA) gave up an early run in the third inning, but the Phillies were able to rally back in the middle innings to secure the victory.

This was a good return for Harang, who had allowed eight runs on 14 hits in his previous start back on July 1. With the win, Harang snapped a personal eight-game losing streak. He had not won a start since May 14.

Phillies SP Aaron Harang hoping he needs just one rehab start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"Everything feels good," he told the News Journal. "It's a matter of seeing how everything feels (Saturday). ... It's the running aspect, the sprinting and stuff like that."

Phillies SP Aaron Harang struggles against Nationals on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Phillies veteran right-hander Aaron Harang had another sub-par outing on Friday. Harang gave up five runs (four earned) to the Nationals over six innings of work. He walked one and struck out five in the 5-2 defeat.

Harang gave up an early run in the top of the first inning, and then actually settled in to put up zeroes over the next four innings. But he gave up a pair of runs in the fifth, and then served up a two-run home run to Matt den Dekker in the sixth.

Harang (4-10) has now allowed four or more earned runs in each of his five starts this month. Entering June, his ERA was at 2.02. After Friday's performance, it sits at 3.56, and he hasn't picked up a win since May 14.

Phillies P Aaron Harang struggles in loss to Reds


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang was rocked during Tuesday night’s 11-2 loss against the Reds.

Harang gave up seven earned runs in six innings. Four of those runs came in the first inning of the blowout.

The seven earned runs mark a single-high for Harang in a game. He also gave up two walks and struck out four. Most concerning was the fact that the Reds hit four home runs off of him, which was how many home runs he entered the game allowing all year.

Despite the poor performance, Harang now has a 3.04 ERA, though it was 2.45 entering the day.

Harang’s next start is projected for June 15 against the Orioles.


Phillies' Aaron Harang allows six runs in loss vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang endured his worst performance of the season in Thursday's loss, giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits and five walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Reds.

Harang (4-6) didn't fail to complete six innings in any of his first 11 starts of the season, and he allowed more than three runs just once, when the Cardinals scored five runs in six innings off the start in late April. However, the Reds were able to get a run in the first inning, two in the fifth and three more in the sixth to chase Harang from the game.

"I didn't feel as sharp," Harang said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I felt like I was leaving the ball up in the zone and my control wasn't as pinpoint as it had been. You're going to run into those situations. The guys battled back and made it interesting there in the end. They saw that I was battling and really grinding and they got a few hits in key situations. It's just one of those things. You've got to rub it off and just look forward to my next start against them."

Harang owns a 2.45 ERA and 54:20 K:BB ratio in 77 innings. He's slated to face the Reds again on Tuesday, this time in Cincinnati.


Phillies SP Aaron Harang posts quality start, gets tough-luck loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Phillies starter Aaron Harang posted another quality start, but earned a tough-luck loss in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Rockies. Harang went six innings, limiting the Rockies to two runs on four hits.

He struck out seven and did not walk a batter. He did need 109 pitches to make it through the sixth, but it was a solid outing nonetheless.

The only runs to go against Harang came on solo home runs from Nolan Arenado and Michael McKenry. Otherwise, Harang was brilliant yet again. The veteran right-hander has now thrown six straight quality starts, as his ERA actually rose to 2.02 following Saturday's performance.

"That was a quality start for Harang," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said, per MLB.com. "Threw 109 pitches and gave up two runs. He pitched well with men on base. We struggled out of the bullpen with command and leaving pitches up in the zone and gave some runs up. On the offensive side of things we had men left on base and couldn't get the big hit."

He'll look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Giants.


Phillies skipping Severino Gonzalez in weekend series vs. Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) With Thursday's off-day, the Phillies will skip rookie Severino Gonzalez's next turn through the rotation, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. Gonzalez was slated to start Sunday against the Rockies.

The rotation for a three-game series vs. Colorado will be Cole Hamels on Friday, Aaron Harang on Saturday and Jerome Williams on Sunday. 


Phillies P Aaron Harang allows 2 runs in loss to Nationals


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang gave up two earned runs in Sunday afternoon's 4-1 loss to the Nationals. 

Harang went six innings and allowed seven hits. He struck out two batters and walked two others. His ERA is now just 1.93 for the season. 

It was a solid effort in a game where he got only one run of support. Washington's Gio Gonzalez pitched a magnificant game on the other side which contributed to Harang's loss.

"We knew we would be up for a challenge coming in here," Harang said, via MLB.com. "They've been playing us tough all season. Yeah, it stinks to lose a game like that, but obviously they were just a little bit ahead of us."

Harang has now only allowed 14 earned runs in 65 1/3 innings this year. 

Harang's next start is projected for Saturday against the Rockies. 


Phillies' Aaron Harang whiffs seven in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang turned in a quality start but was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night against the Rockies in Coors Field.

Harang ran into some issues early on in his outing. He permitted a two-run triple to Wilin Rosario and a run-scoring single to Nick Hundley in the opening frame for his only damage of the night. He permitted three runs -- none earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out seven over six innings of work. Of his 99 pitches, 59 were strikes.

Harang has not allowed an earned run over his last two starts (14 innings). He will look to stay sharp Sunday at Washington.


Phillies SP Aaron Harang could be a trade candidate


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Right-hander Aaron Harang has been one of the biggest bargains from this past offseason so far in 2015. The Phillies gave Harang a one-year, $5 million contract in January. In return, Harang has given them eight solid starts, pitching to a 2.03 ERA in 53 1/3 innings. He blanked the Pirates through eight innings on Thursday, and has pitched at least six innings in each of his starts this year.

With the Phillies unlikely to contend this season, Harang could be a possible trade chip, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. Harang would be a solid, veteran presence in the rotation for a possible contender, if the Phillies decide to move him this summer.
