The Philadelphia Phillies ended their recent homestand with an 0-7 record, falling to Arizona on Monday

For the first time since September of 1964, the Phillies went winless on a homestand of six or more games. The 0-7 streak leaves the Phillies 11 games under .500, their worst mark of the season.

The Phillies managed just six hits against four Arizona Diamondbacks pitchers on Monday, falling 3-1 in the finale of their seven-game homestand. Jeremy Hellickson (4-6) allowed all three runs in the first inning, but was able to bounce back and throw seven innings for the Phillies, allowing six hits and no walks.

In the first, an RBI single from Phil Gosselin produced the first run of the game and Mark Lamb followed with his 14th home run of the season to give Arizona the early lead. 

The Phillies only run came in the bottom of the second when Tyler Goeddel doubled home Andres Blanco to make it a 3-1 game.

Arizona starter Shelby Miller went 6 2/3 innings before giving way to Tyler Clippard. Daniel Hudson threw a scoreless eighth before Brad Ziegler came on to record his 15th save. Hector Neris, who has struggled out of the Phillies bullpen recently threw two innings in relief of Hellickson, allowing just one hit and striking out four. Miller (2-6) got the win for the D'backs.

Goeddel finished the day with two hits for Philadelphia.
