As fans exited Citizens Bank Park Thursday there were few loud boos which would’ve been warranted.

It was more a state of shock at an incredibly awful finish. The 2-1 loss to the visiting Giants was three outs away from being a 1-0 victory. Jonathan Papelbon whose recent performance has drawn the ire of several fans took care of that.

San Francisco (48-59) managed two runs off Papelbon in the ninth without recording an out marking the closer’s sixth blown save of the year. All of Papelbon’s six blown saves have come within his last 13 opportunities. The six blown saves also are tied for second most in the majors.

Papelbon said last weekend in Detroit that he “didn’t sign up for this” regarding the Phillies’ losing this season. He also said the organization needs change from “top to bottom.” The comments earned him little love from the fan base.

Sitting at his locker postgame Papelbon — who did take full blame for Thursday’s loss — didn’t back down from his sentiments.

“I think they speak for themselves” Papelbon said. “Whether I blow a game or whether I save a game whatever is happening within the organization I feel like I’m honest and forthcoming and I’m the same way after games like tonight. I accept things. I don’t shy away from things.

“I go by facts and I stand by what I say” he continued. “I don’t feel like I said anything that wasn’t untrue.”

All wasn’t lost Thursday night at least for 20 minutes. Following Papelbon’s poor effort the Phillies (50-58) loaded the bases in the bottom half of the ninth with no outs. But two harmless fly balls and a groundout to third ensured their second-straight defeat and 10th loss in the last 11 games.
