The Phillies have lost 11 straight road games, having been outscored 75-21. All 11 road losses have occurred since the all-star break.
"It is not fun," Rollins said. "The good thing is that it's a good group of guys and we enjoy being around each other."
But that doesn't do much for the win column.
"We just have to learn how to enjoy winning on the field and that hasn't happened," Rollins said.
He says the team remains confident. This stretch, however would test anyone's resolve.
"We go out here every day expecting to win," Rollins said. "We just haven't been able to put together the hits, the pitches, to make the plays that can put us on the right track."
Kratz's knee is OK
Catcher Erik Kratz was replaced Sunday by Carlos Ruiz when Kyle Kendrick was pulled after 41/3 innings. That came one batter after two runners scored on a Chase Utley throwing error. The first of those runners, Jayson Werth, banged into Kratz's knee.
Kratz appeared to be limping and manger Charlie Manuel said he took him out because he had a twisted knee.
After the game, Kratz said there was no reason to worry.
"Everything is fine," Kratz said. "I made the last out the inning before and I was a candidate to replace in a double switch."
Kendrick allowed six runs (four earned) and 11 hits (all singles). He has allowed 14 earned runs in his last three starts, covering 121/3 innings.
"For myself, I haven't been giving us a chance to win lately," Kendrick said.
He said that fatigue is not a problem and that his arm feels good.
