MLB.com Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki provides the numbers:

39,475 is still a fine total and one that most organizations would be ecstatic about, but this was on a Saturday night and it was only the Phillies’ second home game. So it’s easy to imagine the situation worsening.

The Phillies will carry a 2-3 record into Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Royals.
