- Jeff Manship, recently rejoining the team from the disabled list, recorded the final two outs.
And so once again, the Phillies have been exposed and brought back down to Earth.
Dropping two of three over the weekend to one of the top teams in the division proved that the team’s five-game winning streak meant absolutely nothing, and that they aren’t any closer to turning things around than they’ve been all year long.
Its a little concerning that some of the young arms in the bullpen that have been performing so well have begun to struggle once again.
Justin De Fratus and Mario Hollands are struggling right now.
As mentioned above, De Fratus has given up runs in four of his last six appearances, and today’s three run effort was one of his worst in recent memory.
Hollands has given up four runs on six hits and a walk in his last two appearances while recording only four outs in that same stretch. It should also be noted that Hollands has only appeared in game situations twice since June 28th.
