Notes From The Phillies’ 5-3 Loss To Los Angeles

The Philadelphia Phillies had their six-game winning streak snapped on Friday night, falling to the Dodgers 5-3. Their record drops to 11-10.

On The Mound

  • Jerad Eickhoff wasn’t bad, but didn’t have his best stuff. He gave up five runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.2 innings.
  • Eickhoff was given some rare run support, but gave up the early lead and allowed runs in each of his final four innings of work.
  • Luis Garcia got the final out of the sixth.
  • Mark Leiter made his season debut, tossing a scoreless seventh.
  • Jeanmar Gomez made a rare appearance, striking out two in a clean eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed three runs on seven hits.
  • The Phils got two runs on the board in the third inning on a two-run double from Freddy Galvis.
  • Galvis, who hit second in the order for the second straight game, now has a 10-game hitting streak.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-4 with a single.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-4 with a single. He’s batting just .256.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-3, but did drive in a run.
  • Michael Saunders went 1-4 with three strikeouts.
  • Aaron Altherr went 0-3, ending his hitting streak.
  • Tommy Joseph went 0-4.

Final Thoughts

Rough way to start the road trip for the Phils, who have been playing very well of late.

Jerad Eickhoff had an off night, and he should be able to straighten himself out. He just wasn’t able to pick up any momentum despite getting an early lead. The Dodgers had at least one man reach base on him in every inning, Pete Mackanin probably should have considered lifting him after the fifth.
