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

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their third straight game on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Dodgers 5-3. Their record drops to 11-12.

On The Mound

  • Nick Piveta made his major league debut, allowing just two runs over five innings.
  • Piveta did give up nine hits and walked one. He allowed runs in each of his first two innings before settling in.
  • Jeanmar Gomez took over in the sixth, and immediately destroyed the team’s chances of a rally by allowing a three run homer. Gomez threw two innings.
  • Edubray Ramos pitched a scoreless eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed three runs on six hits.
  • Freddy Galvis drove in the team’s first run in the first inning, giving the club a brief lead.
  • That would be all from the bads until Odubel Herrera hit a two-run homer in the ninth.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-4 with a walk.
  • Daniel Nava started in left, and went 0-1 with three walks.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-4 with three strikeouts. Franco struckout with two men on in the first inning, ending an early threat.
  • Aaron Altherr went 0-3, dropping his average below .300.
  • Michael Saunders went 0-5.
  • Tommy Joseph went 0-4, dropping his average to .179.
  • Cameron Rupp went 3-4 with two doubles.

Final Thoughts

Coming into Los Angeles with a six-game winning streak, the Phils have fallen flat on their faces, suffering a sweep out west.

Jeanmar Gomez may not last in the major leagues much longer. The guy has just completely lost his stuff, and can’t be relied on to get anyone out right now. Allowing the Dodgers to tack on three runs in a situation like that is just a deathblow for an offense that rarely scores more than three runs a game.
