Notes From The Phillies’ 6-5 Loss To Los Angeles

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their second straight game on Saturday night, falling to the Dodgers 6-5. Their record drops to 11-11.

On The Mound

  • Zach Eflin gave the team another excellent start, going seven innings and allowing just two runs on four hits.
  • Eflin was tagged for two solo home runs.
  • Joaquin Benoit pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris suffered a major meltdown in the ninth, giving up four runs to blow the save and take the loss. Neris allowed three homers.

At The Plate

  • The offense generated five runs on 13 hits.
  • Brock Stassi supplied the big blow of the game with a three-run homer.
  • Daniel Nava started in left, going 2-5 and driving in a run.
  • Andrew Knapp caught the game, and went 3-4, driving in a run.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 2-4 with a walk.
  • Freddy Galvis hit out of the two-hole again, going 1-4.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-4 with a double.
  • Maikel Franco went 2-5.
  • Michael Saunders went 1-5.

Final Thoughts

And the closer’s role continues to be an issue.

No excuse for Hector Neris’ pitiful performance. Neris has given up runs in three of his last four outings, and it may be time for Pete Mackanin to consider yet another change. Perhaps Joaquin Benoit returns to the role. Benoit is the veteran and could bring more stability.
