Notes From The Phillies’ 10-2 Win Over Chicago

The Philadelphia Phillies snapped their three-game losing streak on Monday night, taking down the Cubs 10-2. Their record improves to 12-12.

On The Mound

  • Vince Velasquez picked up his second win of the season, allowing just one run on two hits over five innings.
  • Velasquez finished at 98 pitches after his five frames. He struck out only four and walked three.
  • Edubray Ramos pitched two innings, and allowed one run.
  • Joely Rodridguez pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Pat Neshek mopped up the ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense exploded for 10 runs on 12 hits.
  • Seven of the team’s runs came in the first two innings.
  • Aaron Altherr got things started with an RBI-double. Several batters later, Tommy Joseph hit a three-run homer to make it 4-0.
  • Altherr doubled home two more runs in the second inning, and a base hit from Odubel Herrera drove in a third.
  • The Phils tacked on three more runs in the seventh on homers from Michael Saunders and Freddy Galvis.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 3-5 with a double.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Cameron Rupp caught the game and went 1-4.

Final Thoughts

After a horrible series with the Dodgers, the Phillies bounced back with a rare offensive outburst.

As shaky as the backend of the bullpen has been lately, cruising with an early 7-run lead made this a pretty simple and stress-free game for the staff.

Aaron Altherr has really taken advantage of his opportunity to play every day, and even once Howie Kendrick returns, he’s going to remain in the starting lineup. Kendrick will then likely begin playing first base every day for the struggling Tommy Joseph, giving the lineup a slight boost.
