Notes From The Phillies’ 4-2 Loss To Washington

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their fourth straight game on Friday night, falling to the Nationals 4-2. Their record drops to 12-16.

On The Mound

  • Nick Pivetta took the loss in his second start of the season, allowing four runs over five innings.
  • Pivetta gave up nine hits and struck out six. He didn’t allow a walk.
  • Pivetta gave up three homers on the night.
  • Jake Thompson, just called up from Triple-A, made his season debut, striking out two in a scoreless sixth.
  • Edubray Ramos gave up a couple of hits and loaded the bases in the seventh, but escaped with no damage.
  • Ramos also worked through the eighth.
  • Hector Neris pitched a scoreless ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed just two rund on eight hits.
  • Both runs came in the seventh inning, off of RBI-doubles from Odubel Herrera and Tommy Joseph.
  • Joseph finished the game 2-4.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-4 with a single.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-4 with a single and a walk.
  • Maikel Franco went 1-5.
  • Michael Saunders went 2-4 with a double.
  • Freddy Galvis went 0-2 with two walks.

Final Thoughts

This was just a rough matchup from the start for the Phils.

Nick Pivetta, making his second start in the majors, just wasn’t ready to matchup against the potent Washington lineup. And Stephen Strasburg was ready to cut through the weak Phillies’ offense.

Its not too late for the Phils to turn around from the freefall they’ve been in, but they’ve got to have more success in this series. They can’t allow themselves to be buried over this week and a half.
