Notes From The Phillies’ 6-5 Win Over Washington

The Philadelphia Phillies snapped their five-game losing streak on Sunday afternoon, taking down the Nationals 6-5. Their record improves to 13-17.

On The Mound

  • Jeremy Hellickson turned in another disappointing start, failing to make it out of the fifth inning.
  • Hellickson only gave up three runs, but managed just 4.2 frames of work.
  • Jake Thompson took over for Hellickson and got the final out in the fifth. Thompson returned to pitch a scoreless sixth but allowed two runs in the seventh.
  • Pat Neshek recorded the final out of the seventh, and came back to pitch a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris pitched two scoreless innings and earned the win.

At The Plate

  • The offense generated six runs on 11 hits.
  • Freddy Galvis got the scoring started with a two-run double in the fourth.
  • Down 5-2 in the eighth, Aaron Altherr hit a pinch-hit three-run homer to tie things up.
  • In the 10th inning, Galvis knocked in the winning run with a sacrifice fly.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-5 with a single.
  • Daniel Nava started in left and went 1-5 with a single.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-5 with a double.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-3.
  • Michael Saunders went 1-3 with a walk.
  • Andres Blanco entered as a replacement for Franco at third, and went 1-2 with a walk.

Final Thoughts

The Phils finally snapped their losing streak, and managed to salvage a game from the weekend series with the Nationals.

It came on a day where Washington decided to rest both Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, otherwise the Phils may not have been as fortunate.

  1. Phillies need to stop playing and bring up Rhys Hoskins

    Alfaro is close but still needs a little while

    JP cant hit shit. lol

  2. Hoskins looks ready for sure, but they are still not in a hurry. With the bullpen, they are gonna have trouble completing at all, They are gonna wait until June or later for most of these guys and maybe longer for Alfaro.

    • its silly. when guys are ready they should be playing. guy should get his feet wet as early as possible if he is dominating little league consistently like he is and has been. no sense on a team like this to prolong anything

      • Still gets 3 months of the season and they want to give Joseph a long look before they let him go. You may not like that, but they don’t seem to be ready to give up on him yet. That means that Hoskins wouldn’t get regular ABs which doesn’t do him any good.
