Notes From The Phillies’ 11-6 Loss to Seattle

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their second straight game on Wednesday afternoon, falling to the Mariners 11-6. Their record drops to 13-19.

On The Mound

  • Zach Eflin lasted six innings, allowing three runs on nine hits and a walk.
  • Eflin struck out five, and gave up a homer.
  • Joaquin Benoit checked in for the seventh inning, and proceeded to hand Seattle the game. Benoit had a disasterous appearance, recording just one out while allowing five runs on three hits and three walks.
  • Edubray Ramos came on and got the final two outs of the inning.
  • Jake Thompson mopped up the final two innings, and got lit up for three runs in the eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed six runs on 11 hits.
  • Once again, Aaron Altherr supplied the team’s big blow, hitting another three-run homer to tie the game in the third inning. Altherr hit another solo shot in the ninth. He now leads the team with seven homers.
  • Tommy Joseph went 3-5 with a double and a solo homer in the ninth.
  • Odubel Herrera hit out of the two-hole and went 1-5 with a double.
  • Michael Saunders went 0-4 out of the cleanup hole.
  • Andres Blanco went 1-5 in a rare start at third.
  • Freddy Galvis went 1-5, driving in a run in the eighth.
  • Andrew Knapp caught the game and went 1-2 with two walks.

Final Thoughts

Another day, another blunder from the bullpen.

This time it was Joaquin Benoit, who played the role of the gas can in the seventh inning. The veteran offered no resistance, allowing five runs to score. It was made even worse by Jake Thompson, who isn’t ready to be in the major leagues.

The Phils don’t have a reliable arm coming out of the bullpen at the moment, and its cost them dearly in the last few weeks.
