Notes From The Phillies’ 6-4 Loss To Washington

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their third straight game on Saturday night, falling to the Nationals 6-4. Their record drops to 13-20.

On The Mound

  • Nick Pivetta got the start, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks over just 4.2 innings of work.
  • Pivetta started the game strong with four scoreless innings, but then melted down and couldn’t get out of the fifth.
  • Luis Garcia got the final out of the fifth and pitched a scoreless sixth.
  • Joely Rodriguez got the first out of the seventh.
  • Pat Neshek came on and finished the frame.
  • Joaquin Benoit got the team through the eighth.
  • Edubray Ramos came out to pitch the ninth, and served up a walk-off homer to Bryce Harper (who else?)

At The Plate

  • The offense managed four runs on eight hits.
  • The team had a three-run outburst in the fourth inning. Michael Saunders got the scoring started with an RBI-single. Cameron Rupp followed him with a two-run single.
  • Tommy Joseph doubled home the team’s fourth run in the fifth. Joseph hit out of the cleanup hole for the first time all season.
  • Joseph went 2-3 with a walk, increasing his average to .255.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-3 with a single and worked two walks.
  • Odubel Herrera went 0-5 with three strikeouts and left six men on base.
  • Aaron Altherr went 0-3 but worked two walks.
  • Maikel Franco was dropped to sixth in the order, and went 1-4 with a single.
  • Freddy Galvis went 0-3 with a walk.

Final Thoughts

Why do the Phillies bother pitching to Bryce Harper?

Seriously, he’s delivered multiple game-winning blows against the team in this young season, and the pitching staff just can’t figure out a way to stand up to him. After an extended rest for the team because of inclement weather, to see them come back, blow a four-run lead, and then lose another game at the hands of Bryce Harper was pretty disheartening. on Facebook

  1. Why is the Phillies mosteffective and productive Pitcher in the Bullpen (Pat Neshak) not getting a chance to Save Games?
    He has 14 Appearances with 12 + Innings Pitched with a 0.00 ERA and 4 Holds.. Why not use him to close out Games? How many Games has the Back end of the Bullpen lost this Season?
