Notes From The Phillies’ 7-2 Win Over Pittsburgh

The Philadelphia Phillies snapped their four-game losing streak on Friday night, taking down the Pirates 7-2. Their record improves to 15-24.

On The Mound

  • Jeremy Hellickson anchored the team with six innings, allowing two runs (only one earned) on just two hits.
  • Hellickson gave up two runs in the first inning, but settled down into a groove for the rest of the night.
  • Hellickson helped his own cause with an RBI-double in the seventh.
  • Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Joaquin Benoit worked a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris mopped up with a scoreless ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed seven runs on 10 hits.
  • Cesar Hernandez came up with an RBI-single in the third to put the team’s first run on the board.
  • Hernandez went 1-4 with a walk.
  • Aaron Altherr tied the game with an RBI-groundout in the sixth, and Tommy Joseph gave the team the lead with a sacrifice fly.
  • Cameron Rupp supplied a three-run homer in the ninth that put the game out of reach.
  • Daniel Nava started in right, and went 1-3 with a double.
  • Odubel Herrera hit fifth and went 1-4 with a single.
  • Maikel Franco and Freddy Galvis each went 2-4 at the bottom of the order.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies finally were able to stop the bleeding and pick up a victory.

A little good momentum can go a long way sometimes, and with any luck the Phils will be able to build from this win and begin to climb out of the hole they’ve put themselves in over the last two weeks.
