Notes From The Phillies’ 6-5 Loss To St. Louis

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their fifth straight game on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Cardinals 6-5. Their record drops to 21-40.

On The Mound

  • Aaron Nola lasted just five innings, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks.
  • Joaquin Benoit made his return from the disabled list, and was lit up for two runs on three hits while recording just two outs.
  • Edubray Ramos got the final out of the sixth, taking over for Benoit.
  • Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Hector Neris gave up a run on two hits in the eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up five runs on 12 hits.
  • Odubel Herrera remains red-hot, going 3-5 with a double and two RBI’s.
  • Herrera is now batting above .250, currently .257.
  • Daniel Nava got a start in left, and went 2-5 with a solo home run, his first homer since the second game of the season.
  • Howie Kendrick played second, and went 2-4 with a double and an RBI.
  • Tommy Joseph went 1-5 with a single and drove in a run.
  • Michael Saunders got the start in right, and went 0-4, dropping his average to .203.
  • Maikel Franco went 1-4 with a single.
  • Andrew Knapp caught the game and went 2-3 with two singles and a walk.
  • Freddy Galvis singled and walked in three plate appearances.

Final Thoughts

Aaron Nola’s consistency is an issue once again.

Good start, bad start, good start, bad start.

Nola had a three-inning clunker three starts ago. He followed that with a shining eight-inning effort last week. Today, he came up with a mediocre five-inning showing.

Nola’s shown flashes of being a quality starter in this league, but hasn’t been able to sustain it. Perhaps its something he’ll get better with later in his career, but for the time being its a source of frustration for Phillies’ fans. on Facebook
