Notes From The Phillies’ 6-5 Loss To Boston

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their sixth straight game on Monday night, falling to the Red Sox 6-5. Their record drops to 21-41.

On The Mound

  • Jerad Eickhoff was given a four-run lead to start the game, but quickly spit it back up.
  • Eickhoff gave up for runs, three earned over six innings. Eickhoff gave up seven hits, two walks, and struck out six.
  • Eickhoff pitched just two scoreless for the night.
  • Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Joaquin Benoit gave up a run on two hits in the eighth.
  • Casey Fien was called on to take over in the ninth. Fien managed two scoreless, but allowed the winning run to score in the 11th.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed five runs on 14 hits.
  • Four of the team’s runs came in the first inning. After a Daniel Nava double, Tommy Joseph singled home two runs. Andres Blanco doubled home a run to follow Joseph, and Maikel Franco singled in the fourth.
  • Howie Kendrick drove in the team’s fifth run with a single.
  • The team had an opportunity to take the lead in the 10th. After a double from Franco, the Phils had runners at second and third with just one out. However, Andrew Knapp and Freddy Galvis both struck out to end the threat.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-6 with a couple of singles.
  • Daniel Nava got another start in left, and went 3-6 with a double.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-6 and struck out three times.
  • Howie Kendrick went 3-6 with three singles.
  • Tommy Joseph, after driving in two runs in the first, finished 2-5.
  • Andres Blanco played third, going 1-4.
  • Maikel Franco served as the team’s DH, going 2-4 with a double and a walk.
  • Andrew Knapp and Freddy Galvis went a combined 0-10.

Final Thoughts

Jerad Eickhoff hasn’t had a lot of luck this season, but tonight’s performance was just inexcusable.

To be spotted a four-run lead before he took the mound, and then slowly give it up over six innings was just terrible. Sooner or later, he’s got to be able to go out and put together a good start.

Eickhoff hasn’t pitched more than six innings since his second start of the season. He’s allowed less than three runs only once in his last 11 starts. It’s fair to wonder how viable of a prospect he is at this point.
