Notes From The Phillies’ 7-6 Loss To St. Louis

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their fifth straight game on Wednesday night, falling to the Cardinals 7-6. Their record drops to 22-48.

On The Mound

  • Nick Pivetta turned in another solid start, allowing three runs on four hits over six innings.
  • Pivetta struck out 10 batters.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Joaquin Benoit allowed a solo home run in the eighth.
  • Hector Neris blew another save, allowing a run in the ninth.
  • Edubray Ramos struggled heavily for the second game in a row, allowing two runs while recording just one out in the 10th.
  • Adam Morgan got the final two outs of the 10th.

At The Plate

  • The offense generated six runs on 16 hits.
  • Cameron Perkins made his debut, batting leadoff and going 2-6 with two singles and three strikeouts.
  • Howie Kendrick went 3-5 with three singles and a walk.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-6 and drove in a run.
  • Tommy Joseph went 1-5 with a single.
  • Maikel Franco went 2-5 and drove in a run.
  • Odubel Herrera hit sixth, and went 2-5 with a double and drove in two runs.
  • Freddy Galvis went 3-5 with two doubles.
  • Andrew Knapp went 1-3 with two walks.

Final Thoughts

The Phils jumped out to a 5-0 lead in this game, only to watch it slowly slip away with yet another bullpen implosion.

Edubray Ramos is too wild and inconsistent to be an effective major league pitcher. The last two nights alone, he’s been an absolute gas can.

On the positive side of things, Nick Pivetta has turned in two pretty strong starts in a row. His seven scoreless innings last week and his 10-strikeout effort on Wednesday has given followers of the team something encouraging in between all of these losses.

  1. Phils analysts Kruk and Schmidt have to be pulling their hair out watching the fundamentally terrible product right now. Herrera is baffling. Sammy says it’s the first time a player has run thru a stop sign. Eickoff and Pivetta have been good, Nola ok. Otherwise not so much

    • Lmfao u might as well be speaking Chinese. I know nothing about what ur talking bout. Kudos to you for paying attention to those lames. I didn’t even know Kruck and Michael jack were phils analysts.

  2. Herrera should become a high paid triple A player… tell him he has the rest of the year to learn fundamentals and we will see ya next February in Clearwater

  3. Andy Reid up to his old tricks he’s back to being gm/coach. Good luck with that
