Notes From The Phillies’ 5-4 Win Over Seattle

The Philadelphia Phillies won their second straight game on Wednesday afternoon, taking down the Mariners 5-4. Their record improves to 25-51.

On The Mound

  • Mark Leiter got another spot start for Jerad Eickhoff, and turned in a decent outing, lasting five innings and giving up four runs.
  • Leiter had trouble keeping the ball in the yard, allowing three solo home runs.
  • Ricardo Pinto was strong in relief, tossing three scoreless innings and picking up the win.
  • Hector Neris closed the door in the ninth for his seventh save.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up five runs on 11 hits.
  • Tommy Joseph hit a solo homer to tie the game in the ninth.
  • Andrew Knapp went 2-3 with a single and drove in the winning run in the ninth.
  • Ty Kelly went 1-4 with a two-run homer in the third.
  • Daniel Nava went 1-4 with a single at the top of the order.
  • Freddy Galvis went 1-4 with a single.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-4 with a single.
  • Odubel Herrera went 0-3 with a walk, and drove in a run.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-4.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies haven’t had many bright spots over the last two months, but this two-game sweep of the Mariners is certainly one of them.

The team battled back from a late hole to come up with some clutch hitting in the ninth. Mark Leiter wasn’t great in his second start, but did a good job keeping the team in the game, and Ricardo Pinto’s three scoreless prevented the game from getting out of hand and afforded the bats an opportunity to come up big in the ninth.

It’s the first time the Phillies have won a series on the road since April. on Facebook

  1. Phils call up Nick Williams who will join the team in NY. May be short term with Kendrick being on the DL but hopefully he will stick around.

    Kingery and Hoskins killing it in AAA. At least something to look forward to. Klentak should be able to move Hernandez, but Joseph may be harder.
