Notes From The Phillies’ 7-1 Win Over San Diego

The Philadelphia Phillies snapped their five-game losing streak on Saturday afternoon, taking down the Padres 7-1. Their record improves to 29-58.

On The Mound

  • Jerad Eickhoff returned from the disabled list, and tossed five scoreless innings, allowing five hits, one walk, and striking out eight.
  • It was the first win of the season for Eickhoff, who now stands at 1-7.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless sixth.
  • Pat Neshek struck out two in a scoreless seventh.
  • Joaquin Benoit pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris gave up a run while getting some work in during the ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense exploded for seven runs on nine hits.
  • Aaron Altherr hit out of the leadoff spot for the first time this season, and responded by going 2-3 with a double, a homer and an RBI.
  • Freddy Galvis went 2-4, smacking two home runs and driving in three.
  • Maikel Franco and Tommy Joseph combined to go 0-8.
  • Nick Williams went 2-4 and hit his first home run of the season.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-4 with a solo shot.
  • Cameron Rupp went 2-3 and hit a solo homer of his own.
  • Ty Kelly started at second, and went 0-3.

Final Thoughts

A win for Jerad Eickhoff? Someone wake me up.

Eickhoff has been this year’s hard-luck loser on the staff, rarely getting run support and as a result dragged through the first half of the season without a victory until today.

The offense hit six, count em, six home runs this afternoon. That’s an impressive feat for an offense that’s been so routinely bad on the season. The first half of the season has come to a close, and the Phillies have now reached the All-Star break. With the trade deadline looming, its possible that this terrible roster could get some welcome shakeups in the coming weeks. on Facebook
