Notes From The Phillies’ 9-6 Loss To Milwaukee

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their first game back from the All-Star break on Friday night, falling to the Brewers 9-6. Their record drops to 29-59.

On The Mound

  • Nick Pivetta was lit up for nine runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings.
  • Pivetta was tagged early by Ryan Braun for a grand slam in the second inning, and gave up four more runs before finally escaping the frame.
  • Ricardo Pinto struck out two coming in relief in the sixth.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Joaquin Benoit got the team through the eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed six runs on nine hits.
  • Aaron Altherr hit out of the leadoff spot again, going 2-3 with two doubles. Altherr now has 20 doubles on the year.
  • Freddy Galvis went 1-4 with a single and walk, and scored two runs.
  • Big night at the plate for Maikel Franco, who went 4-5 with two doubles and drove in two runs.
  • Tommy Joseph turned in an 0-4.
  • Nick Williams went 0-4, but drove in a run.
  • Andrew Knapp went 1-4 with a single.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-3 with a two-run homer.
  • Andres Blanco started at second, and went 0-3.

Final Thoughts

The second half of the season started out with a loss and a disappointing showing from Nick Pivetta, but at least the offense showed a little fight and made things interesting in this one.

I’d be shocked if tonight’s 4-5 effort from Maikel Franco really meant anything. Franco has had his occasional big games throughout the season, and followed them up with a week of 0-4’s. We’ll see if this time around is any different.

  1. What’s with Altherr’s Injury? anything serious? He’s been the most consistent Player and would be a shame if he were to miss any Extended Time..
    There will be a lot of high scoring Games like this one during the 2nd half of the Season as the Phillies are basically trotting out “Minor Leauge” Pitchers most of the time..

    • I thought you wanted them to get young. Now your bitching and saying Minor league pitching? They are developing some good young arms…. of course you’d know that if you weren’t a negative nitwit. Nola looks to develop into a 1, 1A or a 2…. Pivett and Lively are MLB pitchers….
