Notes From The Phillies’ 5-2 Win Over Miami

The Philadelphia Phillies won the second game of their series with the Marlins on Tuesday night 5-2. Their record improves to 31-61.

On The Mound

  • Vince Velasquez made his return to the rotation, and pitched six solid innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits.
  • Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless seventh and got the win.
  • Joaquin Benoit got the team through the eighth.
  • Hector Neris came on and got the save in the ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense scored five runs on 13 hits.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 0-4 at the top of the order.
  • Freddy Galvis went 2-5 with a couple of singles.
  • Nick Williams hit third, and went 2-5 with a two-run homer.
  • Tommy Joseph went 0-5, dropping his average to .244.
  • Maikel Franco went 3-5 with a double and a solo homer.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-3 with a couple of singles.
  • Cameron Rupp went 1-4 with a base hit.
  • Cameron Perkins started in left, going 2-4 with two RBI’s.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies have had a handful of encouraging games lately.

It was good to see Vince Velasquez rejoin the rotation and look a little refreshed. Hopefully this is the kind of game that he can build on and finish the second half strong.

Nick Williams continues to impress as well. The young outfielder has provided the anemic lineup a good shot in the arm of late, and has played a key role in each of the team’s recent wins.

  1. Nick Williams balling! hard to believe, only been begging for his call up for a year now. now get rid of this looooooooooooza tommy joseph and call up the HR king

    • trust the process dude…there was no rush to get him up to the majors. In all seriousness though if he can continue to use all parts of the field, not get pull happy the guy has a future. As for Joseph– tough call for the phils- the guys is actually productive but certainly not a piece to the puzzle- gotta play him to see if he can be part of a package- I’d think an AL team could see him as a rotational DH/1B guy.

      • tommy joseph is shit

        • His numbers say otherwise… in fact statistically he’s better than Moreland from the first place Sox, again I don’t see him as a player to block someone but his 162 game averages put him at 251, 30 and 75…. he will be in the bigs for awhile. Just hope he can sweeten the pot on one of the upcoming trades.
