Notes From The Phillies’ 13-4 Loss To Houston

The Philadelphia Phillies lost the first game of their series with the Astros on Monday night, falling 13-4. Their record drops to 34-63.

On The Mound

  • Vince Velasquez lasted just three innings, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks.
  • Ricardo Pinto was lit up for six runs on seven hits in just 1.1 innings of work.
  • Hoby Milner gave up two runs in 2.2 frames.
  • Adam Morgan gave up a run in two innings of mop up work.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up four runs on 10 hits.
  • Nick Williams supplied three of the runs, going 2-5 with a triple.
  • Tommy Joseph drove in the team’s other run with an RBI double.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 3-5 with three singles.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-3.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Andrew Knapp went 1-3 with a double.

Final Thoughts

The Phils got hit and early and often by the explosive Houston offense, and never really had a chance in this one.

But once again, Nick Williams continues to shine as one of this team’s major positives.

  1. Velasquez after a Great Start to his Phillie Career has done nothing but crashed and burn since…. Wasn’t he like 4-1 in his first 5 Start (April/May of 2016) with a crazy Low ERA and then he’s been blown up ever since as if he’s forgotten how to Pitch.. He throws hard but the balls always on the same plane, His only Hope as a MLB Pitcher in my opinion is as a Reliever where he’s better suited for coming in for 1 Inning only and letting it rip..He just doesn’t have enough Pitches or Control to last very long or to face a Line-up multiple times.. Phillies should try him as a Set-up Pitcher ans see how he does with that for he’s not a Starting Pitcher

  2. Watching the Phils tonight…Pivetta was pitching excellent. Ump has a tight zone (both ways) and he starts missing his spot – either a wild ball which hitters lay off or a grooved pitch. Then it blows up.
    Astros are excellent team but contrary to my previous thoughts they are NOT a young team.
