Notes From The Phillies’ 10-3 Win Over Atlanta

The Philadelphia Phillies won the first game of their series against the Braves on Friday night 10-3. Their record improves to 36-64.

On The Mound

  • Jeremy Hellickson was traded and scratched from tonight’s start (more on that later) and Jake Thompson was given a spot start in his place.
  • Thompson responded with five scoreless innings, earning the win. He allowed five hits and two walks.
  • Hoby Milner pitched two innings, and gave up two runs.
  • Adam Morgan gave up a run on three hits and recorded two outs in the eighth.
  • Joaquin Benoit got the final four outs of the game, and was credited with a save.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up 10 runs on 12 hits.
  • Aaron Altherr went 2-3 with two homers and a walk.
  • Tommy Joseph went 1-4 with a three-run shot.
  • Cameron Rupp went 2-4 with a solo homer.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-5 with a single.
  • Freddy Galvis went 3-5 with a triple, driving in two runs.
  • Nick Williams went 1-4 with a single.
  • Maikel Franco went 1-4 with a base hit.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-4 with a single.

Final Thoughts

With the trade deadline looming, the Phillies were very active on Friday night, dealing away Jeremy Hellickson to the Orioles, and Howie Kendrick to the Nationals.

For Hellickson, the team acquired outfielder Hyunn Soo Kim, who projects to be a spare-part outfielder, pitcher Garrett Cleavinger, who currently has an ERA over 6.00 in the minors.

For Kendrick, the Phils did a little better, picking up pitcher McKenzie Mills, who has a 12-2 record with a 3.01 ERA in Low-A ball. He’s a left-handed starter.

Matt Klentak didn’t come away with a particularly impressive trade deadline haul, but neither Hellickson nor Kendrick carried a great deal of trade value. Hellickson started the year on fire, but quickly cooled off. Kendrick has battled injuries all season.

Meanwhile, Jake Thompson, a centerpiece of the Cole Hamels trade, has been a disaster in the minors, but it was very encouraging to see him come out and toss five scoreless in his chance for a spot start.

  1. Hellickson and kendricks traded

  2. So we are going to see a steady dose of kids on the mound. There will be some rough spots. OF looks decent… they are pounding the ball lately. Altherr looks like a 5 tool guy. Williams looks like a real player and Herrera as frustrating as he is can really pkay

  3. Real problem is the staff. Thankfully Nola is looking like he is the pitcher that they needed at the the top of the rotation, but that is the biggest need. No one to buy right now, but that is where they will spend or put together a trade.

    Although Harper would hit about 50 bombs a year at CBP.

    • I don’t think they will buy too much pitching… very risky. They have bout 10-12 starters in the organization that they are hi on and hoping 5-6 work out
