Notes From The Phillies’ 4-3 Win Over Atlanta

The Philadelphia Phillies won their third straight game on Saturday night, taking down the Braves 4-3. Their record improves to 37-64.

On The Mound

  • Jerad Eickhoff pitched five innings, giving up three runs (only one earned).
  • Eickhoff struck out three and walked three.
  • Jesen Therrien made his major league debut with a scoreless sixth.
  • Hoby Milner pitched a scoreless seventh.
  • Pedro Beato also made his debut, getting through two thirds of an inning.
  • Luis Garcia got the final out of the eighth, and came back for a scoreless ninth.
  • Hector Neris pitched scoreless 10th and 11th innings to get the win.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up four runs on eight hits.
  • Odubel Herrera went 3-4, driving in two runs, including the game-tying run in the bottom of the ninth with a solo home run.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-3 with two walks and an RBI.
  • Ty Kelly singled home the winning run in the 11th.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 2-5 with a triple.
  • Nick Williams went 0-5 with two strikeouts.
  • Tommy Joseph went 1-5 with a single.
  • Maikel Franco went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Freddy Galvis went 0-5.
  • Cameron Rupp went 0-4 with a walk.

Final Thoughts

The Phils are on a bit of a roll since the All-Star break.

Young players getting opportunities to play have been powering the team’s recent success, particularly the young outfield of Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr, and Odubel Herrera providing most of the offense.

Williams has cooled a bit this week, but has been off to a very impressive start to his career. Altherr has shown all season that he can be an everyday player. Herrera is frustrating, but when he’s got, he’s a dangerous player as well.
