Notes From The Phillies’ 2-1 Win Over Atlanta

The Philadelphia Phillies won their fourth straight game on Sunday afternoon, taking down the Braves 2-1. Their record improves to 38-64.

On The Mound

  • Vince Velasquez got the start, and threw seven scoreless innings, easily his best showing of the season.
  • Velasquez scattered six hits, and walked three. He struck out six.
  • Luis Garcia gave up the tying run in the eighth.
  • Hector Neris picked up the win with a scoreless ninth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed two runs on nine hits.
  • Freddy Galvis went back to the two-hole, and responded by going 3-5, including the game winning single in the ninth.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 2-4 with a walk at the top of the order.
  • Aaron Altherr and Nick Williams both went 0-4.
  • Tommy Joseph went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-4 with a couple of singles.
  • Maikel Franco went 1-3 with a single and a walk.
  • Andrew Knapp went 1-3 with a double.

Final Thoughts

A four-game winning streak.

Such an idea would have seemed ridiculous after trudging through May and June.

Vince Velasquez showed some reason for hope today with his strong outing. Velasquez has had a couple of good outings since his return from the disabled list, but now he needs to develop the same consistency that Aaron Nola has found.
