Notes From The Phillies’ 7-6 Win Over Atlanta

The Philadelphia Phillies won their fifth straight game on Monday afternoon, taking down the Braves 7-6. Their record improves to 39-64.

On The Mound

  • Nick Pivetta bounced back from a couple of rough starts, pitching six innings and allowing just one run on three hits.
  • Pivetta walked one and struck out five.
  • Jesen Therrien took over in the seventh, and suffered through a rough outing, recording just one out and allowing three runs to score to let the Braves back in to the game.
  • Adam Morgan got the last two outs of the seventh, and the first of the eighth, allowing a solo home run.
  • Luis Garcia got the team through the rest of the eighth.
  • Hector Neris got through a rocky ninth-inning, allowing a run on a hit and a walk, but still was able to earn the save.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up seven runs on nine hits.
  • Odubel Herrera supplied a three-run homer in the third inning.
  • Tommy Joseph went 3-4, driving in two runs.
  • Hyunn Soo Kim made his Phillies debut, going 0-1, but collecting three walks.
  • Maikel Franco went 2-4 with a solo home run.
  • Andrew Knapp went 0-4.
  • Aaron Altherr went 1-3 with an RBI.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 2-4 with a walk and scored two runs.
  • Freddy Galvis went 0-5.

Final Thoughts

The Phils just pulled off a nice four-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves. The Braves aren’t a great team by any stretch, but any time a team as bad as the Phillies can sustain a winning level of play for as long as they have, its something worth noting.

The Phils have been playing at a much more respectable level as of late. They’ve won 10 of their last 14 games, and have been watchable as we go into the tail-end of the season. on Facebook
