Notes From The Phillies’ 3-2 Win Over Colorado

The Philadelphia Phillies snapped their five-game losing streak on Sunday afternoon, taking down the Rockies 3-2. Their record improves to 40-69.

On The Mound

  • Aaron Nola threw another strong game, going seven innings and allowing just two runs.
  • Nola gave up six hits and walked two, striking out seven.
  • Ricardo Pinto pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris survived another shaky ninth inning for the save.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed three runs on nine hits.
  • The team managed just one run through eight innings, but Cameron Rupp came up with an RBI-double in the ninth to give the team a late lead.
  • Rupp finished the game 3-4 with two doubles.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-3 with a single and two walks.
  • Freddy Galvis went 0-4.
  • Daniel Nava got a start at first base, going 1-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Nick Williams went 0-4, leaving five on base.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-4 with a double in the ninth.
  • Maikel Franco went 2-4 with an RBI.
  • Hyunn Soo Kim went 0-4.
  • Andres Blanco had a pinch-hit double.

Final Thoughts

The Phils came dangerously close to extending their losing streak to six games, but a nice late-inning rally against a Colorado closer that had only blown one save all season prevented that from being the case.

Aaron Nola had a 1.32 ERA for the month of July, and his strong play carried over to his first start in August. The ace didn’t get the win, but kept the team in the game against a potent Colorado lineup with seven strong frames of work.
