Notes From The Phillies’ 4-3 Loss To Washington

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their second straight game on Thursday night, falling to the Nationals 4-3. Their record drops to 53-87.

On The Mound

  • Aaron Nola started, and lasted 5.1 innings, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks, while striking out eight.
  • Adam Morgan took the loss, giving up a run on two hits and a walk in 1.2 innings of work.
  • Morgan quietly had been pitching very well of late, he’s now only given up two runs since August 2nd.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless eighth.

At The Plate

  • The offense managed three runs on eight hits.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-4 at the top of the order with a double.
  • Freddy Galvis went 1-4 with a single and drove in a run.
  • Odubel Herrera went 2-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Rhys Hoskins took an 0-4, leaving five on base.
  • Nick Williams went 1-4 with a single.
  • Tommy Joseph went 1-3 with a solo homer.
  • J.P. Crawford started again at third, and took an 0-4.
  • Jorge Alfaro went 1-4 with a solo shot.

Final Thoughts

I like what Jorge Alfaro has brought to the bottom of the order.

The young catching prospect has hit .355 and brought some valuable pop to eight hole, but he’s got to improve as a catcher, and get better at handling the pitching staff.

You really have to wonder how many at-bats Maikel Franco is going to see from now until the end of the year. They’re going to give Crawford a good long look at third base, leaving no room at the inn for Franco.

  1. had no clue JP was up, have no clue why he is up either

    • I think it all goes back to how bad Franco has been. I don’t think they see him as a part of their future anymore, so they want to see who else might be able to play third…I don’t think Crawford is a fit there, at least offensively. They’re probably going to end up tradng Galvis this offseason.
