Notes From The Phillies’ 5-3 Win Over Oakland

The Philadelphia Phillies won the second game of their series against the Athletics on Saturday night 5-3. Their record improves to 58-90.

On The Mound

  • Ben Lively started and pitched just three innings to the weather. Lively gave up two runs.
  • Yacksel Rios struck out two with a scoreless fourth.
  • Victor Arano threw two scoreless to get the win.
  • Hoby Milner and Edubray Ramos combined to get through the seventh.
  • Milner has an ERA of 1.73 for the season.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Hector Neris got the save.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up five runs on eight hits.
  • Jorge Alfaro went 2-4, sending up a two-run homer.
  • J.P. Crawford went 1-2 with a walk, driving in two.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 1-4 at the top of the order, driving in a run.
  • Freddy Galvis went 1-3 with a walk.
  • Nick Williams took an 0-4.
  • Rhys Hoskins went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Odubel Herrera went 1-3 with a single.
  • Tommy Joseph was back in the lineup, going 1-4 with a single.

Final Thoughts

Strong game from the bullpen tonight, which combined for six innings of one-run ball.

It isn’t clear how many of these guys will be factors in the bullpen next year, but there’s a lot of guys who are turning in good auditions in the final months of the season. Milner and his low ERA as a left specialist should be in the mix. Luis Garcia has had some rough moments, but his 2.51 ERA has been solid enough. on Facebook

  1. 7th and 8th spot hitters won this game ( Alfaro and Crawford). These youngs might be able to drag the Phils out of the bottom of the basement in the NL East next year. ( Hoskins, Williams, Alfaro, & Crawford) Crawford seems to be getting a long look at 3rd base. Franco’s MLB career is drifting away. The had Franco playing 1st base this week ( as if he is trying to hold onto his MLB job as a utility player) Are Phils even going to offer him arbitration?
