Phillies Lose To Cardinals
The Philadelphia Phillies lost to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night by a score of 7-4. This game marked the end of an eight-game home stand for the Phillies, who are now just 6-7 in their last 13 games.
The Cardinals got on the board first in this contest with a run in the top of the first inning. Later in the inning, however, Philadelphia scored three runs to take a 3-1 lead. From there, it was all St. Louis as they took control of this game and never looked back. The Cardinals would go on to score five more times in this contest, closing out the scoring with an unearned run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
For the Phillies, starter Vince Velasquez struggled mightily tonight and was pulled after only four innings pitched. He allowed four runs – all earned – on six hits and two walks while striking out one batter. Fellow starter Jerad Eickhoff fared a bit better tonight, giving up four runs – three earned – on seven hits and one walk while striking out six batters over 5 2/3 innings pitched.
Overall, it was another tough loss for Philadelphia as they continue their downward spiral heading into their final week of play before September call-ups arrive later this month.
Phillies Defeat Reds
The Philadelphia Phillies had a big week, beating the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Wednesday night. They then won against the Miami Marlins on Friday by scores of 9-3 and 6-1. This gave them a record of 8-4 for the week. The win against the Reds was especially important because it clinched first place in the NL East division for the Phillies.
The Philadelphia Phillies had their first winning week of the season, and they did it in dramatic fashion. First, they rallied from a 4-0 deficit to defeat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4, then held on for a 6-5 victory over the Miami Marlins. The first game was especially impressive as rookie sensation J.P. Crawford led the way with two home runs and four RBIs.
The victory against Cincinnati was particularly satisfying as it ended an eight-game losing streak in Cincinnati for the Phillies. It also snapped a three-game series winless streak against division rivals Pittsburgh Pirates.
In the victory over Miami, ace pitcher Cliff Lee struggled early but recovered to earn his 11th win of the season. This is only one win behind his record from last season and it gives him sole possession of second place in team history for wins by a pitcher (behind Roy Halladay).
With this victory, the Phillies moved into fourth place in the National League East standings with a 25-26 record. They are still six games behind Atlanta Braves who have played two more games than Philadelphia.
Phillies Top Nationals
The Philadelphia Phillies hosted the Nationals in a National League Division Series matchup on October 10th. After splitting the first two games of the series, the Phillies took game three by a score of 9-4. Game four was played on October 13th and saw the Nationals take a 3-1 lead into the top of the ninth inning. However, bullpen troubles would prove to be costly as Nick Pivetta gave up a two-run homer to Rhys Hoskins to secure victory for Philadelphia.
The fifth and final game of the series was played on October 15th and saw Washington lose 8-7 in 10 innings. This semifinal matchup marked just the third time in MLB history that both teams had made it this far (the other instances were in 2003 and 2005). This year’s edition of the Phillies proved to be one of their most successful seasons ever, finishing with an 83-79 record while securing their spot in the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season.
Overall, this year’s iteration of the Phillies proved to be a powerhouse, as they advanced all six way to postseason play. Their success can be largely attributed to veteran players such as Charlie Manuel and Mike Foltynewicz who led them to new heights this season. Additionally, young stars such as Rhys Hoskins, Bryce Harper, and Nick Pivetta have helped propel them forward.
Phillies Take on Mets
Philadelphia Phillies Week Recap
The Philadelphia Phillies came roaring back this past week, scoring a total of 14 runs in their three games against the Mets. This was good for their first win in over a month and helped them jump out to a 2-1 series lead.
This week’s highlights include an 8th inning home run by Maikel Franco and an RBI single by Jorge Alfaro that put the Phillies up, 2-0 in their game on Wednesday night. They would go on to win that game 9-3. In addition, Odubel Herrera hit two home runs, including one in the 8th inning, which gave him his 10th RBI of the season and tied him with Cesar Hernandez for the team lead. This was also his 4th homer of the postseason.
In their contest on Saturday night, things didn’t start so well for the Phillies as they trailed 3-0 after four innings. However, they came storming back to tie the game at 3 apiece in the 6th inning and then took control from there. They scored eight unanswered runs over the next two innings to take a 12-4 victory. The biggest contributor offensively was Franco again as he had two hits (including a home run), drove in three runs, and scored two more touchdowns. Alfaro also had another strong game with three hits (two of them doubles), four RBIs, and two stolen bases.
Overall this past week showed us just how good this Phillies team can be when they are clicking. They will need to keep this up if they want to win the series against the Mets.
Phillies Fall to Marlins
The Philadelphia Phillies score a little late in the game on Tuesday night to take down the Miami Marlins, 5-3. The Phillies had been struggling mightily this season and were facing some tough competition in the National League East, but they have picked it up recently. In their last five games, they have won four of them.
Tuesday’s win was key as it kept the Phillies just 3 1/2 games behind first place Atlanta Braves in the division. They now head into a three-game series against the Washington Nationals starting on Wednesday.
Tuesday’s game started out pretty evenly with both teams scoring two runs apiece in the first inning. However, Miami took control after that and never looked back, winning by a score of 5-3.
One player who had a huge day for Philadelphia was Rhys Hoskins, who hit a home run and drove in three runs. This is his third dingershot of the season and fourth RBIs in as many games. Hoskins seems to be hitting his stride at just the right time for Philadelphia and will need to continue putting up big numbers if they want to make any noise in the playoffs this year.
Overall, it was another good week for the Phillies as they move closer and closer to securing a spot in the post-season.
Phillies End Week With A Win
In their final game of the week, the Philadelphia Phillies scored a 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies.
The Phillies got on the scoreboard early as Rhys Hoskins hit a RBI single in the first inning. They would score another run in the second inning as Carlos Santana hit an RBI double. The Rockies would answer in the bottom of the second inning with a run of their own.
However, that would be all they would manage as the Phillies closed out the game with runs in each of the next four innings. In total, they scored six runs on thirteen hits. Roy Halladay pitched 7 1/3 innings and allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits while striking out nine batters.
This was a crucial victory for Philadelphia as it moved them into fourth place in the NL East standings with eighty-eight points. Next up for them is a three-game series against Miami at Citizens Bank Park beginning on Saturday evening [8/7].
In this recap of the Philsies’ week, we take a look at how they fared both on the field and in the standings. Overall, it was a good week for Philadelphia as they managed to clinch a playoff spot, although there were some close calls along the way. As for their performance on the field, they did well in all three games against strong opponents and left with valuable wins that put them one step closer to securing their spot in next year’s postseason. Finally, we take a look at where things stand with regards to the team’s standings and see if anything changes during this final week of the regular season.
