The Phillies have a very disappointing night in a loss to the Blue Jays, 4-0. When your starting pitcher gives up three runs before he records six outs, chances are not good for a victory. When your offense strikes out 14 times and does not score a single run, you simply are not winning.
Earlier in the season, it was the bullpen that was problematic but, they seem to get things together and with Archie Bradley pitching a rehab assignment in Lehigh Valley, there is more hope. Aaron Nola (6 2/3 innings, 3 earned runs, 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts) started off quite shaky but settled in to keep the Philadelphia squad in the game.
Matt Moore went the final 1 1/3 giving up an unearned run when Nick Maton couldn’t handle a throw from Andrew McCutcheon to allow the run to score. Maton was good in the batter’s box with his 2 for 4. Rhys Hoskins is showing signs of breaking out of his slump going 2 for 2 with a double and a walk. Vlad Guerrero Jr. went yard for the second straight game for the Blue Jays.

Bryce Harper is “day to day” with right shoulder stiffness. JT Realmuto was lifted for a pinch hitter, so something not right there. In his final at-bat of the night. Andrew McCutcheon rubbed his eyes several times. The Phillies have a very disappointing night.
