The bullpen and Berti doom the Phillies, 4-2. Can’t pin this one on Aaron Nola. Another quality start from a Phils starter gets wasted when Jon Berti knocked a two-run single to put Miami in front, 4-2.
Nola was his usual solid self, going 6 innings allowing just 2 hits with one run, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Sam Coonrod entered and things went more South than Miami. In his 1 inning, Coonrod was victimized with 3 hits, 3 runs, and a walk.
Light hitting, Jon Berti supplied his first RBIs in twenty games. Corey Dickerson singled, Coonrod retired the next two batters before Isan Diaz walked. Knapp had a passed ball bringing up Berti who slapped an opposite-field two-run single. Berti subsequently swiped second then was brought home on Jesus Devers’ single.
The Phillies runs occurred when Brad Miller was hit by a pitch with the bases juiced and a Rhys Hoskins Sac Fly. The same two teams go at it again on Thursday. The bullpen and Berti doom the Phillies but hopefully they can bounce back.
