After splitting the series with the Braves, our Phillies had some positives and negatives. Just when we thought everything was going copacetic with a three-game winning streak. We were opening up with Matt Vierling going 5 for 5 in the first game. The biggest game of his career, carrying that moment against the Braves for the first two games and punishing them on Friday night by having a hit parade down in South Philly, outscoring the Braves 9-1 played really great small ball. Rhys is the player of the game, almost hitting for the cycle and making incredible defensive plays. Aaron Nola putting up 8ks, allowing 4 hits and 3 walks.
Playing like a man on a mission. Then Saturday night is where things got sloppy. Bailey Falter coming back down to earth. Has he given up 10 hits and a home run to William Contreras? He has really become a thorn in the Phillies’ side. Coming clutch with key hits. Sunday’s game. Again, pitching and the bullpen held back this Phillies team from a victory. 9ks for Kyle Gibson however gave up 7 hits and 2 walks, and it’s a shame where Kyle Schwarber had 2 home runs. The run support was there, but it wasn’t enough. Positives and negatives are: Bryce Harper is starting to make good contact. The team is a good small ball. It’s an easy schedule to the end. Phillies control their own destiny. However, is it a sign that the arms are getting cold? We’ll see what happens from here.
