Aaron Nola ineffective and the Phillies lose, 6-1 to the Braves on Sunday baseball. Coming off the Saturday night’s debacle, Philadelphia felt good about having Aaron Nola on the hill.
Things didn’t go as planned. Andrew McCutcheon hit the game’s first pitch into the seats to give the Phils the 1-0 lead. Nola took the mound and the euphoria was quickly doused Freddie Freeman (3-3 with a walk, homer, and two RBIs) singled and scored when Ozzie Albies tripled
Dansby Swanson went yard with a two-run shot. It would be the shortest start in Nola’s career with him going only 4 innings allowing 5 hits, 5 runs, 1 walk, and 4 strikeouts.
His counterpart. Huascap Ynoa was much better by going 6 innings with 1 earned run off 6 hits, a walk, and 6 k’s. With Atlanta at full capacity, the series drew in excess of 100,000 fans. Nola ineffective on a very disappointing Mother’s Day.
