Phillies fall hard, 11-1. The season of discontent continues in Cincinnati with an abysmal 11-1 thrashing at the hands of the Reds. The only bright spot, if you can call it that, was an RBI groundout by JT Realmuto that plated Jean Segura.
Wade Miley went 6 innings allowing only that run on 6 hits, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts. It took two Philadelphia pitchers to match the 6 inning mark posted by Miley. Vince Velasquez, who has shown signs of being a good pitcher, was anything but on this day. Going 3 innings allowing 5 hits, 6 earned runs 3 walks, and striking out 3.
Chase Anderson also went three innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, and a strikeout. Most of the damage was done by two Reds players, Max Schrock connected on a two-run homer and an RBI triple while going 3 for 4 and scoring twice. Kyle Farmer was a one-man wrecking crew with a 3 for 4 day and knocking in 5 on a 2 run homer, an RBI double, as well as a RBI single. Phillies fall hard and fast.
