You Knew It Had to End Sometime
In what figured to be a nice pitching duel between Max Scherzer and Aaron Nola, Mother Nature showed she isn’t a pitching fan and opened the skies to literally, rain on the Phillies parade with the Los Angeles Dodgers getting the beast of your Phillies, 5-0.
Nola was very good, going 4 innings allowing just one hit, and fanning 7. Then, the rains came.
As a result, both starters were replaced and , the guy I talked to Joe Girardi about, Matt “Please No’ Moore found his way to the mound and promptly allowed 3 hits and 3 runs in just a third of an inning..
On the upside, Damon Jones made his debut for Philadelphia, picking upa third of an inning with one hit and a pair of walks.
Corey Seager started things for the Dodgers with a solo shot with Will Smith adding an RBI single before AJ Pollock plated two more on a single. and Max Muncy with a solo shot ended the scoring.
Jean Segura was the Philly offense going 3 for 4. Only Travis Jankowski, Didi Gregorius and Brad MIller were the only other Phils to get a hit.
