Phils Struggles Continue

The slumping Philadelphia Phillies fall to 4-7 with 4-1 road loss to the 7-3 Colorado Rockies

Aaron Nola drops to 1-2 despite pitching well.

Meanwhile, the offense remains MIA.

To the Action..

The pride of Newark, Delaware, Chad Kuhl was on the mound for the Rockies and did his best Cy Young impersonation with his 2 hits, 1 walk in 6 innings and tossing 68 pitches.

Nola gave up a bomb to Charlie Blackmon and was charged with a second run when Jose Alvarado uncorked a wild pitch that scored CJ Cron.

Nola’s line..84 pitches over 5 1/3 innings 4 strikeouts, 6 hits and a walk.

Jose Alvarado had not one,. But two wild pitches and a walk in 2/3 of an inning.

James Norwood was equally unimpressive with 19 pitches in 2/3 of an inning that included 2 hits, and 2 runs

Philadelphia seemed to showing spark when Didi Gregorius nailed an RBI pinch hit double cutting it to 4-1.

JT Realmuto came up with runners at second and third with one out andBryce Harper on deck..

Phils in business right!?

Guess again, Realmuto lined to pitcher Jhoulys Chacin who turned and doubled off Gregorius to end the inning.

What Else Went Wrong?

Rhys Hoskins did not have a banner game. Getting picked off first and watching and waiting for a ground ball up the line that hit the bag.

The Road trip from Hell sees Philadelphia dropping 4 of 5. The highly Million Dollar Lineup has scored 3 runs or less in five of the 7 losses…Did someone say, “Flyers”?
