The Phils with a bounce-back win, 8-2. The Philadelphia Phillies looked to get back to their winning ways in a Matinee against the New York Mets Wednesday afternoon. With Aaron Nola on the hill, you had to like their chances
Nola left his “A” game at home and struggled but escaped a few jams in his 4 innings. Giving up 6 hits with 2 walks but, did garner 5 strikeouts. Bryce Harper (1), JT Realmuto (3), Alec Bohm (3), and Rhys Hoskins (1) furnished the RBI’s.
One of the questions coming into the season was Rhys Hoskins. Can he turn the corner and become more proficient with the bat?
Thus far, the answer is a firm yes. Hoskins went 3 for 5 with the RBI. The Mets could not get a key hit when they needed one.
Michael Conforto was puzzled all game long and besides having struck out twice, he went 0-5 and left no fewer than 9 runners on base. The Mets as a team were an anemic 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position. David Peterson, the Mets starting pitcher was roughed up tagged for six earned runs.
