What a difference a few hours make, Phillies win, 2-1. Aaron Nola may have finally got his mojo back. Nola pitched into the ninth inning and fell one batter shy of a complete game. Nola threw 116 pitches in his 8 2/3 innings allowing only four hits, striking out 9.
Austin Riley had three of the four hits with a pair of doubles and a ninth-inning home run that signaled the end for Nola. Ranger Suarez got the save facing just one batter. Jean Segura was outstanding, crushing a 4th inning home run and making a run-saving play to hold Riley at third. Ronald Torreyes supplied an insurance run with an eighth-inning home run.
The Phils made some roster moves with Travis Jankowski getting placed on, what else? The Covid list. Cristopher Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Chase Anderson and outfielder, Mickey Moniak were placed on the active roster. With the Mets victory, Philadelphia remains 4 games behind them. Wow, what a difference a few hours make.
