Wheeler Deals a complete game, 2-0, victory. Zack Wheeler and Brandon Woodruff put on a pitching display that Wheeler would win with a complete game 2-0 shutout.
How good was Wheeler? He pitched to a minimum of 24 batters they 8 innings. His line. 9 innings, 3 hits, no walks, and 8 strikeouts.
Wheeler, at one point, retired 18 straight Brewers. He allowed singles to Lorenzo Cain and Avisail Garcia in the ninth inning to get everyone nervous. Manager Joe Girardi came out for a chat but, left Wheeler to get his second career shutout on his 118th pitch.
“It felt good, especially since they got those two hits right there in the last inning. They weren’t anything special, but when your pitch count is up and you’re in the last inning, it makes you a little nervous out there I guess, but you have confidence in yourself and you just have to make your pitches.” Wheeler commented.
Woodruff was good as well with 6 2/3 innings, 1 earned run, 2 walks, and 11 strikeouts. One of the hits was a “Bohm Bomb” that gave Philly the lead. Angel Perdomo finished up with 1 1/3 innings, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts with two hits. Rhys Hoskins smashed a double to get it to 2-0. The Phillies swept the four-game series and head out on the road for a nine-goal stint. Wheeler deals one hell of a game.
