Will the Real Phillies Please Stand Up?

Will the real Philadelphia Phillies please stand up? Aaron Nola became the first Phillies pitcher in 2021 to throw a complete game and comes away with a 2-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon.

After missing Saturday’s game with back spasms, Bryce Harper made a return and went 3 for 3 with a walk. Harper launched a bomb to right center for what would be the game winner. One hit short of a cycle for Bryce.

Alec Bohm continues his maturation and knocked in a run with a SAC fly to make it 2-0.

The story of this one, however, was Aaron Nola. Nola had command of his repertoire of pitches and allowed only two Redbird hits while striking out 10 in his masterpiece.

Jean Segura (Hitting .352) was also impressive and hit 2 for 3 this afternoon that gave the Phillies the series victory and improved their record to 7-7. The Phillies have been up and down but hopefully, they can carry the momentum over. Will the real Phillies please stand up? For more Phillies coverage click here.
