Game Thread 6/5: Phillies at Cubs

Game Thread 6/5: Phillies at Cubs

After a day to think about what they did, the Phillies return for some more challenging-to-watch baseball. Zach Eflin’s on the mound. The wind is blowing in. Odubel Herrera’s in the two-hole. Scott Kingery’s in the three-hole. The Aaron Altherr experiment goes on. Let’s. Get. Nuts. Here's tonight's lineup from the North Side for our first of three against the Cubbies. #BeBold pic.twitter.com/YJQuXTmu4t— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) June 5, 2018

Jake Arrieta hit a home run: Giants 6, Phillies 1

Jake Arrieta hit a home run: Giants 6, Phillies 1

There is literally nothing else to talk about. In today’s game, a 6-1 loss to the Giants, Jake Arrieta hit a home run. I could end the recap there. Honestly, there isn’t much more you need to know other than the Phillies continue to look like they’ve completely forgotten how to score runs. The Phillies lone run today, and in this entire series, came today. It didn’t come off the bat of Odubel Herrera or Carlos Santana or Cesar Hernandez. It definitely didn’t come off the bat of Aaron Altherr, who struck out four times and looks utterly lost. Altherr’s bat is so cold it might...

Walks doom Pivetta and Phillies as Blue Jays take series finale

Toronto came to Philadelphia with an offense in tow widely regarded as one of the best in baseball. It showed its potency on Sunday at Citizens Bank Park, capitalizing on a trio of walks to down the Phillies on Sunday afternoon, 5-3. Of the Blue Jays five runs, three reached base via a walk.The Phillies offense sputtered early, finally piecing together an offensive threat in the sixth when Maikel Franco, Carlos Santana, Aaron Altherr, and Nick Williams belted consecutive singles to score three to bring the Phillies to within a run, but that's as close as they would come. Of the Phillies six...

Game Thread 5/22: Braves at Phillies

Wake up people; the Phillies aren’t getting swept by the Braves. The Braves’ “likability’ couldn’t stop Nick Pivetta and the Phillies from shutting them down after their arrival in Philadelphia on Monday night. Game one of this huge series for first place in the NL East had every narrative clicking: Pivetta, making the Jonathan Papelbon trade look even more ludicrous; a switcheroo as Nick Williams got the start and Aaron Altherr came on the pinch hit, only for both of them to hit home runs; Odubel Herrera begin another on-base streak; Jorge Alfaro’s smoking defense; another...

Is the Phillies offense good, bad or something else?

Is the Phillies offense good, bad or something else?

Trying to make sense of the Phillies’ confounding offense is not easy. The Phillies got off to a great start in their series against the Atlanta Braves on Monday, getting a terrific pitching performance from Nick Pivetta, and just enough offense — two home runs from Nick Williams and Aaron Altherr — to secure a huge, 3-0 victory. The day before, the Phils managed just two hits and one run against the Cardinals in a 5-1 loss, but scored seven runs the day before in their 7-6 come-from-behind victory in St. Louis. With a lineup filled with mostly young players, some of whom don’t play...

How Nick Williams began forcing his way into the Phillies' lineup

Phillies manager Gabe Kapler has been going with the hot hand in right field. But after Nick Williams and Aaron Altherr both homered Monday night, who should he start?

Game Thread 5/19: Phillies at Cardinals

Game three of four. So last night was a bust. We can all agree on that. It was wet and rainy and really, really not fun. But today is a new day and a new game. Let’s find out who we’ll be seeing. We've got some Saturday matinee baseball for ya.Let's get back in the win column! #BeBold pic.twitter.com/5j2mIdUSLa— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) May 19, 2018 Nick Williams is getting a start again over Aaron Altherr. Andrew Knapp is in for Jorge Alfaro, who is dealing with some soreness. (Get well soon, Jorge!) And there’s nary a Florimon or Valentin in sight. I can get behind...
