Pure Heartbreak: Nationals 4, Phillies 3

Pure Heartbreak: Nationals 4, Phillies 3

The less we say about this one, the better. For about three hours, this was supposed to be a recap about the Phillies’ above-average defense, Aaron Nola’s impressive night, and a much-needed victory heading into Sunday’s matinee against the Washington Nationals. Juan Soto had other plans. This was a heartbreaker. The Phillies, the team in desperate need of a win, had a second chance to make a first impression coming out of the break. They did not do that. Instead, this game had all the hallmarks of the 2019 Phillies. The offense looked competent for a few innings, worked some counts,...

Jake Arrieta gives club best chance to win in rotation, says Kapler

Jake Arrieta gives club best chance to win in rotation, says Kapler

Jake Arrieta has had a rough go of things lately, and now it's become evident he's pitching with a bone spur in his throwing elbow. That's bad news for a pitching staff in desperate need of an anchor behind ace Aaron Nola. Manager Gabe Kapler said on Wednesday though that he's going to keep Arrieta in the rotation. "He's having a harder time getting extended the way he normally does, especially on that curveball. This is limiting his ability to throw the ball where he wants to throw it," Kapler told SportsRadio 94WIP on Wednesday. "All of that said, Jake is a competitor, and for the Phillies,...

Bruce Cuts Loose: Phillies 8, Mets 3

Bruce Cuts Loose: Phillies 8, Mets 3

Heading into the All-Star break on a high note The Phillies closed out the unofficial first half of the season Sunday with an 8-3 win over the Mets that probably conformed pretty well to the template club brass had in mind when they put this team together last winter. The offense banged out 13 hits, including three homers; ace Aaron Nola cruised; and everything else was more or less good enough. The team shook off any lingering effects of last night’s frustrating loss by jumping on Mets starter Zack Wheeler, going single-lineout-single-double-double-single to score four runs before taking...

Mets vs. Phillies: Aaron Nola will get it done before the break

“Wah! Wah! Wah!” Megan Rapinoe called out critics who said teammate Alex Morgan’s celebratory sip of English tea was disrespectful. A day later Wah-pinoe was the one whining. She is complaining the Women’s World Cup final has to share the spotlight with not one but two other men’s soccer finals where, as Morgan says, they...

Phillies: Can Aaron Nola lead team to second-half success?

Aaron Nola pitched one of his best games as a member of the Phillies Tuesday night, displaying how much of a factor he can be. When Aaron Nola was at his best in 2018, you could pretty much pencil in a win for the Phillies. He had a 17-6 record, and the team was 22-11 […] Phillies: Can Aaron Nola lead team to second-half success? - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Failing the test: Braves 9, Phillies 2

In one of the biggest starts of his career, Nick Pivetta came up small One night after Aaron Nola pitched the team to an important win over the Braves, the Phillies turned to Nick Pivetta in the second game of the series. Pivetta hasn’t come close to having the breakthrough season that many predicted, but there was hope that he would deliver a strong start against the Phillies’ division rivals. Instead, he came up small in key situations and allowed two home runs. The result was a disappointing 9-2 loss to the Braves. The first three innings went well for Pivetta, with only one runner...

Trio of Taters from Riley, Donaldson, and Joyce Lead Braves to 9-2 Win over Phillies

Bryse Wilson delivers six solid innings to silence Philly offense. Whoever said you have to wait until the 4th to enjoy some good fireworks? Thankfully no one passed that message along to the Braves, who used the long ball to support starter Bryse Wilson in a 9-2 victory over the Phillies. One night after being silenced by Aaron Nola, the Braves were glad to see Nick Pivetta on the bump. However, while the fireworks would eventually commence, the game actually started off much like last night. Both Pivetta and Wilson were on their games early. While Wilson allowed a couple of walks,...

Braves Look For Offensive Fireworks to Even Series with Phillies

Atlanta hopes Bryse Wilson’s latest rotation audition is his best one yet. While not ideal, last night’s loss should not be one we let linger. Aaron Nola seems to be a talent that gets lost in the shuffle when it comes to discussing the National League’s best young pitchers. He certainly was on a mission to validate that statement last night, and he did. The Braves were simply shut down by a talented pitcher who threw one of the best games of his season last night. Now, Atlanta finds itself in a familiar position in which they have prospered in many times before. Atlanta has now...

The 2018-19 Off Season In Review

The 2018-19 Off Season In Review

A mid-season review of the major moves the Phillies made this winter. In 2018, the Phillies were lead by 25-year-olds Aaron Nola and Rhys Hoskins, 26-year-old Odubel Herrera and 32-year-old Carlos Santana, who is now better known for smashing a tv during a game than for what he did on the field. That was the way of the 2018 Philadelphia Phillies. The team’s primary leaders were either very young or couldn’t keep their cool in the clubhouse. Herrera, Nola and Hoskins had 888 combined games of experience through the 2018 season. And while Santana had over 1200 games himself, his penchant...

Phillies take opener against Braves behind stellar outing from Aaron Nola

Aaron Nola has battled his share of adversity on the mound this season, but it seems now things are trending back towards his Cy Young-esque output from a year ago. Nola had full command of his fastball on Tuesday, mowing through an impressive Atlanta lineup that is coming off a 20-win June, the most wins in a month for the organization in six years. He scattered four hits, struck out eight, and walked three while tossing a career-high 117 pitches in an impressive 2-0 win over the division-leading Braves at SunTrust Park. "That's a big win tonight for us, especially over here against these...
