Perhaps the Phillies biggest flaw this season was relying too much on the potential of young players and hoping they’d breakout.

Ef minus: Padres 5, Phillies 3

Zach Eflin couldn’t make it through four innings | Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Zach Eflin’s return to the starting rotation resulted in the end of the Phillies’ win streak Earl Weaver once said “Momentum is the next day’s starting pitcher.” Zach Eflin showed just how true that is on Saturday night. Coming after a stint in the bullpen, his poor start - combined with an equally bad relief appearance by Nick Pivetta - resulted in the end to the Phillies’ four-game winning streak as they lost to the Padres 5-3.
