Huge weekend for Phillies down in Atlanta; NL East lead on the line

Huge weekend for Phillies down in Atlanta; NL East lead on the line

The Phillies head to Atlanta to open a crucial three-game set with the division-leading Braves on Friday at SunTrust Park. The Braves enter the weekend with sole possession of the top spot with a 1 1/2 game lead.The Phillies are coming off a series loss at home to the Diamondbacks, including a woeful offensive performance on Wednesday night in a 2-0 loss that negated an outstanding effort from starter Zach Eflin. The club is 5-5 over its last ten games. "I think we have better baseball in us than this recent stretch of games," manager Gabe Kapler said following Wednesday's loss. "We have more...

Merrilly we get shutout: Diamondbacks 2, Phillies 0

Merrilly we get shutout: Diamondbacks 2, Phillies 0

Merrill Kelly out-dueled Zach Eflin and the Phillies suffered a shutout loss Zach Eflin was very good on Wednesday night. He pitched eight strong innings, striking out nine batters. Unfortunately, the Diamondbacks’ pitchers - led by starter Merrill Kelly - were even better as the Phillies fell by a score of 2-0. Eflin made it clear from the start that he was in top form. He struck out the side in the first inning, and thanks to the Diamondbacks’ lone single being erased by a double play, faced the minimum number of batters through four. Zach Eflin threw 13 pitches in the first inning....

Another series win is on the table as the Phillies finish up with the Snakes. I hope you like divisional games, because after tonight, that’s all you’re going to get for a while after this series finale with the D-Backs. The Phillies are sending Zach Eflin to the mound, who, rotationally speaking, is at this point is probably their best chance at winning. Here’s hoping the Phillies take this series with Arizona before it’s Braves-Nationals-Marlins-Mets-Marlins-Braves-Mets-Nationals, with oh yeah, the freaking Dodgers waiting on the other end. A series win is on the line tonight...

Phillies return home to Philly, host Reds for a three-game weekend set

It was a tough trip west, but the Phillies come back to Philadelphia and Citizens Bank Park riding back-to-back wins over the Padres to wrap up the jaunt. The club welcomes the Reds for a three-game weekend set. Tyler Mahle will make the start in the series opener for the Reds, fresh off holding the Nationals to three runs in five innings in a win earlier this week. He'll be opposed by Zach Eflin who returns to the rotation after missing his last start due to a back issue. He's posted a 2.64 ERA over his last five starts but has struggled for his career against the Reds, surrendering 11 runs...

Brandon Woodruff allows one hit in 8 innings, Brewers dominate Phillies, 8-1

We need to start considering Brandon Woodruff as the #2019BrewersAce W: Brandon Woodruff (7-1)L: Zach Eflin (5-5)HR: PHI - Andrew Knapp (1); MIL - Ben Gamel 2 (3, 4), Yasmani Grandal (10), Christian Yelich (21), Hernan Perez (5) This spring, the Brewers said it was time to see what Brandon Woodruff could do in the starting rotation, sink or swim. Not only is Woodruff swimming, he may be the Brewers’ best starting pitcher as we hit the season milestone of Memorial Day. Woodruff took a perfect game into the 6th inning, allowed just one hit in 8 innings, struck out 10 batters without giving...

Your closer: Juan Nicasio: Cubs 3, Phillies 2

Your closer: Juan Nicasio: Cubs 3, Phillies 2

The Phillies asked Juan Nicasio to secure a victory. Hilarity did not ensue What if I told you that Juan Nicasio pitched the ninth inning for the Phillies? You’d probably assume that the game was a blowout, and Nicasio was simply getting in a garbage-time inning. What if I told you that Nicasio was brought into the game with the Phillies trying to protect a one-run lead? You’d probably assume that the Phillies lost. And you’d be right! Zach Eflin overcame a shaky first inning to give the Phillies a gutty six-inning performance. He was in position to earn a win after Andrew McCutchen...

Remember last night? Just do that, but tonight. No one who was aware of Jake Arrieta’s recent starts or the Phillies up-and-down nature in the last two series would have expected last night’s outcome: Beating the Cubs at Wrigley Field after coming from behind. Tonight, they’ll try to continue that success with Zach Eflin facing Jose Quintana. Starting an hour earlier than last night for game two of our series in Chicago.
