Tyler Flowers homers to lead Braves over Phillies, 3-1

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Flowers homers in support of a solid outing by Dallas Keuchel. A three-run home run by Tyler Flowers and another strong performance from Dallas Keuchel was the difference in a 3-1 win for the Atlanta Braves over the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park. Atlanta would break through against Phillies’ starter Zach Eflin in the fourth. After Freddie Freeman grounded out to start the inning, Josh Donaldson reached on an error by Jean Segura to give the Braves their first baserunner. Matt Joyce continued his good work of late with an opposite...

Game Thread 9/11: Braves at Phillies

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Phillies look to slip past the Braves again with Dallas Keuchel on the mound for Atlanta. Did you spend most of last night screaming, or going “hrrnnnk!” with every pitch? Well, the Phillies won, which gives you a reason to do so again tonight. Will Zach Eflin let the Braves stomp him into dust? Will the Phillies offense light up Dallas Keuchel? Will the bullpen inexplicably hold one of the most potent NL offenses back? Who knows? Literally. The fight continues tonight. #RingTheBell : @NBCSPhilly : @SportsRadioWIP : https://t.co/BdHJmWeOa9 or...

Johan Camargo gets second straight start in the outfield against the Phillies

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Camargo remains in the lineup after Tuesday’s good performance. The Atlanta Braves attempt to get back in the win column Wednesday night when they continue their series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Dallas Keuchel will get the ball tonight for Atlanta and is coming off an extended stretch of good outings. Philadelphia will counter with right-hander Zach Eflin who hasn’t had much success against the Braves so far this season. Johan Camargo will make his second straight start in the outfield on Wednesday sliding across the diamond to left field...

Final Score: Phillies 5, Mets 2 - Throwing the season away

Final Score: Phillies 5, Mets 2 - Throwing the season away

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports The Mets did everything in their power to lose this game. The Mets put forth their typical Sunday ‘best’, falling 5-2 to the Phillies in a critical game in the wild card race. Marcus Stroman had his first quality start as a Met, allowing only two runs in 6+ innings, but the Met offense was stymied by Zach Eflin, a pitcher with a 4.72 FIP on the season. In addition to the stagnant offense, some highly questionable managing in the eighth was the prime culprit in this game. Mickey Callaway short circuited a scoring chance in the top half by bunting, then...

Phillies need to find a bridge to Bohm

The Phillies can’t rely on their top prospect being ready to breakout next year. Perhaps the Phillies biggest flaw this season was relying too much on the potential of young players and hoping they’d breakout. It’s a big reason why a starting rotation with Vince Velasquez Nick Pivetta, and Zach Eflin failed to sustain itself.

MIA 3, PHI 9; Jordan Yamamoto and Wei-Yin Chen struggle to hold back the Phillies

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports Two big innings made the game for the Phills, while the Fish could not supply the same kind of offense. Jordan Yamamoto: 3.2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 1 HR Zach Eflin: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 0 HR The Fish started this game off well enough. Jon Berti singled to lead-off, then he stole second base. Neil Walker was at bat during the steal and when he had the chance he singled to right field. The one run would be the only time the Fish were ahead. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. The fourth inning was the downfall for Jordan Yamamoto. Two back...

Photo by Eric Espada/ Here we are again, on the verge of a hot streak. Congrats to Bryce Harper and his family on the birth of their baby. Congrats to Maikel Franco on being back with the big club temporarily. Congrats to everyone! The Phillies just beat the Red Sox twice and their star player is having a child. Huzzah! Looks like we’re going to see Vince Velasquez and Zach Eflin make starts in this series! Again! Hey, I think I just figured out why this team doesn’t ever win too many games in a row. Anyway, I know the Phillies have wanged every chance they’ve had to get hot and...

Zach Eflin and Nick Pivetta’s struggles put the Phillies in a tough spot

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports When Saturday night’s game between the Phillies and Padres began, the team was riding higher than it had in what felt like months. They had just hired Charlie Manuel to take over as hitting coach, and everyone seemed energized. Bryce Harper’s walk-off grand slam became the signature moment of the 2019 season thus far, the Phils’ offense had awoken and the team was riding a four-game winning streak. For a little while on Saturday night, it seemed like the good times were going to roll. But after jumping ahead 3-0 after three innings, everything began...

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. The game started off well enough, with the Phillies’ offense...
