Notes From The Phillies' 7-6 Loss To Washington

Notes From The Phillies' 7-6 Loss To Washington

I don't think that's unique to the Phillies. I saw it in the dirt, then looked up about halfway to third (base) and thought, 'Oh, great.' And he threw a strike to third. The weather has been cold and wet and windy and really, really dumb.

Scherzer, the reigning NL Cy Young Award victor, waited until the fourth game to take the mound because a broken knuckle set him back in spring training.

Scherzer retired the first 10 batters before Howie Kendrick hit an opposite-field double in the fourth. He ran into trouble when he walked two batters in the seventh.

Vince Velasquez (0-1) struck out 10, but allowed four runs and five hits in four innings.

"That's one of the biggest parts of playing at this level - being prepared, being able to execute pitches, staying poised", Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said before Friday's game. "We're still in the process of figuring out where to slot guys". "That's six weeks behind the bare minimum of usually where I'm at".

"You've got to remember, the first time I picked up a baseball was the first day of spring (training)", Scherzer said Thursday.

But Scherzer's bullpen almost cost him.

Aaron Altherr hit a two-run homer off Sammy Solis in the seventh to get the Phillies within 7-4 and Freddy Galvis hit a two-run shot off Blake Treinen in the ninth to cut it to 7-6. Koda Glover escaped adventure in the eighth.

While a good portion of the lineup has struggled - five of the eight position players came into Saturday night with a batting average under.182 in the early going - Joseph's has seemed to be the most pronounced.

Texas spending big on border security despite Trump promises
The Texas House on Thursday voted by more than 2-to-1 to ban use of state funds for school vouchers "or any similar scheme". The major difference between the two budgets bills is that the House's proposal would dip into the state's rainy day fund.

Making his first big league appearance in three years, the 26-year-old right-hander started strongly and was given a lead when Curtis Granderson singled in a run in the first against Wei-Yin Chen. "It would've been devastating to lose that game".

But things weren't always so ho-hum for the Nationals in a narrow 7-6 win over the Phillies, who have lost three straight. Because Velasquez also surrendered home runs to Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy, an early exit was the end result of his season debut.

Ross started for the Triple-A Syracuse Chiefs this afternoon, lasting just 2 ⁄3 innings, over which he gave up six hits, four runs, three earned and three walks in a 75-pitch, 47-strike outing.

"I got back to the dugout and everybody was like, 'Wow, nothing you can do there, '" Stassi said. It was elite command, an ability to spot his fastball wherever he wanted, and a slurvy curveball that can completely freeze hitters. "I got 10 strikeouts, but that wasn't enough".

Scherzer finally gave up a run in the sixth inning when Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera singled in second baseman Cesar Hernandez, who had doubled with one out.

"I'm just happy to be back in Philadelphia".

Washington entered the eighth with a 2-0 edge thanks to homers from Adam Eaton and Jayson Werth. They will have a pitching staff of young arms, and top draft pick Mickey Moniak may be nearing the majors by then.

Mazara is hitting.588 through four games, including 3 for 5 in this one.

On June 5 last season, Nola fired six shutout innings with nine strikeouts against the Brewers to lower his ERA to 2.65 through 12 starts.
