The Phillies have now won six consecutive contests and five in a row since the firing of former manager Joe Girardi and Rob Thomson’s subsequent promotion to interim-manager. Thomson is the first manager in the majors to win his first five games since Jim Leyland did so for the Detroit Tigers in 2006. He’s the first Phillies manager to do so since 1915, when Pat Moran won his first eight.
It was vintage Aaron Nola in Milwaukee on Wednesday night, as the veteran hurler tossed eight sharp innings allowing no earned runs and only six hits. Nola, the National League leader, struck out six and cruised throwing 74 of his 104 pitches for strikes. Nola successfully made it through the night without allowing a home run for the second time in his last three starts.
With Nola logging his best start of the season, the game was essentially over when Bryson Stott and Rhys Hoskins both hit two run home runs in the 3rd inning giving the Phillies an insurmountable 4-0 lead. Odubel Herrera added a solo shot in the 5th inning, his fourth of the season.
Bryson Stott had the best game of his young career going 4-4, with 3 runs and 2 RBI. The Phillies 9 through 3 hitters in the lineup combined for ten hits and 9 RBI including four runs in a big 9th inning.
The Phillies will look to get a sweep in their second consecutive series when they take on the Milwaukee Brewers in the last game of the three game set on Thursday afternoon.
The first pitch is scheduled for 2:10 pm, with Zach Eflin taking the mound for the Phillies.
