Preview: Struggling Phillies look to avoid sweep, Bailey Falter on the mound at 9:40
The Phillies, who have now been outscored 25-3 in the last 15 innings, take the field tonight at 9:40, looking to avoid being swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Bailey Falter (2-3, 4.41 ERA) gets the ball for the Phillies, going up against Tommy Henry (3-2, 3.25 ERA) for Arizona.
Aaron Nola got banged up on Tuesday night, allowing eight earned runs and ten hits while striking out just five batters in four innings pitched. The Phillies bullpen actually held down the fort once Nola left the game, going three innings, allowing just three hits, and striking out 2.
Nick Maton would make the score a lot worse, as he allowed four hits and three earned runs in a game that was over five innings prior. The Phillies offense logged just two hits off of Zac Gallen, who dominated the Fightins, going seven innings strong, striking out seven, and walking one.
A great month of August fell off the tracks in the last series, and the Phillies will now look to avoid getting swept by the 61-67 Arizona Diamondbacks.
