Notes From The Phillies’ 7-5 Win Over Los Angeles

The Philadelphia Phillies won their third straight game on Wednesday night, taking down the Dodgers 7-5. Their record improves to 61-91.

On The Mound

  • Jake Thompson started and pitched five innings, allowing one run on three hits and three walks.
  • Kevin Siegrist pitched a scoreless sixth.
  • Victor Arano gave up a run in the seventh, and Hoby Milner gave up two more in the same inning.
  • Ricardo Pinto finished off the seventh.
  • Luis Garcia pitched a scoreless eighth and got the win.
  • Hector Neris picked up the save.

At The Plate

  • The offense put up seven runs on six hits.
  • Once again, Aaron Altherr supplied a big part of the offense, going 3-4 and driving in two.
  • Altherr hit a home run for the third straight game, a two-run shot in the seventh.
  • Tommy Joseph started at first, going 2-4 with a double and a homer.
  • Cesar Hernandez went 0-3 with a walk.
  • Freddy Galvis and Rhys Hoskins each took an 0-4.
  • Maikel Franco played third, and went 0-4.
  • Andrew Knapp returned to the lineup, going 1-3 and driving in a run.

Final Thoughts

Quietly, Hector Neris has developed some consistency as the team’s closer. He’s converted his last 16 save opportunities.
