I doubt this was the type of performance you wanted to see against Sixto Sanchez. I’m sure they expected to have a better offensive showing as well. You have to have better offensive games with so much on the line. How did things end up this way? Let’s dive in and discuss!
It was a pretty abysmal offensive game for the Phillies. For a team that has a top-five offense, you just expected more. They only scored one run on three hits. Adam Haseley, Alec Bohm, and Jean Segura were the only Phillies to record a hit. With Andrew Knapp scoring the only run on a sacrifice fly. Here’s hoping we can put together a better offensive game moving forward.
I’m counting Rosso as your starter and not part of the pen. I thought he did well considering the situation. It’s a bullpen, game you get what you can in games like this. He allowed only two runs on two hits, with three walks and three strikeouts. Two runs are more than enough to keep your team in the game. Not to mention combo of David Hale and Connor Brogdon pitched pretty perfectly through four innings. They allowed only two hits and struck out seven batters. You couldn’t have asked for much more of your pitchers in a game like this. One can only hope for more performances like this as The Sprint To The Finish rages on!
