  • Game #49 - ATL (21-27) -vs- PHI (32-16) - May 27th, 2017 - 1:35 PM - Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, PA




    It's a big return for the Phillies offense down at The Bank this afternoon, basking in the spring's afternoon sun and beating down the Braves, 10-3. Clearly not satisfied with last night's performance, where they mustered just five hits, they nearly triple that total in today's fourteen hit outburst against the visitors.

    Jerad Eickhoff didn't shut the Braves out, but he didn't need to either with all the back-up from the bats. He would allow two to score over seven innings, while striking out six - enough to improve him to 7-0. What a remarkable role he is on. Mike Foltynewicz seemed like his head was anywhere but the ballgame he was pitching in today. The righty would suffer through three rough innings, where he got smacked around for a total of six runs.

    One of the men on the warpath for Philadelphia so far this year has been Cody Asche, who continued his power trip this afternoon with a three-run jack in the very first inning. It would get worse for Atlanta in the second, when Odubel Herrera would jump the yard with a two-run home run to right. In the fourth, it was El Torito striking once more with a two-run single to left-center. In the same frame, it would be Franco adding on another with an RBI single. Herrera wasn't done causing damage, as in the fifth, he would loop a beautiful RBI single into right to make it 9-0. Later in the fifth, Gomez would cap off the Phils' scoring for the day with a sac-fly to left.

    In the sixth, the Braves would finally break through on the scoring front, thanks to a two-run homer to right off the bat of Ender Inciarte - who, let's not forget, spent a cup of coffee with the Phils as a Rule 5 pick in 2013. In the eighth, Freddie Freeman would add another cosmetic run with a solo homer to center. That would be the last run to come across for the game. It's series finale time tomorrow, with a pair of young arms on the hill in Sean Newcomb and Jake Thompson.

      It's another warm spring day in the heart of South Philly, as the Braves and Phillies locked horns for the finale of this series. It was another offense-centric game between these clubs, and while the Braves would outhit the Phillies, it would ultimately be the hometown club securing a series win.

      It was a couple of young starters looking to further prove their worth, however, neither would have what could be classified as a "good" outing. It was Sean Newcomb on the mound for Atlanta, and he looked lost, coughing up six runs - just like Foltynewicz the day prior - over four weak frames. Jake Thompson has looked like one of the best rookie starters in baseball so far in 2017, but he hit a speed bump today - surrendering four runs in five-and-two-thirds. But somehow, he still would manage to get a "W".

      Despite the end result, it was the Braves getting on the scoreboard first, thanks to a first inning sac-fly off the bat of Stubbs. It was a rapid response from the Phils, who would tie it in the bottom-half with a looong single from Franco to center, bounding off the fence. In the second, it would be Freddy Galvis displaying some rarely seen power - crushing a two-run shot to right-center to put Philly on top.

      "I don't connect too often with pitches well enough to send them over the wall, but... that's one of the greatest feelings, man. Watching it fly out and switching into that jog afterwards... it's amazing. I hope I get to experience that a lot more this year." -- Freddy Galvis

      In the fourth, one of the rising youngsters in baseball, J.P. Crawford, would cause more of a ruckus - blasting a homer of his own, but a three-run shot instead of two. The Bravos would start climbing back in the fifth, getting another run on the board with a Dansby Swanson RBI single down the third baseline - showing why he is another young shortstop to keep your eyes on. After the Braves would score another, Josh Rutledge would rip a ball just fair down the left field line in the sixth for a solo dinger, which would cut the deficit to two.

      Maikel Franco would pick up another RBI for himself in the seventh, beating out a drawn-in infield for a single to center to push the lead back to three. That would be all Philly would need, as it was Carson Smith's time to shine in the ninth, after a scoreless eighth. Smith would do exactly what you would want out of a closer, wrapping things up fairly easily for his twenty-second save of the year. It's the Phillies playing host again starting tomorrow, with the Padres visiting for a four-game set.

        • Alright guys, so, as we all know, we are less than a week out from MLB17. And I want to actually get the rest of this season posted, but since I've been short on time lately, and probably will be for the foreseeable future, I'm gonna alter my updates a bit to try to breeze through the rest of this.

                    Still not sure. I enjoy where my roster is at with this franchise, but at the same time, I kinda wanna do something new with a different team/ballpark. Still got a while 'til OSFM drops, so I'll probably decide what I'm doing by then.

                    • League News -- May 31st, 2017


                      (AP) -- We have some news from around the Majors today, with the Phillies opting to demote (2B) Scott Kingery back to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and calling up (3B) Lonnie Chisenhall to take his place on the roster. Chisenhall already had an immediate impact, driving in a run in tonight's game against the Padres.

                      And in trade news: the Chicago Cubs have traded (SP) Kyle Hendricks [77, B] (3-1, 3.68 ERA, 51 K, 66.0 IP) and (C) Wilson Ramos [74, B] (.287/.321/..613, 7 HR, 19 RBI, 84 PA) to the Houston Astros for (RP) Ken Giles [86, B] (0-0, 5.40 ERA, 16 K, 15.0 IP). This is a big boost for the Chicago bullpen, and makes them ever scarier.
