As beautiful as that final score was , things didn start out quite as smoothly as we might have hoped. Today was Nola day, typically a day when Phillies fans can look to bounce back from any unfortunate loss(es) that may have preceded Nola day, though that has been somewhat less true this season. While, yes, this was a solid bounce back day, it wasn because of Aaron Nola.Today was a day to celebrate the bats, which came alive in a big way to bail out Nola quite frankly terrible performance. The first three innings were a back and forth battle, with the Phillies taking the lead in the first on a Alec Bohm hit-by-pitch which scored the starting center fielder after he had singled and Bryce Harper and Andrew McCutchen had walked to load the bases. Luckily, Sacramento born Rhys Hoskins has decided to take this trip back to his home state to emerge from the slump he was in the last few weeks like Khaleesi emerging from the fire with her dragons. The Phillies bullpen would close out the game with four shutout innings by Brogdon, Alvarado, Bradley and Hale in mopup duty in the 9th , allowing only one hit through those four innings while striking out 4.The offense, as one might have noticed from the header of this article, was not finished. In the 7th inning Bohm and Luke Williams led off the inning, respectively, with singles, followed by a Torreyes walk to load the bases. In Summary:While shows of offense are fun to watch, and any time you double up an opponent that scores 6 runs is fun, especially so when youe missing your starting shortstop , the fact that all six of those Giant runs came in 2+ innings of an Aaron Nola start isn the most comforting feeling. If this Phillies team is to put some wins together to make a run at the dreadful NL East theye going to need more of vintage Nola and less of the version wee seen all too often this season.If you were in either of the Philadelphia or San Francisco areas the only way to watch this game was on the Peacock streaming app, featuring a party-line of Phillies and Giants announcers. Listening to Miller reminds me of what it like to have a Hall of Fame caliber announcer do your daily play-by-play and boy does it just improve the experience of watching a televised game. Rollins is also quite good in the color commentary role, though I feel he got enough money and other interests that it isn something wel ever see him do full time.Tomorrow is the rubber game, pitting Spencer Howard (edit: Spencer Howard start will be skipped and Zach Efiln will start due to the upcoming 3 off days between the 17th and the 24th which will allow the Phillies to adjust their starting rotation) against Sammy Long (I assume no relation to Howie or Chris), who is making his major league debut, which of course means that the Phillies may well be flummoxed at the plate.
