It was a tale of two Aaron Nola‘s this week. On Monday, Nola threw six scoreless innings and struck out six in the Phils 3-2 loss against the Marlins.
Many were hoping Nola had turned the corner after several poor performances before the all-star break, but the righty struggled mightily in his next start against the Pirates.
He gave up six earned runs and had poor command in the Phils 7-4 loss on Saturday. Hopefully this is just some growing pains and he will get back on track soon.
Jerad Eickhoff struggled again this week, giving up five earned runs in five innings pitched against Miami.
Brett Oberholtzer, Daniel Stumpf and Jeanmar Gomez struggled out of the pen this week. The trio combined to give up six earned runs in 6.1 innings pitched. It would turn out to be Stumpf’s final appearance with the Phillies, who returned the Rule 5 pick to the Royals.
