Game Three: Giants sweep Phillies

It was another disappointing game by the Phillies this season as they were swept by the Giants for the first time since 2015.

Jake Arrieta pitched six innings of work as he struck out four batters. Arrieta also provided the offense, hitting a home run in the third inning, which would eventually be the only run the team scores in the entire series. Andrew McCutchen hit a 3-run opposite field home run to put the Giants up 5-1.

Soon after that, Buster Posey got a home run of his own to give the Giants another insurance run.

Despite allowing five runs in one inning and being charged with his third loss of the season, Arrieta was pitching lights out.

Arrieta’s solo home run was the first run the Phillies scored in the last twenty-nine innings dating back to Thursday’s win against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Not only that, they’ve scored just five runs in their last five games.
