Phillies allow 12 runs to Milwaukee in second-consecutive night
The Philadelphia Phillies continued their woes Saturday afternoon, losing to the Milwaukee Brewers again.
We all knew that the Phillies weren’t going to play good baseball all season, and that was exactly the case Saturday. For the second consecutive game, Phillies pitchers allowed twelve runs to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Jake Arrieta allowed four runs in five and a third innings, his first start since publically criticizing the team. Over those 5 1/3 innings, he struck out just four and allowed one home run. He was pulled from the game in the sixth inning after he was in a bases-loaded jam.
Gabe Kapler turned to Luis Garcia to get out of the bases loaded jam with the Phillies one-run lead still intact. But, things went the opposite of what everyone had hoped for. Garcia gave up a grand slam to pinch hitter Ji-Man Choi.
Those four runs were charged to Arrieta, who ended up being charged with his fourth loss of the season.

The bullpen didn’t stop getting dismantled there. Adam Morgan came into the game replacing Luis Garcia and things didn’t stop there. Morgan allowed four runs on four hits in only one-third of an inning.
Everything wasn’t so bad, at least for Rhys Hoskins. In his first at-bat since being activated from the disabled list, he smashed a three-run home run to give Philadelphia the lead. Hoskins finished the game going 2-for-4 with three runs batted in. Hoskins had broken his jaw during the recent road trip, but spent minimal time after hitting a foul ball off his chin.
Milwaukee pitcher Brent Suter had himself quite a game. He pitched five innings and allowed three runs – the only runs they would score.
