After getting a solid performance from their 2nd year pitcher, the Phillies bullpen coughed up a lead and will force them now to try and avoid the sweep on Thursday afternoon.
Cincinnati gets the benefit of grabbing a hot start, as they are now 2-0.
The Reds saw Scott Schebler play the hero role on Wednesday as he hit a walkoff 2 run double in the bottom of the 9th to steal a 3-2 win for the Reds. The Reds offense has been encouraging through the first couple games as they are getting production from guys not named Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips.
That will be a major key for them not just here against Phili, but overall on the season.
The Reds will get a glimpse in to the future as #2 prospect Robert Stephenson takes the hill on Thursday to go for the sweep. Stephenson is expected to do big things for the Reds, but his spring wasn’t very telling. This past spring, Stephenson gave up 12 hits and walked 7 in 10 1/3 innings as his ERA sat at 9.58.
The Phillies are proving why they don’t have many believers in them. After Nola turned in a solid effort, the Phillies closer, Dalier Hinojosa, blew the save and wasted the solid start.
Starting 0-2 is nothing new to this team and things will be even more tough on them Thursday with rain expected in the forecast. With the rain coming, the offense, which is already struggling, will have an even tougher time hitting.
The Phillies will send Charlie Morton, who was with Pittsburgh last season. Morton finished 2015 with a 9-9 record. His ERA was the biggest concern as his ERA was inflated to 4.81. Morton has had a bit of success against the Reds in Great American Ballpark as he’s gone 4-2 there.
