Diamondbacks 5, Phillies 4
Game 66 - Friday Night, June 16th in Philadelphia
Record - 22-44, 5th place, 18 1/2 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: A three-run seventh inning from the Diamondbacks sunk the Phillies and Aaron Nola.
What It Means: The one-game winning streak is over.
What Happened: Nola was in control until the seventh when he allowed a lead-off single and then a two-run home run to Gregor Blanco to tie the game at four. Pat Neshek came on in relief of Nola, but the go-ahead run ultimately scored on a sacrifice fly.
The big hit for the Phillies had come an inning earlier when Maikel Franco hit a two-run double to give the team a temporary two run lead. Cameron Rupp hit a solo home run (5) in the fifth.
Featured Card: Let's remember happier times. The run allowed by Neshek in the seventh inning had been inherited from Nola, and Neshek escaped without a run being charged to him. His ERA is now 0.69, which is the lowest by a Phillies reliever through his first 25 innings of a season since Brad Lidge's 0.72 ERA in 2008. (Via Meghan Montemurro on Twitter.)
