Record - 65-52, Tied for 1st place, 5 games ahead of the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: Freddy Galvis hit his first career grand slam off Jake Arrieta in the 3rd and it was all downhill from there.
What It Means: As Jim Salisbury summarized in his Tweet, the Phillies went 2-4 on this road trip scoring just 15 runs. They were on their way to a third shutout until scoring three runs in the 8th inning of this game. The Phillies will face off against the best team in baseball at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday night.
What Happened: Arrieta struggled through five innings, allowing five runs on eight hits. The team looked sloppy in the field, committing two official errors, but making many more mental mistakes and minor miscues. Nick Williams and Carlos Santana hit back-to-back RBI doubles in the 8th.
Featured Card: Galvis continued to punish his former team, going 2 for 4 in this game with 1 of the 6 stolen bases against Phillies catchers.
