Game 30 - 2018 Phillies Team Issue #27 Aaron Nola

Phillies 6, Marlins 0
Game 30 - Wednesday Night, May 2nd in Miami
Record - 17-13, 3rd place, 1 1/2 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Aaron Nola turned in an ace-like performance in this 6-0 series finale win over the Marlins.

What It Means:  The Phillies avoided the series sweep and they'll open up a three-game series in Washington on Friday night.

What Happened:  Nola needed 101 pitches to get through 7 1/3 innings, allowing four hits while striking out seven.  Cesar Hernandez led off the game with a home run (3) and while five more runs would follow, that turned out to be the only run support Nola needed.

Rhys Hoskins is mired in a horrible slump.  He went 1 for 5 in this game with four strikeouts and he's 2 for his last 20.

Featured Card:  This is Nola's card from this year's team-issued photo card set.
