MLB Wild Card: Phillies defeated by the Blue Jays in a fifth straight loss

The Phillies opened their last home of the season in a familiar fashion, losing for the 16th time in their last 20 games against teams over 0.500.

They haven’t been able to play at their competition level since the All-Star break, growing up for clubs like the Nationals, Marlins, Pirates and Reds.

The foul made a spirited effort to come back from two massive deficits with the fifth of four and five of the eighth but still fell. we will Short in an 18-11 loss to the Blue Jays.

The Brewers helped the Phillies by blowing up a late lead into the Mets, meaning the Phillies’ lead over the first team knocked out in the playoff race is still two and a half games.

But it was a rough night for the Phils staff, allowing the Blue Jays to hit base in 27 of 53 board appearances and score in eight of nine innings.

“You would never want to start a house like this,” Bryce Harper said. “The start of the promo wasn’t available tonight. You’ll get those slacks but you’ll move on to tomorrow.”

Kyle Gibson did not play well but also got hurt from his defence. Bryson Stott threw a ball into the bunker in the first half for one of his fouls. The Blue Jays scored three goals in the opening frame over Homer Matt Chapman.

They scored two more goals in the second half, which started with Kyle Schwarber losing a can of corn in the spotlight for Danny Janssen’s “double”.

Stott made a key foul in the sixth inning when Velez needed a stop in the inning, throwing a ball into the ground at a routine goalkeeper by Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

The Blue Jays have had seven pairs, triples, two homers and 21 hits in the night – and that’s even though Guerrero and Bo Bichette have gone together for 2 for 11. Only the two times in the last 78 years have the Phillies allowed as many runs, hits and hits as possible. The additional rule was a 24-4 loss to the Mets in 2018 and the famous 23-22 win over the Cubs in 1979.

“It sounded like the night that JT and I aligned with their approach,” Gibson said. “Every throw I took in the hit zone was hit with a base hit.”

Amidst all the balls getting hit hard by their team, Phillies lost quarterback Brandon Marsh, who came off with a bruised knee after running and jumping into the wall left center in a double by Janssen. He will be reassessed on Wednesday but Velez does not believe there is any damage to the ligament.

Dalton Guthrie replaced Marsh and made his first major league game in the fifth. Schwarber hit 40 shot, three runs into the eighth inning. JT Realmuto went 5 for 5 with a double shot and ninth, which is No. 20.

This is a very important home for Phils aged 80-67 with 15 games remaining. They have another game with the Blue Jays and four with the Braves this week. Both opponents have a lot to play for – Toronto want to maintain their position at the top of the AL wild card standings to maintain their home ground advantage in the first round, while the Braves play behind the Mets to lead the division and first. -Goodbye tour.

“Tonight we end up in a playoff and I think you should stay in the fight, show up tomorrow and go win a game,” Gibson said. “We’re still in the driver’s seat. It still depends on how we do it, not how anyone else does.”

Phils will see a good start to the lot throughout the week. On Wednesday, they will face Kevin Gusman, who has the best run-to-walk ratio in the majors. They get a slight break by losing Atlanta’s Spencer Strider (pervert), but that’s a bit of a relief as they’ll face Max Fried instead.

Zach Wheeler returns Wednesday after missing five people starting with a forearm infection. Expect a short start – two or three rounds – before finally making way for Noah Syndergaard.

This should turn around quickly so the Phillies avoid a crash again in September. They have lost five in a row and are 7-9 this month.

“You go through some lulls in the season and that’s not the best place to go,” Harper said. “But at the same time, we know what kind of team we are. We know we can take on good teams. Scoring 11 runs tonight, you’re not really doing that against teams like the Toronto Blue Jays. We lost, but hopefully it’s a stepping stone to tomorrow”.
