The Philadelphia Phillies went 0-for-14 with runners in scoring position and had two errors in a disappointing 4-0 Mother’s Day loss to the Colorado Rockies

Aaron Nola took the loss for the Phillies, but the “L” wasn’t indicative of how he pitched.  Nola’s line: 7 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR.  The Phillies defense let him down, especially in the 1st inning allowing the Rockies to score on a throwing error by Trea Turner on a routine double play.

Phillies hitters were kept off balance by Colorado starter Kyle Freeland.  Freeland’s line: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K.  The Rockies were aided by an inconsistent strike zone from home plate umpire Ryan Willis.  

Phillies manager Rob Thomson was ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the 6th.

Things got heated in the 8th when Colorado pitcher Jake Bird taunted the Phillies dugout. Bryce Harper took exception and stormed from the dugout and both benches followed. There was a lot of yellings and shoving but no punches where thrown. Harper and Bird were both ejected.

Here’s a closer look at how they scored, stats and facts from the game, and what’s on deck for the Phillies.

COL B1: C.J. Cron grounds into a force out, Bryson Stott to Trea Turner. Jurickson Profar scores on a throwing error by Turner (COL-2, PHI-0)
