Nola, Turner Tame the Tigers for Third Straight Win

Mandatory Credit: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Aaron Nola flirted with a no-hitter and Trea Turner crushed two home runs as the Philadelphia Phillies tamed the Detroit Tigers. 8-3, on Monday night in South Philly.  

Where to begin?!

Nola was exceptional on Monday night. The much-maligned Phillies starter took a no-hitter into the 7th before giving up a 3-run homer to former Phillie Nick Maton. Nola only allowed one hit while walking three and striking out twelve. The Phillies bullpen combo of Seranthony Dominguez and Andrew Vasquez each threw a scoreless inning to cap off the night. 

Now, on to the offensive side of the ledger.  

Trea Turner went 4-for-5 with two homers –including one that made it into the upper deck in left field–three RBIs, and three runs scored.  In fact, the Phils’ 2-3-4-5 hitters –Nick Castellanos, Bryce Harper, Turner, and J.T. Realmuto– went 9-for-18 with two homers, two doubles, seven RBIs, and six runs scored.  

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