Joe Mantiply is done after a rough 16 pitches including a walk of Kyle Schwarber to lead off the seventh. He walked two while surrendering three hits and two earned runs while recording just one out. Kyle Nelson takes over on the mound.
Aaron Nola’s stellar day on the mound is done. He finishes with seven strikeouts, three hits and zero runs allowed in six shutout innings and a 6-0 Phillies lead. Jeff Hoffman takes over on the mound for a 1-2-3 seventh with two strikeouts, and the Phillies will lean on their reliable bullpen the rest of the way.
After an intentional walk of Nick Castellanos, Brandon Marsh tacks on another run with an RBI double to score Realmuto. 6-0 Phillies, before the inning mercifully ends for the Diamondbacks.
Merrill Kelly’s day is done. The Diamondbacks starter allowed three hits in 5 2/3 innings. Unfortunately for Kelly, they were all solo home runs. He struck out six in an otherwise stellar day on the mound, but leaves the game trailing, 3-0 with a runner on.
Merrill Kelly counters with a 1-2-3 inning to get out of the fifth. Outside of a pair of Phillies solo shots, this looks like a pitchers’ duel.
