Sports Talk with Brodes: Eflin 10 Strikeouts, Hoskins Hit Into 3 Double Plays in 5-4 Loss
The Philadelphia Phillies lose to the Baltimore Orioles 5-4. Zach Eflin threw six innings, allowed seven hits, four earned-runs, and struck-out a career-high 10 batters. For your fourth/fifth starter, I think he was fine. He needs to clean up his secondary pitches. His curveball and sliders were rocked while his sinker was on display. Andrew Knapp was the reason they scored runs with a 3-4 night and two RBIs. Phil Gosselin started for Scott Kingery. Rhys Hoskins is still in the lineup after his awful start to the season. He didn't help his case by hitting into three 5-4-3 double plays.
