Phillies fall in series opener vs. Rockies

Zach Eflin took the loss on Thursday for the Phillies
Zach Eflin looked solid through five innings, but the Rockies offense broke out the long ball in the later innings and beat the Phillies in the series opener last night at Coors Field, 6-2.

Eflin finished the night after six innings, surrendering two earned runs on seven hits. He walked three and struck out a pair.

The Phillies collected just five hits in the contest with Cesar Hernandez accounting for three of them. J.T. Realmuto provided a two-run shot in the seventh that gave the Phillies their only runs of the contest.

Bryce Harper worked a walk in the loss to extend his on-base streak to all 18 games this season.



Quinn up, Herrera down
Roman Quinn joined the Phillies yesterday after completing a rehab stint to come back from an oblique strain. To make room, the club placed Odubel Herrera on the 10-day injured list with a strained hamstring. Quinn appeared in 50 games for Philadelphia last season, slashing .267/.324/.420 with two homers and 10 stolen bases during that stretch.

Phillies weekend probables
Friday: Vince Velasquez (0-0, 2.25) vs. German Marquez (2-1, 2.00)
Saturday: Aaron Nola (1-0, 7.45) vs. Antonio Senzatela (1-0, 1.35)
Sunday: Jerad Eickhoff (0-0, 0.00) vs. Jon Gray (1-3, 3.42)
