Giovanny Gallegos blows game once again

Giovanny Gallegos is fun to watch when he is on, but the mistakes made when he’s not right can be just devastating.

The Phillies and Cardinals were tied at zero all when Gallegos came in to pitch the ninth.
with Mickey Moniak on base, Alec Bohn knocked a sacrifice fly to, once again, score the winning run. Gallegos is now 2-3 on the season.

Dakota Hudson had a good start going six innings, giving up two hits and two walks while striking out four batters.

Genesis Cabrera had a good two-thirds of an inning of work. He walked two but also struck out two batters. Jordan Hicks closed out the seventh inning. Ryan Helsley pitched the eighth inning, giving up only a hit and a walk.

It was good to see Hudson have a better start on Saturday. Despite the ultimate result, let’s hope he builds on it in future outings.
