Phillies manager Joe Girardi sacked, Aaron Nola loses vs Seafarers – NBC10 Philadelphia

Joe Girardi retired from the Phillies’ loss to the Mariners after a failed call originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

The Phillies fell behind in the first inning Tuesday in Seattle and Joe Girardi’s night didn’t last long. The Phils’ manager was ejected in the second round, arguing with a call at first base in a 5-4 loss to the Mariners that contained four Phillies errors.

The play that led to Girardi’s ejection was a blown call that should have resulted in an out. With an out and a man on second base in the second inning, Adam Frazier hit a ball hard to the right of Jean Segura. Segura made an impressive dive stop, initially throwing himself on one knee with pinpoint accuracy. Rhys Hoskins caught the ball but it was quickly removed by Frazier who was ruled safe. Luis Torrens scored in that game, giving the Mariners a three-run lead. Girardi argued vehemently that the piece could not be reviewed and was thrown out by crew chief Bill Miller.

An inning earlier, Aaron Nola started the night with a singles and a doubles before being plagued by bad luck on weak contact. Eugenio Suarez broke his bat while hitting a soft liner on a cleared second base to score the first run. Julio Rodriguez tapped on the third baseline to overtake the second.

The Phillies were beaten by 2021 Mariners/Cy Young winner/world-class grunt left-hander Robbie Ray until Nick Castellanos opened the fifth inning with a solo homer to the left, his fifth of the year. They scored again in the fifth when Segura went for a run while walking, advanced to second with a flyball and then advanced two more pockets on two wild pitches from Ray. Segura had another great night, later hitting a home ring in the ninth inning to set the Phillies on a run.

After a run in the sixth, the Phils chased Ray and had an opportunity to level the game after Bryce Harper doubled and stole third place and Castellanos walked. JT Realmuto, a .247 hitter in four seasons as the Phillie with two outs and a runner in goal position, gently tapped the mound to end the threat.

The Mariners made two more runs against Nola in the sixth inning, which was just enough. Hoskins hit a solo homer in the seventh and Segura went deep in the ninth for the third time in as many days, but the Phillies stayed close.

They are 13-17 and head into the series finale on Wednesday at 3:40pm. Left-hander Bailey Falter makes a points start in place of Zack Wheeler, who is on the Covid injured list and is currently off the West team. Logan Gilbert (4-0, 1.36) goes for the Mariners.
