Josh Donaldson hits a 4️⃣3️⃣2️⃣-foot rocket to chase Aaron Nola.
What an embarrassing performance from Aaron Nola.
We can talk all we want about the bullpen and Matt Klentak trading for another starter, but none of it will matter if Aaron Nola doesn’t wake up.
J.T. Realmuto also out of the game, an inning after taking a foul ball to the manly parts. So that's Realmuto and Bruce out of the game and another concerning start from Aaron Nola. You thought last night was bad...
Aaron Nola serves up a three-run homer to Josh Donaldson. Braves lead, 5-4. #Phillies pitchers continue to give up home runs in bunches.
this season was never going to work with Aaron Nola giving you this performance. bats aren't meeting expectations but with no Nola, it wouldn't matter
Josh Donaldson was out here around 3:00 taking early BP and it looks to have paid off. He's 3 for 3 and just ended Aaron Nola's night with a 3-run homer. Continues to be a confounding season for Nola. He hasn't looked like this since 2016.

Not sure which is worse...
DeMarco Murray’s 2015 season
Aaron Nola’s 2019 season
Oh-No-la!!! Aaron Nola gives up 3 run HR and Phillies 2 run lead gone
Nola pulled in the 5th after allowing 5 runs
Aaron Nola seems to have ZERO confidence in any of his pitches.
The change-up was lethal and impossible to hit but is now just a big, fat, greasy meatball. The two-seamer he used to paint the corners with is flat.
Just a disappointing season for Nola.
The Phillies did develop Rhys Hoskins, Aaron Nola and Scott Kingery. They haven’t developed like the Braves, but they have developed some really good players. https://t.co/l8kfd5RxX8
Really shitty effort from Aaron Nola tonight. Not expecting him to be an ace every outing, but he’s pitching like the 5th starter. #Phillies #angst
Could someone please explain to me why Aaron Nola stinks? #Phillies
Oh my sweets haha, Aaron Nola will 100% NOT be joining the pen haha
Max Fried has been shelled in his last two starts #Braves Aaron Nola can’t get past 4 innings tonite, he’s been a disappointment this season giving up too many runs #Phillies
And the craziest development of the season is Aaron Nola is closer to a 4 than a 1
Aaron Nola having a Don Carmen like season. Get it together, “ace” #phillies
All the Phillies fans hating on their pitcher Aaron Nola. Come on over to Atlanta Nola. We will gladly add you to our staff and you will never be booed by your own fans. Worst fan base in sports.
Good bullpen night from the Phillies. Wish I could say the same was true for Aaron Nola.
Shoutout to Aaron Nola and Gabe Kapler for their major roles in this game moving INCREDIBLY slow
“Aaron Nola is a bonafide Ace”- gives up five runs in 4.1 innings lol
how’d you like Aaron Nola’s start against the Braves😬
Aaron Nola’s follow-up year to his excellent 2018 year parallels Cole Hamel’s follow-up year to his excellent 2008 year. In both 2009 and 2019, the Phillies’ banked on their previous year’s ace and found themselves dead broke. #Phillies
