This whole group of young @Phillies
pitchers - Eflin, Pivetta, Velasquez, Morgan - seems like the Wasted Generation.
Eflin with a base hit to score Kingery and put the Phillies up, 2-0!
Did anyone think to tell Eflin he didn’t have to replace Arrieta in exactly the same fashion?
Zach Eflin in his last seven starts:
30.1 IP, 10.04 ERA, 21 K, 11 BB, 9 HR, 2.143 WHIP.
He has been terrible.
All were set to play important roles. How is one supposed to feel comfortable with same person who made those decisions, continue to make them moving forward?
Zach Eflin rejoined the #Phillies rotation tonight. It's his first start since July 27. He brought his bat, hitting a two-out single to center to score a run. Phillies lead, 2-0.
Eflin’s body must have started feeling heavy again right as the fourth inning began.
A two-out hit to Padres pitcher Dinelson Lamet proved costly for Zach Eflin. Three runs score after that to tie the game. His night is finished with two outs in the fourth.
The #Phillies lose to the Padres, 5-3. Zach Eflin allows three runs in 3 2/3 innings. Nick Pivetta allows two in 1 1/3 innings. J.T. Realmuto homered. The Phillies fall a game behind the Cubs for the second NL Wild Card.
No two pitchers tick you off more than Zach Eflin and Nick Pivetta.
Eflin and Pivetta absolutely killed the joy and hope I had this whole week. The offense died when they absolutely blew the lead like they always do. It's hard to be excited when we have delusional Managers & GM's who think these are major league pitchers. Can't have a win streak
Klentak and Kapler: "We have faith in our pitchers."
Eflin, Pivetta, and the bullpen: "We AbOuT tO EnD oUr TeAm'S sEaSoN."
when are we going to learn that Eflin and Pivetta are not good pitchers? could’ve been 5 in a row..
I’m ready to fight if y’all keep disrespecting @kingkingery
cause she likes zach eflin like she’s just a fan of the player she can’t control how he performs plus there’s worse players on this team, take your boomer bullshit somewhere else ✌🏻
Pivetta and eflin are the worst pitchers on this team
#Phillies need to call up someone not named Irvin to start a game. Eflin fell apart quickly, Pivetta sucked, and LA is trashing Chris Young on the radio
Eflin and Pivetta taking turns ruining the Phillies season. Up 3-0 w/ 2 out and Eflin fails to retire the pitcher which then turned into 3 runs.
We can thank Eflin and Pivetta for their continued mediocrity.
It took a turn to Eflin and Pivetta. When will Gabe learn that those two can’t pitch?
When we need wins and need to stay hot, it's not about taking the loss it's about addressing the issues
Pivetta and Eflin should not be in the majors, they are instant batting practice for the other team, it's that simple. Without them, we win this game.
zach eflin and nick pivetta ruined this game
And so, the #Phillies STILL have not won five in a row all season. Blew a 3-0 lead as Eflin fell apart and the offense disappeared over final 2/3 of ball game. https://t.co/BWIaKCAU6f
Phillies were up 3-0 until the trash of eflin and pivetta combined lost em the game. Yea the bats tired out tonight but still. Solid pitching wins this game 3-1. Padres havent done anything special otherwise then clock 2 bums #SDvsPHI
He was talking about bad Eflin and Pivetta’s “pitching strategy” was. And how no one is going to fall for what they’re trying to do.
Almost impossible to win nights Eflin and Smyly pitch. Why are we using Morrison against a lefty. That makes no sense
