Ross Detwiler pitched an outstanding ballgame in Thursday’s victory over the Phillies, allowing just three hits and a pair of walks over seven scoreless innings, striking out three in the process.
It was a nice bounce-back effort for Detwiler who was hit hard by the Brewers in Milwaukee over the weekend. All three hits allowed in the game were singles, and the Phillies only mounted one legitimate scoring threat against him. After Ty Wigginton reached on an error in the second inning, he attempted to score from second on a Michael Martinez single, but Bryce Harper cut him down at the plate. Detwiler will take a 6-4 record and 3.02 ERA into Tuesday’s start against the Astros in Houston.
