Aaron Nola, Phillies shut out Nationals on two-hitter

phillies

Aaron Nola and three relievers combined on a two-hitter and the visiting Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 4-0 on Friday night.

Kyle Schwarber had a two-run single as part of a three-run second inning and walked twice for the Phillies. Bryce Harper had three hits including an RBI single, and JT Realmuto had two hits.

Nola (1-1) went 5 2/3 innings, allowing two hits and four walks. He struck out four.

Relievers Matt Strahm (1 1/3 innings), Seranthony Dominguez (one) and Jose Alvarado (one) didn’t allow a hit the rest of the way while recording one strikeout apiece.

Patrick Corbin (0-1) became the first Nationals starter to go six innings, working six-plus and allowing four runs on nine hits. He struck out six and walked three.

Washington pitchers issued nine walks and the Phillies had at least one base runner in each inning, leaving 12 on base to six for the Nationals.

The Phillies got to Corbin in the second. Alec Bohm led off with a single and Bryson Stott and Nick Castellanos walked to load the bases. Bohm scored on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Marsh. Corbin retired Johan Rojas on a grounder as runners advanced to second and third. Schwarber followed with a single grounded to right that scored two runs and made it 3-0.

Harper doubled and Realmuto singled to open the third, but Harper was out trying to steal home when he took off from third after Corbin caught Realmuto off first.

Luis Garcia Jr. doubled leading off the Washington third, but he was held at third on a one-out single by CJ Abrams, who was thrown out at second.

Philadelphia added a run and chased Corbin in the seventh. Schwarber led off with a walk and went to third on Trea Turner’s double. Harper lined a single to right, scoring Schwarber. Jordan Weems replaced Corbin and ultimately got out of the inning without further damage thanks to Stott’s double-play grounder.

With one out in the eighth inning, the Phillies loaded the bases on three consecutive one-out walks, but Tanner Rainey got Turner to ground into an inning-ending double play.
