Phillies ends up slipping behind Billy Walter and 22 hits from the offense

Phoenix – Hi, how do I share Billy Walter.

The guy has spent the season riding up and down the northeast expanse between Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley, a major player one day, and a minor worker the next.

He has been called up by the big club seven times this season. This is just the case when you are the sixth starter in a five-man team.

Elbow inflammation. Come down, Billy.

Someone needs an extra day. You know the way, Billy.

Double headshot. Yu, Billy.

Walther replaced injured Zach Wheeler last week and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates. He returned to the hill on Wednesday night and took another victory for the much-needed Phillies.

In his 11 best major league start, the skinny 25-year-old left-hander made 6 1/3 innings from the one-run ball and didn’t go as far as the Phillies hit the Arizona Diamondbacks, 18-2, under the big top in the middle City of Phoenix.

Walter, who posted five hits, including Homer’s solo, was probably on his last run when he left the game by one lead in the seventh inning due to a tight right thigh. The exit was a precaution, and after the match Walter said he was fine and would not waste time.

With 32 games left (31 games now) in the season, this was very close to a victory for the Phillies. They have lost three in a row. The wild card race was narrowing down with San Diego and Milwaukee winning earlier in the day. The Phillies’ start to promotion hasn’t been so good in the past three days. Bulls need some rest.

Walter came about by expelling Velez some desert demons. They’ve lost seven straight times at Arizona dating back to 2019, including a pair of ugly defeats on Monday and Tuesday night when starting pitchers Ranger Suarez and Aaron Nola were lit for a total of 14 runs.

How did you feel when a team in need came?

“Absolutely amazing,” Walther said. “We needed W tonight and that’s what we did. The bats were great and did my job, giving us a chance to win.”

Walther with family and friends in the stands from his home state of California, Walter used mostly speedball mixes. His fastball isn’t a hard court. It depends on the ability to drive it over barrels. He had a good Wednesday night. She topped the field at 94 mph and consistently delivered first pitches.

Velez 4-0 in Walter’s last four starts in the majors. All had a good start to six or more innings and three or fewer winning runs. Not bad for a guy who went back and forth to Triple A.

“You have to adapt if you want to keep playing this game,” Walther said. “I have work to do and you have to deal with punches sometimes. It won’t always be fair. It’s work. That’s it.”

After right-wing Arizona leader Zach Gallen snagged the night before, Phyllis’ bats came back alive against rookie rookie Tommy Henry, who gave up seven strokes and seven runs in four rounds.

Velez finished the night with 22 hits and 15 goals to 29 goals were with the runners in the scoring position. Every beginner Phillies had at least two hits. Bryce Harper, Rhys Hoskins, and Brandon Marsh had three each.

“It was a good attacking night, we played good defense and Billy Walter was fantastic again,” coach Rob Thompson said.

Thursday is a day off for Phils, who are 73-58 and dominate the second-place finish in the National League. They open their weekend series against the San Francisco Giants at 24 Willie Maze Plaza on Friday night. The giants are reeling. Padres swept them on Thursday and lost seven consecutive goals and 11 of 13 to drop to 61-68.

Velez, who will send Kyle Gibson, Noah Sendergaard and Suarez up the hill in the series, needs to capitalize on the struggling team. Nick Castellanos, who has not played in the Arizona series due to an injury to his right toe, could return to San Francisco.

During Phils’ stay in San Francisco, Wheeler, who has been sidelined with forearm tendinitis, will throw a practice session, the last hurdle before he is activated from the injured list and kicks off when Phils gets home Tuesday night.

It is unclear what Wheeler’s return will mean for Walther. A trip to Bullpen? Or another trip back up the Northeast Extension?

“No matter what they decide to do with me, I will be ready,” he said. “That’s all that matters.”
