The Phillies' youngsters continued to impress on Sunday.
Just a day after a pair of clutch late-inning home runs by rookies Darnell Sweeney and Aaron Altherr lifted the Phillies past the Marlins, Aaron Nola would toss eight shutout innings to propel the Phillies to a 2-0 win to take the series 3-1 over Miami.
The Phillies would grab the lead in the third, when Saturday night's hero, Altherr, hit a sacrifice fly to bring Cesar Hernandez home. Nola's battery mate Cameron Rupp would give the pitcher an extra run to work with in the seventh on a solo home run that put the Phillies up 2-0.
In all, Nola would toss a career-high eight scoreless frames, striking out six, allowing just three hits and not letting anyone get past second base before handing things over to closer Ken Giles.
Giles would put the Marlins away in order in the ninth, collecting his 10th save, as the Phillies took the game 2-0 and the series 3-1 over the Marlins.
Up Next: The Phillies return home to Citizens Bank Park for a four-game series with the Mets. Adam Morgan will take the mound for the Phillies in the series opener on Monday night against Tom Koehler.
