Nola (5-5) took the loss Sunday against the Rays, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks across 3.2 innings. He fanned six.
Nola was called upon to keep the Phillies' playoff chances alive on the season's final day and the right-hander struggled under the intense circumstances. After striking out a pair in a clean first inning, the Rays got to Nola for a run in the second. The 27-year-old bounced back to strike out the first two batters he faced in the third but then allowed a walk and three hits to get tagged with two more runs. He was pulled after issuing two walks in the fourth. Despite the disappointing finish to his campaign, Nola ends the year with 96 punch outs and a solid 3.28 ERA.
Nola (5-4) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.
The outing qualified as a complete game, as the Nats didn't need to come to the plate in the bottom of the seventh. It was Nola's fourth quality start in his last six outings, a stretch during which he's posted a 3.03 ERA and 50:13 K:BB through 38.2 innings. The Phillies got swept in the twin bill to bump them out of a wild-card spot, but if they can rally over the next few days, Nola's final start of the regular season Sunday in Tampa Bay could be a huge one for the club.
Nola did not factor in the decision against the Mets on Thursday, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing five runs on five hits and five walks while striking out seven.
Nola got off to a rough start in the outing, allowing three runs on a pair of walks and two hits in the first inning. He settled down until the sixth frame, when he surrendered a Pete Alonso solo home run and was tagged with another earned run after departing the contest. Due to an even less effective performance by opposing starter Seth Lugo, Nola managed to escape with a no-decision, though the five earned runs he allowed were his most this season. Despite the less-than-stellar outing, Nola stills holds a 2.92 ERA on the campaign, which he'll look to improve upon in his next scheduled start at Washington on Tuesday.
Nola's next start will come Thursday against the Mets, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Zack Wheeler (finger) has been unavailable for most of the past week but will be reinserted into the rotation Wednesday, pushing Nola's scheduled start back one day, though he'll still face the same opponent. Across his past four starts Nola has a 1.65 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 37:6 K:BB over 27.1 innings.
Nola (5-3) picked up the win in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins, scattering three hits over seven shutout innings. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.
It goes down in the books as Nola's first career complete game, even if it were only seven innings and not the traditional nine. He tossed 70 of 106 pitches for strikes, and he retired the first seven batters he faced, six of them via strikeout, before Jazz Chisholm reached base on an HBP. Nola will take a 2.40 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 77:13 K:BB through 56.1 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Mets.
Nola (4-3) allowed six runs (three earned) on eight hits and one walk while striking out 10 over 5.1 innings and was charged with the loss Sunday against the Mets.
Nola lasted eight innings in his last start, as he was dominant against the Nationals, but he was far less effective Sunday, allowing runs in all but one of the innings that he pitched. He was able to stay hot in the strikeout column, but he struggled to keep the basepaths clear. The right-hander now has a 2.74 ERA and 67:13 K:BB over 49.1 innings this season. He'll attempt to right the ship on the road Friday as part of a doubleheader against the Marlins.
Nola (4-2) earned the win Tuesday against the Nationals after giving up two hits with nine strikeouts and three walks over eight scoreless innings.
The 27-year-old delivered his best outing of the season as he completely shut down Washington's offense. Nola has a 2.45 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 57:12 K:BB through 43 innings and will look to replicate this performance Sunday against the Mets.
Nola (3-2) allowed two runs on five hits (one home run) and two walks while striking out eight across seven innings as he earned the win over the Nationals on Wednesday.
Nola allowed a second-inning home run to Juan Soto and later ran into some trouble in the fourth after walking the first two batters, allowing Howie Kendrick to drive in Asdrubal Cabrera from second. Nola was able to escape with minimal damage and finish with a win after the Phillies put up two runs of in the top of the seventh to take a 3-2 lead. Nola now sports a 3.00 ERA and an impressive 48:9 K:BB across 36 innings as he is scheduled next to take the mound Monday against the Nationals again.
Nola (2-2) allowed four runs on six hits -- including two home runs -- and three walks while striking out three batters in 2.2 innings in a loss to the Braves on Friday.
Nola had some trouble finding the strike zone Friday, and when he did, the Braves took advantage. His three walks and six hits were the most he's allowed in a start this season, and his three strikeouts represent a season low. Nola has a tough road matchup coming up next against the Nationals.
Nola (2-1) picked up the win in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Mets, allowing three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings. He struck out eight.
The right-hander got into a bit of trouble early, putting Mets on second and third with two outs in the first inning, but Nola then struck out Pete Alonso and didn't allow another runner past second base the rest of the way. He retired the final 13 batters he faced and finished his night having thrown 66 of 102 pitches for strikes. Nola will take a sparkling 2.05 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and 37:4 K:BB through 26.1 innings into his next outing Friday in Atlanta.
Nola (1-1) allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out 10 over eight innings in a win over the Braves on Monday.
The Phillies put up 10 runs in the first two innings against Atlanta and Nola went into cruise control, with the only blemish being a solo homer off the bat of Travis d'Arnaud. Nola has made just three starts -- he was pushed back earlier in the season after the team's COVID-19 scare -- but he has been great when on the mound (10 hits, 27:2 K:BB in 19.1 innings). The right-hander seems to be getting back to his 2018 ace form and will look to keep it going later this week against the Mets.
Nola allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out 12 across six innings in the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday against the Yankees. He did not factor into the decision.
Nola dominated the Yankees in his first start in 12 days, with the lone run he surrendered coming on a solo shot by Luke Voit. He generated 19 swinging strikes and 18 called strikes on 88 total pitches to match a career-high in strikeouts. This was only Nola's second start of the season due to a realigned schedule, though he has struck out 19 and walked only one in 11.1 innings of work. He's scheduled to take the mound again Monday against Atlanta.
Nola will start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The 27-year-old was originally set to start Tuesday's contest, but the game was postponed due to Tropical Storm Isaias making landfall. Due to the ripple effects from Miami's COVID-19 outbreak, Nola has started only once this season and allowed four runs with seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings.
Nola won't make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Yankees, as the game has been postponed due to threats of severe weather.
The Yankees and Phillies are expected to be able to get Monday's game in but will move Tuesday's contest to Wednesday, where it will be part of a doubleheader in Philadelphia. The Phillies haven't officially announced their plans, but Nola will presumably start one of those two games. Nola has started just once this season, as the Phillies were held out of action for the entirety of last week while the league waited to determine whether or not they'd been caught up in the Marlins' coronavirus outbreak.
Nola is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Yankees in New York, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
After getting the Opening Day nod for the Phillies back on July 24 versus the Marlins, Nola will return to the mound on nine days' rest on the heels of multiple postponements. Assuming no further scheduling snafus over the next few days, Nola will line up for a two-start week, with his second turn coming Sunday at home versus the Braves.
Nola's scheduled start against the Blue Jays on Saturday has been postponed, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
The Phillies announced that a pair of staff members tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week, prompting the team to shut down its stadium and postpone this weekend's series against the Blue Jays. It's unclear when Nola will get the ball next.
Nola won't start before Saturday at the earliest, with all Phillies games prior to that date postponed, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
After starting Friday on Opening Day, Nola would have lined up to start Wednesday against the Yankees, but the four-game series was postponed while MLB waits to see whether or not the Phillies have been caught up in the Marlins' coronavirus outbreak that has seen approximately half of Miami's active roster test positive for the virus. As of Wednesday, no member of the Phillies has tested positive, but the virus can sometimes take a few days to show up in test results. The first game of the Phillies' weekend series against the Blue Jays was postponed from Friday and moved to part of what will now be a doubleheader Saturday, when Nola will presumably make his next start.
Nola (0-1) allowed four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday.
One of the runs against Nola scored after he exited the game. It still qualifies as a letdown in a favorable spot at home, though the seven strikeouts against one walk suggest there is little reason to panic. Nola will face a tough test his time out: the Yankees in the Bronx.
Nola will be the Phillies' Opening Day starter Friday against the Marlins, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
A typical rest schedule should see Nola face the Marlins twice in his first two starts, with a much tougher assignment against the Yankees sandwiched in between. Nola's ability to pitch on Opening Day had been in some doubt, as his arrival in camp was delayed due to the fact that he'd been exposed to someone who had tested positive for COVID-19. Whether or not he'll be able to handle a full starter's workload right away is unclear, but he'll be on the mound for at least a fair number of innings against one of the weaker lineups in the league.
Manager Joe Girardi said Nola is definitely a possibility to start Opening Day, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Nola was a late arrival at the Phillies' camp because he had been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, but he has cleared the MLB's testing protocol. The right-hander pitched well during Monday's intrasquad game, while teammate Zack Wheeler remains uncertain if he'll rejoin the team from paternity. Nola went 12-7 in his fifth campaign in Philadelphia last season, posting a 3.87 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 229:80 K:BB across 34 starts.
