About eight weeks ago the talk from the Phillies was how they were going to tweak the schedule and get Aaron Nola 8 more starts out of the year and thereby giving the Phillies a better chance at the playoffs.

The plan has backfired big time, Nola hasn’t won a game since, yesterday Aaron Nola got his third loss since that announcement and the sixth time in a row that the team has lost with his starts since the announcement.

What has been happening with this? In the month of September, Nola has been getting lit up, giving up 5 ER in Cincinnati on Sept 4th, then 5 days later he gave up 4 ER vs Atlanta at home. Two more lost Phillies games in his starts follow, one in a tight game against Boston 2-1 and then yesterday, 5-4 in Atlanta.

This almost seems like April, when Nola won only two of his starts for the Phils, while the team ended up losing 4 games when he gave up 6 ER, 4 ER, and 5 ER during 3 of those April games. In fact by the end of April, Nola’s ERA was 5.68 in 6 starts to start of the season.

In May and July Nola won the bulk of his games of the year, 7 times, in fact, but as it stands now in September, his record is 12-6. He’s had plenty of support in his games this year, averaging 5.21 runs per game. Somehow he isn’t quite having the season he had last year though.

This just about finishes the Phillies playoff hopes with the loss yesterday, however slim they were. They are now 4 GB and not a lot of games to go.

Nola’s starts this season:
