After getting pounded in Arizona last weekend, Nick Pivetta rebounding incredibly nicely with a strong seven inning, one hit, one run performance in the series finale against the Mets.

Daniel Nava went 3-for-5 out of the leadoff spot with a two-RBI single in the eighth. Tommy Joseph, Nick Williams, and Andrew Knapp posted two hits apiece. Three games into Williams’ big league career, he’s hitting .364. Maikel Franco contributed with a tw0-RBI double in the second for his only hit in the 7-1 win.
The Phils return home for a Fourth-of-July week series against the Pirates starting tomorrow night at 7:05.
