The Phils’ Vinny Velasquez allowed six hits, two walks and struck out six over seven scoreless innings in the Phillies’ 2-1 victory over the Braves, his best start since striking out 16 in a complete-game shutout against the Padres on April 14, 2016. “There it is,” Phillies catcher Andrew Knapp said. “He didn’t strike out 16, but he can go out and do that every time.” Velasquez entered the game just 2-9 with a 5.98 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP in 17 starts since Aug. 9, 2016, although he has a 2.81 ERA in three starts since returning from the disabled list with a strained right elbow. Velasquez’s inconsistency and inability to pitch deep in games has had some wondering if his future is in the bullpen.
