NOLA CRUISES TO 9-3 AS PHILS BRUISE TIGERS, WATCH!

By Sam Bush

Aaron Nola yielded one run over seven innings in a win over the Tigers.

Nola cruised into the late innings after being staked to a massive lead before even taking the mound at pitcher-friendly Comerica Park.

He struck out six and walked none.

A run-scoring single from Carson Kelly in the fifth inning represented the lone blemish against him over seven strong frames.

He also started a rare 1-3-5 triple play in the third inning, the first in the big leagues since 1929 and only third of its kind in big-league history.

The 31-year-old upper-echelon fantasy contributor is prone to the occasional blow-up, but he’s allowed three earned runs or fewer in 13 of his 16 outings this season. He’ll aim to keep things rolling on Saturday with a tasty matchup against the Marlins.
