SHOULD PHILS BE CONCERNED ABOUT ZACK WHEELER’S MELTDOWN?

By Sarah Paley

The matchup between Zack Wheeler (8-4) and Corbin Burnes (8-2) was a flop.

Wheeler had never allowed more than three homers in a game, but the Orioles hit one in four of his five innings.

Wheeler lasted just 4 1/3 innings and matched a career high with eight earned runs allowed. He hadn’t permitted that many since 2018.

“Just command really. All four of those (home run) pitches were right down the middle of the plate,” Thomson said.

“And up a little bit. It’s just one of those days.”
