On Saturday afternoon, the Phillies’ five-game losing streak came to an end. The day after receiving a beat down from the Chicago Cubs, the Phillies returned the favor with a 12-3 whupping. For the first time all season, a Phillie hit a home run with the bases loaded, and all of a sudden, Aaron Nola’s “bad” season doesn’t seem all that bad.

While the Phillies were succeeding on the field on Saturday, they were also busy off it, making a couple of moves to shake up their starting rotation.
