Aaron Nola does it all for Phillies in win
Aaron Nola proved on Monday just how worthy he is of his All-Star selection.
Nola delivered for the Philadelphia Phillies both on the mound and at the plate in a 3-1 win over the New York Mets in the second game of their doubleheader.
The 25-year-old allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out 10 over seven scoreless innings, picking up the win to improve to 12-2. He also broke the scoreless game with a 3-run double in the fifth:

That was all of Philadelphia’s offense for the game.
So let’s recap: Nola drove in all three of the Phillies’ runs and held the Mets scoreless over seven innings in a win. His 12 wins are also the most by a Phillies pitcher before the All-Star break since Curt Schilling in 1999. Not bad at all.
