Led by Kemp’s 4 RBIs, a offense pilloried Philadelphia starter Zach Eflin, though Stripling did not need most backing. He struck out nine. His usually cut occurred on a solo home run by Phillies outfielder Nick Williams in a seventh. Stripling finished 7 innings for usually a third time in his large joining career and for a initial time given Aug. 12, 2016. He did so in 92 pitches, a indication of potency opposite a inclusive Phillies offense.
