The Phillies’ offense now has 36 hits in their last two games, and even on a day that Zack Wheeler didn’t have his best stuff, the team found a way to win.
Bryson Stott led off today’s game with a single, breaking the all-time Phillies record for the longest hitting streak to start a season in franchise history. Stott is now up to 29 hits on the season, with today being his 11th multi-hit game.
The Fightins got the scoring going early in today’s game following Stott’s single. A Kyle Schwarber walk set up two men on for Nick Castellanos. Castellanos ripped a single to right to score Stott, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead.
Alec Bohm continued the scoring, singling to left, which would score Castellanos and Schwarber while moving Brandon Marsh over to third. The Phillies took three from Lance Lynn in the first and followed with more runs in the third inning with a two-run single from Josh Harrison.
Zack Wheeler threw two dominant innings to start the game but blew up in the third inning. He allowed six hits and four runs, which brought the score down to just one run at 5-4. Wheeler would settle back in after this inning, finishing his day with eight hits, four earned runs, and five strikeouts in five innings (94 pitches).
Josh Harrison’s best game as a Phillie continued as he stepped to the plate in the top half of the 7th inning with Jake Cave on base. Harrison crushed one 399 feet to left field, elevating the Phils’ lead to three and giving the team a few insurance runs.
Josh Harrison puts the Phillies up 7-4
The Phillies bullpen was lights out in game one as Gregory Soto, Craig Kimbrel, and Seranthony Dominguez combined for three total innings, zero hits allowed, and six strikeouts. Jose Alvarado pitched the ninth inning and locked up the win with a one-two-three inning while striking out two.
