Bryce Harper: ‘Bryson Stott is going to be a star’
The Philadelphia Phillies, sparked by Bryce Harper, Alec Bohm, and Bryson Stott stormed back against the Baltimore Orioles last night, winning in walk off fashion 4-3.
Bryce Harper finally got the Phillies out a week and a half long funk with a solo home run to right centerfield off former Phillies pitcher Kyle Gibson to tie the game 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning.

After Matt Strahm handed the Orioles the lead in the top of the eighth inning, the Phillies entered the bottom of the 9th inning and Trea Turner led things off with a ground out, followed by a Bryce Harper single to center and Nick Castellanos striking out swinging.
With two outs, Bryson Stott stepped up to the plate and roped an RBI double to the corner in right field to tie the ball game 3-3. Bryce Harper scored from first base and was MOVING around the base paths.

Alec Bohm then delivered a walk off single to right field, scoring Stott and handing the Phillies a much needed 4-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
On the night, Harper, Stott, and Bohm combined for 5-for-12, 3 RBI and 4 runs scored and while the rest of the Phillies lineup continues to battle through a 14-day slump Harper and the Daycare delivered last night when the team needed them the most.

On the season, Bryson Stott is batting .300 with 9 home runs and 37 RBI with a .755 OPS. Over his last 30 games, Stott is batting .303 with 3 home runs and 11 RBI. The kid is on FIRE and his best friend and teammate Bryce Harper talked about just how good the Phillies’ young second baseman can be in the MLB.

Hopefully last night was an indication that the Phillies are BACK after a rough couple of series against the Brewers and Guardians. The Phillies managed to keep pace in the crowded race to fill the three NL Wild Card spots, with all teams winning last night outside of the Miami Marlins.
Ranger Suarez will take the mound tonight against Orioles pitcher Kyle Bradish looking to give The Fightins a much needed series win before they head to Pittsburgh for the final series before the MLB Trade Deadline.
