The Philadelphia Phillies were one of 19 MLB teams that did not select anyone in…
Bryson Stott opened the flood gates last night in the Phillies’ 7-1 series clinching win against the Miami Marlins, crushing a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning, sending fans in attendance at Citizens Bank Park into an absolute frenzy.
Stott’s grand slam was the first of his career and also the first of his postseason career. It was the second playoff grand slam in franchise history as he joined Shane Victorino who smashed one of Milwaukee Brewers pitcher CC Sabathia in Game 2 of the 2008 NLDS.

Stott rising to the occasion was impressive. Entering last night, he had only hit one home run over his past 28 games and batted just .181 in the month of September. Stott even gave everyone watching a flashback to the Rhys Hoskins bat slam from last year’s bomb off Spencer Strider in the NLDS.
