Phillies Crushed by the Giants

Phillies crushed by the Giants, 11-2. The San Francisco Giants played long ball with a four-homer game to close their homestand with a 6-1 record.

Two words can be said as a positive for this Phillies performance. JT Realmuto. The catcher supplied the only Philadelphia highlight with a two-run home run that made it a close game at 3-2. San Fran took a 3-0 lead before they made an out with Rhys Hoskins booting a first pitch of the game ground ball to set up Mike Yastrzemski for a two-run blast.

Wilmer Flores (4-4 3 runs scored with 2 RBI) followed with a homer of his own and just like that, another Phillies collapse was unfolding. Realmuto (3 for 4, 2 RBI) got in the homer parade to close it to 3-2.

That, as they say, was all she wrote. Brandon Crawford (2 for 4) countered Realmuto with a two-run shot of his own that got it to 5-2.
Flores added his second Jack of the game followed a Steven Dugan RBI single, Yastrzemski scored on a Wild Pitch, Curt Casali had bases loaded walk and Crawford finished his big day with a two-run double.

Sammy Long went 6 innings allowing just four hits which included the Realmuto shot, and 6 strikeouts. For team Philadelphia, Zach Eflin went 5 innings, a Joe Girardi complete game, with 9 hits, 6 earned runs, and 6 strikeouts. The enigmatic Spencer Howard checked in for an inning and two-thirds surrendering 2 runs off 2 hits and 3 walks. Phillies are crushed by the Giants. Philadelphia has an off day Monday.
