Phillies Dump Another to the DBacks

Phillies dump another to the DBacks, 4-2. The Philadelphia Phillies lose another winnable game with Humberto Castellanos being a one-man wrecking crew. Castellanos picked up two including an RBI single. Big deal right? Castellanos is a pitcher! His 5 1/3 innings with 3 hits, 1 earned run, 2 free passes, and a strikeout was more than enough to propel the youngster to his first big league win.


Counterpart, Ranger Suarez, was good enough to go 4 2/3 allowing 8 hits with 3 runs and 4 walks, and two k’s off his 86 pitch night. Odubel Herrera was the Philadelphia offense scoring on a wild pitch and homering. Herrera started the scoring on the wild pitch. Nick Ahmed scored in the same fashion to knot it up.

Castellanos singled in the go-ahead run with Carson Kelly also knocking in a runoff a single to make it 3-1. Christian Walker followed the script to get it a 4-1 affair with Herrera blasting a solo home run to close the books on the runs. For this Phillies season there is an old adage, “it’s not over ‘till the fat lady sings”. She may be singing but, she is backstage rehearsing. Phillies dump another to the DBacks.
