Phillies get the best of Brewers, again, 5-4. The Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of Freddy Peralta’s lack of command and stormed out to a 5 run first inning. It was started by Andrew McCutcheon lacing a lead-off double followed by a walk to Brad Miller.
Rhys Hoskins hammered an O-2 single, another walk, this one to JT Realmuto, and the big hit, Didi Gregorius with a grand slam brought it to five batters, five runs. Peralta settled in and struck out the side. He then proceeded to strike out the side in the second inning to make it six in a row.
Chase Anderson, the Phils starter, ran into issues in the third starting with a Lorenzo Cain two-out single. Dan Vogelbach walked as did Travis Shaw which brought up Avidail Garcia (4 hits) who singled scoring Cain and Vogelbach. After a review, the safe call on the bang-bang play at the plate on Vogelbach was reversed to end the inning with a 5-1 Philadelphia lead.
In the 5th inning, Tyrone Taylor hit a solo homer to make it 5-2. Cain drew a walk which signaled the end of the night for Anderson.
JoJo Romero came in and allowed a Vogelbach single and Shaw grounded out, Romero to Hoskins. Garcia continued his big night with a two-run single that closed the scoring on the 5-4 Phillies third win in a row and the Brewers fourth straight loss. Phillies get the best of Brewers, again.
