Phillies Lose on Historic Night

The Phillies lose on a historic night, 2-0. Former Phillies manager, Gabe Kapler gathered his 200th managerial victory courtesy of a two-run homer from Brandon Belt off Chase Anderson.

Anderson pitched well enough but took the loss after having gone 4 innings allowing 5 hits and striking out five. His counterpart, Kevin Gausman lasted six innings allowing 4 free passes and picking up 5 strikeouts.

The pitching was only part of the story. The Phillies’ inability to get a hit when needed was demonstrated by leaving 11 runners stranded. Bryce Harper remains in a groove and went 3 for 4. The rowdy crowd of 9,150 were treated to a viral video when known baseball collector, Zack Hample raced down the aisle to recover the Belt homer. In his haste, he slipped and wound up on the concrete. Just inches from the ball, another fan scooped it up.

The history end of things was Gabe Kapler who became the first manager in baseball history to join an exclusive club with 200 wins and 200 losses. The Phillies lose on a historic night. For more Phillies coverage click here.
