Phillies Pull Off 6-1 Victory

The Philadelphia Phillies pull off a 6-1 victory. If you love to second guess, this one was for you. The drama unfolded but not before Ronald Torreyes connected for his career-high 6th homerun giving Philadelphia a 1-0 lead. Matt Moore was baffling the Reds who only picked three hits. None of which off Moore.

JT Realmuto pushed things to 2-0 with a double and shortly after, the second-guessing would show up. Manager, Joe Girardi pulled Moore after six innings with Moore surrendering 2 walks while fanning 8. The second-guessing, after allowing Moore to bat, Girardi yanked him in the middle of a no-hitter!

Travis Jankowski delivered a single while Hector Neris kept the no-no in tack. Archie Bradley was victimized by a Tyler Stephenson long ball making it 3-1. The oddness continued with Bryce Harper tripling and scoring on a shortstop throwing err to put it to 5-1. Andrew McCutchen added the sixth run with a solo shot. Phillies pull off a 6-1 victory. The same teams go at it again Sunday.
