Phillies Tough One Out

The Philadelphia Phillies tough one out against division foes Washington Nationals, 6-2. The Phillies, coming off two losses to the Atlanta Braves, went into Washington to try to right the ship against the rival Nationals.

Andrew Knapp, pinch-hitting for JT Realmuto, slammed a bases-loaded single to blow open a close game. Jose Alvarado got himself in a jam allowing a two-out double to Ryan Zimmerman. Jose flowed that with a 14 pitch walk to Trea Turner (3 for 4, 1 RBI). Then a four-pitch walk to Juan Soto.

Up came heavy hitter, Josh Bell. On a 1-1 pitch, Bell fouled the pitch that hit Realmuto in a void on his shin pad. This left the catcher in obvious discomfort. The Phils escaped when Bell was retired. Kyle Schwerber set the drama up when he got it to a 3-2 score.

A rally by Philly started with Oduble Herrera (2 for 3 with two free passes) and Alec Bohm, who didn’t start, also knocked a two base hit. That pushed it to a 4-2 Philadelphia advantage. Andrew McCutcheon and Bryce Harper both walked to set the stage for the Andrew Knapp heroics and Knapp slammed a two run single to make it 6-2.

Chase Anderson pitched very well with 5 innings surrendering 3 hits and 2 runs with a walk and 4 k’s. The good news is that it does not appear the All-Star Catcher will need to go on the disabled list and all appearances are a muscle bruise. Philadelphia Phillies tough one out against the Washington Nationals.
