Phillies Make it 8 on an Emotional Day

The Philadephia Phillies, namely, Zack Wheeler, paid great homage to the deceased Hall of Famer, Roy Halliday on the day that his number 34 was retired, They make it 8 wins in a row on this emotional day. Wheeler continued to lay claim to the Cy Young Award with a brilliant two-hit shut out of the flailing New York Mets. The victory improved Philadelphia to a 2 and half-game lead in the National League East Division.

Wheeler would get all the run support he would need when Jean Segura and JT Realmuto each crushed a solo home run in the first inning. After Brandon Nimmo clubbed a lead-off double, Wheeler would retire the next 22 batters before walking Michael Conforto, in the interim. Bryce Harper smoked another solo blast to provide the margin of victory. Wheeler allowed another hit from Nimmo in ninth.

He was able to finish his masterpiece with just 108 pitches with just 50 thru the first four. It’s an emotional day for the entire fan base but with a victory they deserve.
