Someone say “Outta Here?” Phillies blow lead, 10-7. It was a home run derby at Citizens Bank Park between the Phils and Giants seven baseballs left the field in total.
The very first pitch that Zack Wheeler threw was a tip-off of what kind of it would be. Mickey Moniak is becoming a human highlight reel and made a tremendous diving catch on the warning track. Connor Brogdon had his first bad outing of the season. He allowed San Fran two homers in one inning to change the make-up of the contest.
Brad Miller started the home run parade with a 3 run blast that put Philly up by a score of 4-0. Buster Posey countered making it 4-1 and Tommy LaStella matching Miller with a three-shot. Alec Bohm blasted a home run smash putting Philly in front, 6-3 before Posey did the deed again.
Alex Dickerson followed by Wilmer Flores put the Giants in front 10-6 before Rhys Hoskins closed the scoring and the Home Run Derby.
Bryce Harper continues to have a hot hand with a 2 for 3 night with a pair of walks and 2 RBI. In the last 4 games, Harper has gone 9 for 13 with 4 walks. Jean Segura hobbled off with a leg injury and will have an MRI on Wednesday.
I mentioned Brogdon… how bad was his outing? 2/3 of an inning, 1BB, 5 hits, and 6 runs… yeah, that’s not what Joe Girardi was looking for. Someone say “Outta Here?” For more Phillies coverage click here.
