The Phillies Sweep the Detriot Tigers

The Philadelphia Phillies seem to be getting their groove back. The recently struggling bats have come alive, and the pitching is crisper than ever. They use all these tools to sweep the Detriot Tigers.

Monday Night was Raw

Monday night’s game had a lot of good things come out of it. Aaron Nola pitched 7 innings giving up one hit and 3 runs. He also racked up 7 strikeouts and 3 walks. Trea Turner had a banner night. Turner ended up going 4 for 5 with 2 home runs.

Nick Maton accounted for all Detroit’s runs with one swing hitting a 3-run homer. It was something for the feels. It must have felt good for him to be able to do that at Citizens Bank Park. He and Matt Veirling received their National League Championship rings earlier that night.

The scoring got started in the bottom of the 1st. Turner knocked in Kyle Schwarber to give the Phillies a 1 and 0 lead. In the bottom of the 2nd, Nick Castellanos drives in Dylan Guthrie to make the score 2-0. Trea Turner goes yard in the bottom of the 3rd to give the Phillies a 3-0 lead. Bryce Harper drives in Nick Castellanos to give the Phillies a 4-0 lead in the 5th. Turner homers again to give the Phillies a 5 to 0 lead.

Nick Maton Homer’s in the top of the 7th to cut the Phillies’ lead to 5 to 3. Bottom of the 7th, JT Realmuto drives in Harper and Turner and gives the Phillies a 7 to 3 lead. Sosa would double in Realmuto the Phillies would lead 8 to 3. That’s how the game would end, and that would make 3 to row for the Phils.

Kyle Schwarber would hit a home run in the bottom of the 1st, and that’s all the runs this contest would need. All the Phillies would need is Taijuan Walker. He went 7 strong innings with 7 Ks and 3 walks. Seranthony Dominguez pitched a scoreless 8th.  Craig Kimbrel would close out the 9th. That makes 4 in a row for the Phightin Phils.

Zach Wheeler was in complete control, going 7 and 1/3 innings with 8 k’s and one walk. He only gave up 1 earned run. Seranthony would come in and shut the Tigers down in the 8th. Craig Kimball came in the 9th and was a little shaky, giving up a run.

The scoring would get started in the bottom of the 6th inning when Bryce Harper would hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Kyle Schwarber and giving the Phillies a 1-0 lead. The Tigers would respond in the top of the 8th when Zach gave up a single, allowing Jake Marshnick to score, tying the score at 1-1. The Tigers would go ahead in the top of the 9th inning. When former Phillie Nick Maton singled to right, scoring Javier Baez.

Bottom of the ninth, the Phils would tie the game at 2 on a Brandon Marsh sacrifice fly, scoring Bryce Harper. Kody Clemens would single the game-winning run. Trea Turner crosses the plate giving the Phillies a 3 to 2 win and allowing the Phillies to sweep the Detriot Tigers.

That’s now five wins in a row for the Phils. The LA Dodgers come to town. After being swept the last time, the Phillies will surely be looking for payback.
