Your Thursday Morning Roundup

All three outfielders came in clutch with the bat on Wednesday afternoon.

Jay Bruce had another good game, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run while Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with an RBI double in the seventh to bring the Phillies within a run.

But rookie Adam Haseley got his first career hit in fashion. He doubled to left field and brought home Scott Kingery for the eventual game-winning run in the eighth to help the Phils win 7-5. He also scored two runs on Cesar Hernandez’s triple in the seventh and Andrew Knapp’s single in the eighth.

It was a late rally for the Phils, who scored five combined runs in the seventh and eighth innings. It’s the first time in 23 outings they’ve won a game when trailing after six. They were down 5-2 heading into the seventh after the Padres got to Jake Arrieta. He went 4 2/3 innings and gave up five runs off seven hits with three strikeouts and two walks. He got rocked in the third with back-to-back homers from Josh Naylor (3-run homer) and Wil Myers (solo home run). The bullpen gave up one hit the rest of the way.

After getting swept by the Dodgers and losing to the Padres in the series opener, the Phillies were able to salvage two wins to wrap up their west coast swing. They got banged up as well, with McCutchen tearing his ACL (whether or not you think Jean Segura caused it because of a “lack of hustle”), and now Seranthony Dominguez. The bullpen is already suffering with David Robertson, Tommy Hunter, Victor Arano, Pat Neshek, and Adam Morgan already on the injured list. Hopefully Dominguez isn’t the next guy joining them.

The Phils are off today as they head back east. They’ll host the Reds in a weekend series starting tomorrow.

  1. The Phillies are 2-0 without that clubhouse cancer Cutch. He’s definitely not a philly guy.

  2. The sixers would be on the brink of nba championship if it wasn’t for a miracle shot by Leonard. Unreal the luck Toronto has these nba playoffs

    1. You think Embiid would have lived long enough to make it through four rounds of playoff basketball?! The guy almost died having to play 12 playoff games! And actually he only played 11 he was so wasted and spent. Four against a bad New Jersey team and seven against a Toronto team that slept-walked through the second round series.

  3. I can’t even read my lines off a piece of paper. I’m worse than NatEgg! How the hell am I still employed?? LOL.
