R. Suarez pitches 1-2-3 inning with two Ks.
Now who’s going to play LF in extra innings?
Top of sixth, Phillies get two walks, Harper and Realmuto, but no runs.
Gennett hits first pitch home run.
Why Suarez pitches more than one inning while most relievers don’t, remains a question.
To be fair, Suarez gets the next three. Just got burned on the first pitch.
Phillies have 9 LOB to 2 for SF.
Serious question. What is this team good at?
Maybe seeing pitches?
Leaving runners on base.
You are right as we leave three more.
Top of the seventh, Phillies leave bases loaded, again. Hoskins pops up to end the inning. LHP gets him.
So far tonight, LOB:Phillies 12Giants 2
Phillies have drawn 9 walks and have 8 hits. Giants have 8 hits but only one walk.
Morin pitches 1-2-3 bottom of the seventh.
Realmuto single and Kingery double put runners second and third with one out.
Will Smith comes in to pitch.
Realmuto with a single and Kingery with a double with 1 out in the 8th. Bad luck that Yaz Jr made a great play to hold Realmuto on 3rd
Dickerson first pitch to RF for a game tying Sac Fly
Gives Will Smith a rough blow save
heh you're about 10 seconds ahead of me. I'll take it.
You got it.
Anyone else fear we are going to be upset that Velasquez is unavailable (Yes, I saw it mentioned before)
Maybe we should have saved his PH appearance for the 8th.
Miller pinch hits and flies out..
Phillies have 10 hits and 10 walks and 14 LOB.
Alvarez pitching, ground ball single just out of reach of Segura.Deep fly to Quinn for first out.Chopper in front of plate hits off foot of batter as he runs for out two. Dead ball, runner returned to first.
Somehow Kapler knows that it won’t go to extra innings so he can use all of the relievers by the 9th inning.
Hope he is right.
I reckon VV was already not available to pitch, but ha-ha. Pivetta should be able to go long if we don't get a lead. Eflin pitched yesterday but almost surely would again in a pinch.
Most moves he made tonight haven’t worked out very well. Hope this does.
Pivetta in with two outs. Moves runner to scoring position on mess up by Realmuto. Let ball get by him.
Triple. Giants take lead.
I would think the goal here is not to have to use Nicasio, who was far better than we gave him credit for earlier in the season but has been used up in the bigger role.
