Neris set up a situation for practice by starting the inning with a double by Eaton, followed by a walk and then a balk, putting runners on second and third with no outs.
Then he got a ground ball to first, a pop up and a strikeout to escape with only one run scored, the run coming in on the no out grounder to Hoskins.
Score 7-1 going into the 8th inning. Irvin pitched a scoreless seventh for the Phillies.
All of the Phillies starters except Bruce, the DH, are out of the game.
Voth completes his third 1-2-3 inning in the top of the 8th.
