Philadelphia: After losing 2 of 3 to the Toronto Bluejays over the weekend, the Philadelphia Phillies needed to figure out what the hell is going on if they want to be taken serious as a team that can make the changes and make the playoffs.
On Tuesday night the Phillies took on the Miami Marlins from Citizens Bank Park.
The story of this game happened in the 8th inning, game was tied at 1 and then the Marlins took the lead on 2 run HR from Jazz Chisholm for 3-1 lead
At this point, everyone in the stadium though ON NO, Not again regarding the Phillis bullpen blowing the game and just ruin the performance by Zach Wheeler who went 7 inning with 10 strikeouts..
The Phillies would have other ideas as they would fight their way and got the game ties on RBI single by Nick Mathon
Phillies took their first lead of the game on 2 run double by Ronald Torreyes for the 5-3 lead
The Phillies were not done after the Torreyes hit, Jean Segura with RBI groundout which made it 6-3, then Bryce Harper would have something to say as he added to the lead with 2 run single for 8-3 lead
Hector Neris came in and closed the door as Phillies take game 1 of this series 8-3. This was a game that the Phillies needed to get some confidence back and end their recent struggles they have had against the Marlins.
Summary of the 7 run 8th inning
Now the question is can the Phillies build off this performance and show the rest of the NL East to watch out of them or are we going to take it game by game if they can really do some damage the rest of the season.
The Phillies will send Zach Eflin out for Game 2 of the series on Wednesday night to make it back to back wins.
