J.T. Realmuto‘s grand slam off Kevin Gausman in the bottom of the 5th broke open a 2 – 0 game, and led the Phillies in taking 1 of the 3 game set.
Bryce Harper homered in the 1st and Adam Haseley added another in the 3rd to set the stage for Realmuto. The homers accounted for all 6 of Gausman’s runs allowed; the rest of the line included 9 hits, a walk, and 8 strikeouts in 6 innings.
Aaron Nola shut down the Braves for 6, but they battled back in the 7th as Ender Inciarte and Johan Camargo hit back-to-back homers to cut the lead to 6 – 4. Before the inning ended, Atlanta had the tying run on base, but could do no more.
Rhys Hoskins re-broke it open in the bottom of the inning with a 2 run homer off Sean Newcomb. Newcomb ended up with 2 hits allowed, a walk, and 3 runs allowed in his 2/3 of an inning. Josh Tomlin finished up. You can see the play-by-play from here.
Ronald Acuna Jr. left in the 7th with neck stiffness, after colliding with Jean Segura while stealing his 24th base. Initial reports are optimistic.
