Dalbec homers in 4th straight game; Red Sox, Phillies split

  Dalbec homers in 4th straight game; Red Sox, Phillies split PHILADELPHIA — Bobby Dalbec needed some loaner lumber to go on a Red Sox rookie record home run streak. Dalbec homered for his fourth straight game, his two-run shot in the sixth inning enough to help the Boston Red Sox beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 on Tuesday night and split a doubleheader. Alec Bohm hit a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning to rally the Phillies to 6-5 win in the opener. Dalbec homered in both games of the doubleheader, and the rookie first baseman has homered in five of his first nine career games. He’s the first Red Sox rookie to homer in four straight games — and he started the surge when he borrowed teammate Jackie Bradley Jr’s bat.

PHILADELPHIA — Bryce Harper should make more predictions.

Alec Bohm hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 6-5 on Thursday night, completing a four-game sweep.

The Phillies are 9-1 since Harper said the team needs to “win nine of 10” following a loss at Atlanta on Aug. 22.

“I heard someone say Bryce is a prophet,” Phillies manager Joe Girardi said. “I'm going to go to him and see what I should do next.”

Nimmo homer in 9th rallies Mets past Phillies 10-6

  Nimmo homer in 9th rallies Mets past Phillies 10-6 PHILADELPHIA — Brandon Nimmo took a couple of slow steps and gawked at the winning homer he smacked to right. The kind of reaction was a bit out of character for Nimmo. That kind of crushing, ninth-inning blow was to true to form for the Phillies bullpen. Nimmo had a two-RBI tying triple in the sixth inning and hit the go-ahead solo homer in the ninth to lead the New York Mets to a 10-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night. Nimmo’s eighth homer of the year landed in the right field seats off reliever Brandon Workman (1-3) for a 7-6 lead and was the latest big hit against the beleaguered Phillies bullpen.

These people sacrifice children, eat bodies, drink blood and worship dark gods. This material tends to be quite addictive. Hillary is a witch– child sacrifice – Hillary is a piece of shit bitch headed for the lake of fire—FACT GOD put TRUMP in office and HE will keep him there.

4-game sweep : Bohm lifts Phillies in 10th. Alec Bohm ’ s bases-loaded sacrifice fly scored J.T. Realmuto in the 10th, lifting the Phillies to their ninth win in the past 10 games. • “He jammed his knee on the base,” manager Dave Martinez said following the Nats ’ 6 - 5

Philadelphia improved to three games over .500.

“Being able to go out and do what we've done, what they've done because I feel like I haven't done anything, we've played to the best of our ability and we still can get better,” said Harper, who has been slumping.

The defending World Series champion Nationals have lost six straight and nine of 10 to fall to 12-23.

Trea Turner hit an inside-the-park homer and Michael Taylor went deep for Washington.

“It was one of those losses where you scratch you’re head and just kind of forget about it and come back tomorrow," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “We had our chance there. When you battle in a game that close every opportunity mattered, so you’ve got to drive in that run.”

Didi Gregorius sacrificed J.T. Realmuto to third to start the bottom of the 10th inning against Sean Doolittle (0-2). After Jean Segura was intentionally walked, he took second base on defensive indifference. Pinch-hitter Phil Gosselin was then intentionally walked to load the bases.

Phillies use long ball, strong bullpen outing to beat Braves

  Phillies use long ball, strong bullpen outing to beat Braves ATLANTA — Rhys Hoskins, Didi Gregorius and Alec Bohm homered, Philadelphia's bullpen turned in a rare strong performance and the Phillies snapped a five-game skid with a 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night. It wasn't easy for the Phillies, who watched closer Brandon Workman survive the ninth when Dansby Swanson, the potential tying run, was tagged out at the plate by catcher Andrew Knapp to end the game. The Braves challenged the call, but it was upheld. “It’s a great relay, it's a great play by Knapp, a short-hop," Phillies manager Joe Girardi said. “We needed this win really badly. We had a tough week.

4-game sweep : Bohm lifts Phillies in 10th. By Mark Feinsand @feinsand. Alec Bohm ’ s bases-loaded sacrifice fly scored J.T. Realmuto in the 10th, lifting the Phillies to their ninth win in the past 10 games. • “He jammed his knee on the base,” manager Dave Martinez said following the Nats ’ 6 - 5

Bohm hit a shallow fly to centre field but Realmuto slid home well ahead of Victor Robles' throw. Bohm also had three singles, all to the opposite field.

“He's a hitter,” Girardi said of the rookie third baseman. “I think his approach is great. He likes to hit the ball gap to gap.”

It was Philadelphia's first four-game sweep against the Nationals since May 15-17, 2009, at Washington. The Phillies hadn’t swept a four-game series against the Nationals franchise in Philadelphia since August 9-12, 1991, when they swept the Montreal Expos at Veterans Stadium.

Phillies starter Zach Eflin gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings. Blake Parker (3-0) pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the 10th, retiring Brock Holt on a grounder to end the inning.

Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez allowed four runs — one earned — and eight hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Taylor connected off David Phelps in the seventh, giving the Nationals a 5-4 lead on his fourth homer and second in the series.

The Phillies are giving Kingery this everyday opportunity to seize the job at shortstop, moving J.P. Crawford over to third base since his return from the DL. Mixed in was a wild pitch from Arrieta, a liner Cesar Hernandez didn't catch, and a sacrifice fly that Nick Williams dropped on the exchange.

Pinch-hitter Andrew McCutchen’s RBI grounder off Daniel Hudson tied it at 5 in the eighth.

The Phillies took a 2-0 lead in the first when shifted third baseman Brock Holt couldn’t handle Gregorius’ sharp one-hopper for an error, allowing two runners to score.

Turner tied it at 2 in the third when he circled the bases after his drive hit off the right-centre field wall and bounced back toward left-centre. He scored easily on a headfirst slide with no play at the plate.

“We did a lot of things right," Turner said. "So it’s what you or whoever wants to focus on. Do you want to be positive or do you want to feel bad for yourself? So I think we did a lot of good things and if we play like we did tonight I think we should win more often.”

Rhys Hoskins launched his seventh homer in the bottom half and Gregorius added an RBI double to give Philadelphia a 4-2 lead.

Turner’s RBI groundout and Juan Soto’s RBI single tied it at 4 in the fifth.

DICK ALLEN DAY

The Phillies retired Dick Allen’s No. 15 in a ceremony before the game. The 78-year-old Allen was a seven-time All-Star, 1964 National League Rookie of the year and 1972 American League MVP. He batted .292 with 351 homers, 1,119 RBIs and .912 OPS in 15 seasons, including nine with the Phillies over two stints.
