  Bohm's sacrifice fly gives Phillies 6-5 win, sweep of Nats 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 himAlec 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.

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.

Full Count: Remembering the transformative Tom Seaver

  Full Count: Remembering the transformative Tom Seaver Full Count is theScore's weekly baseball notebook. The New York Mets weren't a joke so much as an abomination until Tom Seaver, the legendary right-hander who died Monday at age 75, came around. For the first half-decade of their existence, the Mets - one of two expansion clubs added for the 1962 campaign - were downright abysmal, averaging a whopping 109 losses per year and only once avoiding last place in the National League. In their inaugural season, even with the great Casey Stengel at the helm, the Mets set a Major League Baseball record for losses, with 120.

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.

“It’s the slowest he’s come out of the box in his career,” Mets manager Luis Rojas said. “He had that big smile running the bases and coming into the dugout.”

The Mets had a few more smiles when Dominic Smith added an RBI triple and Robinson Cano hit a two-run shot in the ninth.

“It’s just a fun time right now,” Nimmo said. “Nothing really is that different. But I just, I’ve just had to pinch myself tonight. It’s one of those nights things work out exactly like you picture them.”

Edwin Diaz loaded the bases in the ninth, but retired Andrew McCutchen to end the game.

Goldschmidt, Cardinals tighten NL Central race, top Cubs

  Goldschmidt, Cardinals tighten NL Central race, top Cubs CHICAGO — Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer off a struggling Jon Lester, and the St. Louis Cardinals gained ground in the NL Central race by beating the Chicago Cubs 7-3 on Sunday night. St. Louis pulled within 1 1/2 games of Chicago with its third consecutive win over the division leaders. The longtime rivals have one game left in their pandemic-shortened season series on Monday. Dakota Hudson (2-2) worked five innings of three-run ball, shrugging off a shaky start. Chicago dropped to 10-15 since its 13-3 start. Anthony Rizzo and Jason Kipnis homered for the Cubs, but Lester (2-2) lasted just 3 1/3 innings in another lacklustre performance.

Bryce Harper homered twice for the Phillies (24-25), who lost for the fifth time in six games and whose NL playoff hopes are hanging by a thread.

“There’s a lot of resiliency here,” manager Joe Girardi said. “I believe in them. I believe we’re going to find a way to get it done.”

Harper hit one homer into shrubbery and a second off the facing of the third deck for the homer-happy Phillies. He was batting just .159 with one home run over the last 24 games until he mashed a pair of batting practice shots off Seth Lugo to bust the slump.

Harper hit his ninth homer of the year in the first, sending the shot well beyond the centre field fence into Philly’s own green monster of trees and shrubs and ivy creeping up a brick wall.

His shot sparked a home run derby off Lugo. Alex Bohm ripped one into the right field seats and Didi Gregorious about planted one in the same spot to give the Phillies three straight home runs for the first time since 2017.

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.

“I think the guys were a little comfortable in the box against me,” Lugo said.

The solo shots, though, only tied the game 3-all after starter Aaron Nola allowed three runs in a shaky first inning.

The Phillies missed a fourth straight homer by inches when Jean Segura pounded one off the out of town scoreboard in right for a triple. He scored on Adam Haseley’s single that set off wild honking and hollering from the Phandemic Krew outside the stadium.

Harper became only the fourth Phillie to homer in the first and second inning of a game when he skied one that smacked off an advertisement off the third deck in territory reached by Barry Bonds and Ryan Howard before him.

Nola was off his game when the Phillies needed him to pitch like an ace, especially with the worst bullpen in baseball behind him. The Mets hit him hard early, left the bases loaded in the fourth, then Pete Alonso homered off him in the sixth. That sparked a rally that saw the Mets tie it 6-all on Nimmo’s two-RBI triple off reliever Blake Parker.

The Phillies left the bases loaded in the eighth when Justin Wilson (2-1) retired Gregorious on a routine flyball.

White Sox, Rays secure berths in the post-season

  White Sox, Rays secure berths in the post-season The Chicago White Sox clinched their first post-season berth since 2008, beating the Minnesota Twins 4-3 Thursday as Eloy Jiménez hit a tiebreaking double that capped a two-run, seventh-inning rally. Chicago (33-17) opened a three-game lead over the second-place Twins (31-21) in the AL Central. The White Sox assured themselves of no worse than a wild-card berth. José Abreu homered and drove in two runs and Edwin Encarnación also homered for Chicago, which won three of four in the series. Chicago trailed 3-2 in the seventh when Abreu beat out an infield hit on a slow grounder that drove in Jarrod Dyson from third base. Jiménez followed with a go-ahead double.

TRAINER’S ROOM

He was writhing in pain and is not expected to play Friday. ... C J.T. Realmuto (hip) sat out again and could miss the weekend series.

NO. 1 DEBUT

Mickey Moniak played left field in his major league debut with the Phillies. The 22-year-old Moniak was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft and hit .252 with 11 home runs and 67 RBIs at Double-A Reading in 2019.
