PHILADELPHIA – Phyllis had to beat the brewers and overcome his own pleasure on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.
Andrew McCutch visited twice, Brad Miller hit three homers on Homer, and Sam Coonrod saved five points in a 6-5 victory over the Brewers. Phyllis went through six innings when a mistake in the composition of the card helped turn the lead of five runs into a lead for one run. The strange event had nuances of the game from July 2015 in Baltimore, when Phyllis’ phone was removed from the hook, which prevented them from bringing relief to the game, and the game from April 201
McCutchen hit a lead homer in the first and a solo in the third. It was the second lead homer in three games for McCutchen. This was the first multi-homer game for McCutchen since September 26, 2017.
Miller hit a triple homer in the second deck in the right field in the third to make it 6-1.
Aaron Nola threw 114 pitches for six assists. Phyllis manager Joe Girardi plans to get Enel De Los Santos to start seventh. Phyllis announced his promotion from Triple-A Lehigh Valley at 5:19 p.m. ET, just under two hours before the game.
One problem: De Los Santos was not on the map, so he couldn’t pass.
David Hale came in and started a four-shot brewery rally. Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a double homer on JoJo Romero’s left hand to make it 6-5.
But Coonrod recorded five outs to bring the Phillies back to .500 and win consecutive games for the first time since their 4-0 start.
