Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies—6:00pm CT ESPN
Phils took it 4-1last night in a different type of unexpected way. Rhys Hoskins, who hasn’t exactly been setting the world on fire until this week... well... continued to set the world on fire. His 3 R dinger and game saving 9th inning catch to rob Freddie Freeman were the two deciding factors as the Phils took their 5th straight to claw back to .500 ball. Zack Eflin was dealing on the mound, as well, darting his sinker in and out of the corners of the strike zone, and befuddling Atlanta hitters (save for Camargo who hit one to Pittsburgh). If not for the rain delay ending his night early, it’s likely Eflin throws a CG, as he was only at 83 pitches when the tarp came out in the 7th. The rain delay gave Atlanta a chance, but Philly’s shaky bullpen patched the save together.
Dansby went 1-3 with a BB, but wasn’t really all that much of a factor, as the offense around him was flailing.
