7/2/2015 | Young Phillies hitters have big night vs. Brewers
The Phillies lost unceremoniously. In an 8-7 defeat that lasted 11 innings, the Phillies sent six batters to the plate in extra innings. The results? Flyout. Strikeout. Popout. Groundout. Groundout. Groundout. But to characterize the entire loss based on the lack of extra-inning offensive output is a fallacy. The Phillies notched 16 hits on Thursday night and clawed back from a three-run deficit in the seventh inning to even force extras.
