Maikel Franco didn’t know he’d be in Philadelphia’s starting lineup until he arrived at Miller Park. The Milwaukee Brewers likely wish he’d been on the bench.
Franco homered and drove in four runs and the Phillies held off Milwaukee’s ninth-inning rally for a 10-9 victory.
”We didn’t tell him he was going to be starting Josh Shaw Jersey ,” Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said. ”He worked great at-bats. He punished pitchers when they made mistakes. (Franco) has shown an incredible attitude recently.”
Franco, who had been out of the lineup recently after struggling at the plate, said he comes prepared to play, even when his name isn’t on the lineup card.
”I can’t control that,” Franco said. ”I just try to be ready every single day.”
Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera also homered as the Phillies took two of three from the Brewers, who are tied with Atlanta for the best record in the NL.
Milwaukee trailed 10-5 going into the ninth. Jesus Aguilar led off with a home run and Eric Thames hit his second homer of the game, a three-run shot with two outs off Hector Neris.
Christian Yelich followed with a deep drive to center field and Herrera made a leaping catch for the final out, giving Jake Thompson his second save.
”We thought he went deep, the way it looked off the bat,” Thames said. ”We were close to tying that game.”
Tommy Hunter (2-0) picked up the win with one inning of relief.
Hoskins hit a two-run homer in the first off starter Chase Anderson (5-6). Hoskins connected for the second straight day and his 10th of the season.
Thames had his first career leadoff home run, a drive into the right-field bullpen off Aaron Nola. Milwaukee tied it in the third on Lorenzo Cain’s RBI double before Philadelphia regained the lead in the fourth on Franco’s two-run homer.
Franco is 5 for 10 with three home runs in his career against Anderson.
The Brewers pulled even in the fifth on a run-scoring double by Travis Shaw Carlos Hyde Jersey , who then scored on Aguilar’s single that chased Nola.
Nola gave up four runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings.
Nick Williams drove in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single off reliever Jeremy Jeffress in the sixth to give Philadelphia a 6-4 lead. Yelich had a sacrifice fly in the bottom half.
Franco’s bases-loaded single in the seventh drove in two more as the Phillies extended the lead to 8-5. Philadelphia added another run in the eighth on Scott Kingery’s RBI double.
Herrera hit a leadoff homer in the ninth to grow the lead to 10-5 before the Brewers rallied.
The Brewers optioned RHP Jorge Lopez to Triple-A Colorado Springs and recalled RHP Adrian Houser.
Hernan Perez started at shortstop in place of struggling Orlando Arcia. ”He’s been swinging the bat pretty well,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Perez. Arcia, who is hitting .204, was sent to Triple-A Colorado Springs on May 25 but returned five days later after his replacement, Tyler Saladino, injured his left ankle. Perez had two doubles and a walk in five plate appearances.
NOLA’S STREAK ENDS
Nola failed to pitch at least five innings for the first time since May 31, 2017, snapping a streak that spanned 35 starts. ”My command wasn’t where it usually is,” Nola said. ”They hit me around a good bit. They were on me every inning.”
Phillies: Williams was hit on the left elbow by a pitch in the fourth but remained in the game.
Brewers: Houser vomited behind the mound while warming up in the eighth. He stayed in the game and faced two batters before vomiting a second time. He again remained on the mound and faced three more hitters to finish the inning.
”I think it was a combination of traveling this morning and not having a lot of food in me. I was trying to stay hydrated in the bullpen. It’s pretty hot here compared to Colorado Springs. All combined, it got me.”
Houser’s willingness to stay in the game impressed Kapler.
”I have a lot of respect for anybody who would step behind the mound and throw up and step back on the mound and pitch,” he said. … LHP Wade Miley Byron Jones Jersey , sidelined since May 9 with a left oblique injury, threw a simulated game Sunday morning. He will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Biloxi. … Zach Davies, on the DL with right rotator cuff inflammation, is expected to make a rehab start on Tuesday at Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Phillies: Nick Pivetta (4-6) will pitch the opener of a three-game set against St. Louis.
Brewers: Jhoulys Chacin (6-1) takes the mound in the opener of a three-game series at Pittsburgh.
For better or for worse, Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is an expert when it comes to knowing what the NHL looks for when punishing someone for a dangerous hit, and he thinks Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman could be in trouble.
Wilson, who served a three-game suspension earlier this postseason, spoke out about the way Stralman slammed him into the glass in the first period of what turned into a 4-2 victory for Tampa Bay over Washington in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final on Tuesday night.
Stralman was sent to the penalty box for boarding on the play.
”It’s a vulnerable position. There’s no doubt there’s contact with my head. If I’m wearing a helmet from five years ago, I think I’m probably unconscious. So we’ll see what they say,” Wilson said, referring to the possibility of the league’s department of player safety reviewing the matter.
On the play Phillip Gaines Jersey , Wilson was facing the glass not too far from the Capitals’ bench when Stralman hit him from behind. Wilson dropped to the ice and put his right glove to his helmet.
After the game, which allowed the Lightning to cut their series deficit to 2-1, Wilson talked about the ”goose egg on the side of my head” and acknowledged, ”It took me a little bit to collect myself.”
He said the hit included ”everything I’ve heard all year: He sees (jersey) numbers for a good amount of time, and he elevates through the back of my shoulder and head.”
Capitals coach Barry Trotz referred to those as ”red flags,” and added, ”I understand where Tom’s coming from, no question.”
”That’s a lot of `don’ts’ for me. From what they’ve been telling me, that’s a lot of `don’ts.’ If I make that hit, 100 percent I’m probably sitting out. So we’ll see. It’s playoffs. It’s an intense time of year,” Wilson said. ”I don’t think he’s a malicious player Sylvester Williams Jersey , at all. But it’s a pretty dangerous hit. I think a lot of people will say that.”
The game was scoreless at the time of that hit, but Tampa Bay would go on to take a 3-0 lead en route to the victory. Wilson thought that Stralman’s play might have set a tone that affected the way play went.
”(When) someone gets run from behind, for the next couple shifts, you might be a little more tentative coming back for pucks,” Wilson said. ”We’ve got to play through it. There’s going to be emotion.”
Senior vice president of player safety George Parros was at Tuesday’s game. During the season, Parros and Wilson met for about an hour to go over video clips of various hits so the player could understand what the league is watching for.
During Washington’s elimination of two-time reigning Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh in the second round of the playoffs, Wilson missed three games after breaking Penguins rookie Zach Aston-Reese’s jaw in a violent collision.
Wilson also was forced to sit out two preseason games following a late hit on an opponent, then was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for boarding a player shortly after his return.
