Phillies Notes: Pair of Players Leave Sunday’s Game Early with Injuries
The Phillies had some good news and bad news on Sunday.
First the good.
The Phils swept the Mets, with a 6-2 win thanks to some good pitching from Zach Wheller. The former Met threw seven strong innings, allowing six hits, and he struck out four to pick up a win on Sunday.
The team also had big days from J.T Reamuto, Bryce Harper and Andrew McCutchen, who combined for Six hits, three runs, and two RBIs in the game.
As for the bad.
A pair of players left the game early due to injury, Jean Segura and Jay Bruce.
Bruce left the game due to a injured quad, while Segura had to be lifted because of a sore hamstring in the bottom of the seventh after running down the first base line. McCutchen replaced Bruce in the game, and belted a two-run home run. Neil Walker entered and played second base for Segura.
It puts the Phillies in a tough spot with both Roman Quinn and Adam Haseley already on the IL, meaning Scott Kingery is now playing centerfield. If Segura is out for an extended time, the Phils might have to turn to Walker to play second base while he is out.
Walker is hitting just .133 in 15 at-bats this season.
