Sports Talk with Brodes: Phillies Blow a Late Lead in 9-8 Loss to Braves!
The Phillies blew a 7-2 lead from the seventh inning on as Brian McCann hit a walk off in the ninth to win 9-8. Hector Neris blew his first game of the year. This truly was a crushing loss after a decent start by Nick Pivetta. The bullpen just could not hold on. Bryce Harper hit a three-run bomb which was nice to see. Scott Kingery and Rhys Hoskins hit home runs as well, but the devastation of the loss is too much.
