Sports Talk with Brodes: Phillies Sweep the Red Sox as the Bullpen HOLDS IT DOWN!
The Phillies sweep the Red Sox in a quick two-game series in Boston. They won game two by a score of 5-2. Drew Smyly struggled big time only throwing three and two-thirds with an 84 pitch count. The Phils were down 2-0 and in the fifth inning, but this is when the game changed. Cesar Hernandez scored due to an error thanks to his work ethic on the base paths, and Bryce Harper hit an opposite field two-run home run over the green monster! Rhys Hoskins walked twice to come around to score both times and he doubled once. Corey Dickerson recorded two clutch hits to get some insurance. As for the bullpen, Jared Hughes, Ranger Suarez, Mike Morin, Jose Alvarez, and Hector Neris threw a total of five and one-third innings while allowing only one walk and three total hits.
