The Philadelphia Phillies salvaged their final game against the Arizona Diamondbacks by winning 6-5 in 10 innings. The Phillies’ offense was provided a boost in the sixth inning and later by Alec Bohm, Brandon Marsh, and Trea Turner. The trio combined for all six Phillies’ runs.
The Phillies head south on Thursday for a four-game Memorial Day weekend tilt against the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves. The starters for the game are Aaron Nola (4-3, 4.31 ERA) for Philly and Dylan Dodd (2-1, 6.46 ERA) for Atlanta.
Nobody wants to see the umpires make the game about themselves. Well, that’s precisely what happened in yesterday’s win. The overall confusion emoted by thousands of people including the umpires and players occurred in the top of the 10th inning. John Kruk was ticked off, rightfully so, at the debacle.

- Is anybody wondering how Rhys Hoskins has been doing? The last major report about him was his successful surgery on the left ACL.
