The Phillies stormed back in yesterday’s game with the San Francisco Giants, it looked as if it were in the cards that they would sweep the Giants. It was not to be however, as the Phils dropped the third game of the series and showed they have some fight in them.
The Phils came back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game in the 9th but lost in extra innings.
It’s onto Arizona now for the Phillies in their first trip there of the season and the only trip there this season for 4 games starting tonight and going through the weekend till Sunday. The Dbacks (19-15) are coming off a win against the Dodgers. It’s Cole Hamels going for the Phils against the 4-0 Patrick Corbin out in Arizona in game 1 of the series.
