Kingery is starting to shine as a Phillie


Scott Kingery had the tall task of playing left field last night at Citizens Bank Park and rose to the occasion to do very well. He out an outfield assist and even hit the walk-off winner in the bottom of the 12th inning.

The Phillies pulled out a victory to bring them to 1 game over .500 (6-5) in the early season. The team now goes on the road to Tampa and then onto Atlanta for 3 games each, then they return to CBP to play the Pirates, who have been doing really well early in the season.

Are we seeing the beginning of a good thing with this Phillies team, or did they just happen to get lucky at home against a bad team in Cincinnati? The Tampa Bay Rays, the Phillies next opponent are tied with Miami for the 2nd worst record in baseball at 3-9 each (Cinncy has the 2-9 worst record so far).

The Phils will play the Tampa Rays on Friday night the 13th at 7:10 PM it will be Velasquez vs. Faria. Here is the Baseball-Reference preview of the matchup.
