Realmuto is going yard often for the Phillies lately – he hit one out of Wrigley yesterday

 The good news is that the Phillies ended up splitting the series with the Cubs and left town yesterday afternoon with a victory. It ended up being a narrow victory though, with the Phillies up 7-0 in the 4th inning, the team almost let the Cubs back into the game, and they did just that managing to hold on to a 9-7 victory.

Lester couldn’t figure out the Phillies yesterday at Wrigley

Jon Lester didn’t look that sharp, a long HR by JT Realmuto put the Phils up 4-0 with a bomb that went out of Wrigley. The Phils looked like they were having a field day until the the 4th inning when the Cubs started crawling back into the game. It was 7-3 by the bottom of the 4th.

Phillies reliever, Pat Neshek gave up 3 H and 3 ER with 2 HR in his relief appearance, he didn’t have it yesterday at Wrigley. He looked as if he was pitching batting practice yesterday vs the Cubs. The Phils wouldn’t surrender though, as the offense answered to put the Phils just safely up enough to earn the victory.

It’s ironic though, as I mentioned in the latest edition of Phillies Talk Podcast that no Phillies lead seems safe. If they are up by 7 runs, there still is no guarantee that they will be winning that ballgame.

No rest for the weary though, it’s the Brewers up next, with a 3-game series in Milwaukee. Again, the Phillies will be tested as they were in Chicago facing a quality opponent. The Brewers beat the Phils in 3 out of 4 games in Philly just a week or so ago.
