Phils bring out the offense in AZ win

Alright, we all have to admit it. We were all a little worried when the Phillies ended up getting 25 runs scored on them in 2 games in Arizona and looked absolutely flat on offense in the desert. The Diamondbacks had their way with the Phils but this would change for game 3 of the series as the Phillies bounced back from a 3-game losing streak and went 15-29 RISP last night in a rout, 18-2 Phillies.

The Phillies scored early and often in this game, they were up 5-0 by the end of the 3rd inning. Bryce Harper went 3-4 and Rhys Hoskins and Brandon Marsh each went 3-6 in this game. The Phils scored the most runs in any game this year last night. 13,690 watched baseball in Arizona last night at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.
