SHRIMP. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Phillies and Diamondbacks wearing throwback uniforms for retro night, Chase Utley drew a walk to give the Phillies their third straight win–all via the walk-off. They’ve now won five of their last six.
The inning started off with two straight singles by Cody Asche and Jimmy Rollins, followed by an intentional walk to Michael Young. Kevin Frandsen struck out swinging, but Utley was able to draw the game-winning walk off a wild Eury De La Rosa.
Cole Hamels had a decent start, giving up three runs over seven innings. He gave up six hits, struck out four, and walked one. His ERA is now 3.62. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth, his sixth scoreless appearance in his last seven outings.
