At The Plate :
Darick Hall scalded a line drive to left field that was caught on the track in the sixth inning, a very strong wind blowing in knocked it down. The skipper noticed and fist bumped Darick in the dugout 👍. He intentionally bunted down the third base line to lead off the ninth inning to beat the shift 😀.
Doubles : Bryce Harper, Jeff Mathis
Defensive Gems :
Matt Moore picked off Bo Bichette at second base in the third inning as shortstop Didi Gregorius snuck behind him to take the throw and make the tag 😎
