On The Hill :

Connor Brogdon ( FB 95-97 ) yielded 6 runs on 5 hits and a walk in 2/3 IP. Just didn’t have command this evening ... his first bad outing in forever.

Bryce Harper singled twice and walked twice in five plate appearances. JT Realmuto and Matt Joyce each singled and walked.

Defensive Gems :


Center Fielder Mickey Moniak made a great diving catch in left center field to record the first out of the game.


Shortstop Nick Maton made a diving stop on a grounder up the middle and flip to second base to record the final out of the fifth inning.


Second Baseman Brad Miller made a diving stop on a hard hit grounder in the eighth inning and threw to second base for the second out of the inning.


Notes :


Jean Segura left the game in the second inning after suffering a right quad strain running to first base on a ground ball he hit. He will be further evaluated tomorrow.


Record is now 8-9
