Alec Bohm

That’s more like it; Phils hook Marlins 10-3

It was a nice night for bouncing back. Alec Bohm continued his return with a big night, Matt Vierling slung in a couple more hits after an early season slide, and Ranger Suarez shook off a rough first outing to give the Phillies a strong – and much needed – solid start. From start to finish, Philadelphia ruled the night in Miami and will look to split the four-game set Sunday.


OFFENSE: Alec Bohm started the game as the Phillies DH and was slotted fifth in the order against lefty Trevor Roges. The deposed third baseman drove in the first run of the game with a sacrifice fly in the first, drove in another run with an RBI single in the second and lifted another sacrifice fly to plate a run in the sixth. Bohm finished 2-for-3 with a run scored and three driven in and is now batting .700 (7-for-10) on the season… Vierling, Nick Castellanos and Didi Gregorius also had two hits a piece and Johan Camargo and Bryce Harper both drive in two runs. Harper also pulled off a steal of home with Castellanos serving as a decoy off of first base… Bryson Stott is officially in his first major league slump after striking out in all five of his plate appearances on Saturday. Stott is now hitless in his last 14 at-bats with six strikeouts and his average has stooped to .154 (4-for-26) on the year.

HR: PHIL – none; MIA – Soler (1), Garcia (1)

PITCHING: Ranger Suarez gave the Phillies five innings, allowing six hits and three walks, but holding Miami to just two runs. It was an improvement over his first start against the Mets when he lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed three earned runs… Seranthony Dominguez and James Norwood both threw one shutout inning in relief and Bailey Falter gave up one earned run over two innings.

WP – Suarez (1-0, 5.87), LP – Rogers (0-2, 12.15), SV – none

PHIL INS: Jean Segura is getting closer to returning to the lineup after being sidelined by a couple of nagging injuries. Stott has been playing at second base in his absence… Kyle Schwarber got his first night off as a Phillie as he looks to break out of a slide. J.T. Realmuto took his leadoff spot in the order with Hoskins moving up to second.

ON THE AGENDA: Zack Wheeler (0-1, 1.93) will be opposed by RHP Elieser Hernandez (0-1, 7.71) Sunday at 1:40 pm… The road trip continues Monday with a trip to play the Colorado Rockies. Thursday is the first off day of the season before the Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies come into Citizens Bank Park.
